Where to Get Easter Brunch

Spring is here and Easter is right around the corner. For many of us, this means sweet chocolates and Sunday Brunch.

Easter always falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon in spring. It’s a time to gather with our friends and family to celebrate traditions and new beginnings. In Victoria, spring is in full bloom; cherry blossoms float in the air and daffodils line our streets. It’s an exciting time of year as we start making plans for summer—for the garden, for fixing things around the house and of course, there’s the Easter brunch menu…

However, if you’d prefer to just sit back and relax while sampling classic, delicious brunch fare, consider the following restaurants for this year’s Easter feast. You’ll find something for the whole family, too, from Easter egg hunts, to crafts making for the kids, to mimosas and hot cross buns.
