Where to Dine for Easter Sunday, 2017

Denver's family-friendly brunches for the holiday weekend

View as Map

Easter is just the occasion to pull out your pastels, hand-dye some eggs and enjoy special family time. But it is also a fabulous excuse to eat. Easter Brunch is not just any breakfast — it's one of the most extravagant morning meals of the year. Instead of toiling away in the kitchen, restaurants around town will be offering special prix fixe menus and lavish spreads.

The question is, where will you be indulging this year? If you're still undecided, we've done the legwork and hunted down the best Easter brunches imaginable throughout every corner of the Mile High City. But, we recommend making reservations.

From breakfast buffets to exclusive menus, Easter Sunday is being celebrated in spirited fashion on the dining scene throughout Denver this year. Delectable holiday favorites and out-of-this-world boozy breakfast specials are just a few of the enticements chefs use to woo guests to a daytime celebration.
