Next Sunday is Easter Sunday, the holiest day of the year for Christians as we celebrate the resurrection! As a kid I remember getting dolled up in bright spring colors, having my hair straightened and heading to church to celebrate the holiday. Once at home, our Easter breakfast and subsequent dinner were usually more elaborate than every other Sunday meal, with a ham or roast and desserts. Now, we the increased popularity of brunch I imagine my mother would have opted for that instead! It seems to me that a brunch after Easter service goes hand and in hand. With that in mind, I compiled a list for you of some Easter brunch options. Many of these require reservations, so do not delay!
Harold’s in the Heights
Harold’s is honestly outdoing themselves for Easter Brunch! For $45 guests will be treated to a FOUR-course brunch and a complimentary mimosa. Per usual, the menu is heavy on the New Orleans inspired dishes including crawfish crepes and blue crab croquettes. Reservations can be made by phone (713-360-6204) and online. For those seeking a more casual a la carte brunch experience, the downstairs tap room has you covered.
I visited Sambuca for Happy Hours some years back and had NO idea they even had a brunch! Their Easter brunch will feature live music, beef & ham stations, $3 mimosas, $3 bloody Mary’s and traditional breakfast items. The price isn’t too bad either. Adults can expect to pay $32.95 and children ten and under are only $9.95.
For Easter, Union Kitchen will feature a special menu with three classic entrees. In addition to their entrees they have a special buttermilk pancake stack appetizers. If anyone goes and orders this make sure you tag me on Instagram! I personally think this is a genius idea for an appetizer! For reservations, just call your preferred location!
Rustic Oak Gastro Pub and Wine
This is one of my favorite brunch spots in Houston. Being housed in a converted home makes all meals there “homey” and perfect for a holiday brunch. I checked their website and did not see anything planned just yet for Easter, but I would be surprised if they would not have a special buffet for the holiday. You can check out my post here for more information on the menu offerings.
One of my favorite brunch spots, Lucille’s is getting in the game early by hosting a good Friday brunch from 11am-4pm. For Easter, Lucille’s will offer their standard brunch menu and live music on their back patio.
There are some places that just fit the look of what you are going for. Backstreet is that kind of spot and they really fit “the look” for an Easter Sunday brunch. There brunch menu is laid out here and is priced at $48 per person and $15 for children.
Benjy’s on Washington
For just $39 per person, you can enjoy a three course Easter Brunch from Benjy’s! Their menu is set up like Houston Restaurant Weeks where you have several options to pick from with each course. Best of all, they even included their famous Mom’s chocolate cake.
Baba Yega, hands down has one of the best brunch buffets in Houston. Another draw to me though for Spring time brunches is the back patio which is filled with beautiful flowers and a few tropical birds. I note this because the scenery makes for great Easter pictures! So not only will you get your great Easter brunch, but you can have your obligatory Easter photoshoot all in one spot! Baba Yega also takes reservations for parties over 6 on their website.
The Dunlavy is a great location with water views and beautiful chandeliers! For brunch, the Dunlavy will host a brunch buffet from 10am-3pm, which is $65 for adults and $12 for kiddos. The menu is featured on their website. Reservations are required. To reserve ahead just call, 713-542-1873.
Holley’s Seafood Restaurant and Oyster Bar
I have a friend who constantly sings the praises of Holley’s brunch. While I have yet to visit for brunch, my lunch and dinner experiences have been great. One glance at this Easter brunch menu though tells me I should probably put Holley’s brunch at the top of my list. For $55 guests will be treated to a four course meal with several options for each course.
