Easter Brunch in San Diego

A handful of picks for where to eat Easter Brunch this Sunday.


That big ol' bunny is hopping into town this Sunday, and there's plenty of options for brunch, whether you've got the kids in tow or not. Check out our picks:

Easter Brunch at the San Diego Zoo

Head to the Treetops banquet room at Albert's restaurant at the San Diego Zoo and feast on a special Easter buffet prepared by the Zoo's Executive Chef, Chris Mirguet and Albert’s Chef Charles Boukas.

It's all about the little extras at BICE this Easter. Tables will be adorned with chocolate Easter egg baskets, and each reservation will be given a voucher to come back and receive a complimentary entree. Stop in for a prix fixe late lunch or dinner.

George's California Modern

Chef Trey Foshee only serves brunch two times a year: Easter and Mother's Day. This year, the Easter brunch menu has everything from purple broccoli ravioli to prime short rib hash, as well as gourmet versions of brunch standards, like brioche French toast with Chino Farms strawberries and Meyer lemon cream, and eggs benny with fresh Dungeness crab. Entrees range from $15-$32. Reservations can be made online.


While the kids hunt for eggs (every hour, on the hour), adults can toast the bunny by creating their own Bloody Mary, and feasting on Burlap's brunch dishes, like crab cake eggs Benedict, biscuits and gravy, and scrambles. Burlap is also open for Easter dinner. In addition to the full brunch and dinner menus, larger groups can order a whole roasted pig and eat family-style. Advance notice is required.
