Easter brunch is a big deal, heralding the arrival of spring. Families and friends gather to dine on holiday dishes like lamb, rabbit, fresh produce, and much more, paired with brunch-appropriate cocktails.

In Austin, there's something for everyone on Easter, from egg hunts at Fareground, brunch buffets at Second Bar + Kitchen, or fancy fare at Jeffrey’s. Everything takes place on Sunday, April 17, unless otherwise noted.

If family and friends are planning on celebrating at home, check out Eater’s takeout Easter guide. For other brunch ideas, scope out Eater's brunch heatmap and essential brunch guide, but note that there might be holiday closures or special menu changes.

If there is an Easter celebration, meal, or party missing on the map below, let Eater know through austin@eater.com

As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Follow the business’s rules, be sure to wear a mask, and tip well.

Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; it may pose a risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial COVID transmission. The latest CDC guidance is here; find a COVID-19 vaccination site here.
