Easter brunch is a huge deal, which on paper, according to the calendar, marks the arrival of spring. But, as you know in Texas, it means the dog days of the summer are right around the corner. That’s why it’s a great time to bask in the sun for hours with family and friends while it’s still perfectly comfortable to do so. What better way to do that than dining over holiday dishes?

In Austin, there are more options and activities to count. You can indulge in a massive Easter egg hunt at Fareground, get a little fancy at Jeffrey’s, visit the Hill Country at Tillie’s, head to Yellow Jacket Social Club for a DJ set, or opt for Mediterranean fare at Aba. All recommendations take place on Sunday, April, 9, unless otherwise noted.

If family and friends plan to celebrate 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 particular menu changes.
