2020 Ann Arbor Easter is very different than past years since Easter falls during the COVID-19 stay at home order (Check out our COVID-19 information and resources). This year there will be no opportunities to meet the Easter Bunny, attend Egg Hunts, or go to brunch. We look forward to all of the great Easter events returning for 2021.
While I enjoy Brunch any time of year, Easter is something special.
At Home Easter Brunch Ideas
Easter Brunch is going to look very different this year. No one is going out for brunch or having large family or friend gatherings (at least they shouldn’t be). I have some menu suggestions. I hope you have a lot of eggs.
- Baked French Toast – This is the recipe we use and love. My tip be sure to bake on a cookie sheet in case it bubbles over (it frequently does). I can make my own bread, and I think I already have enough eggs if I cannot get more by Easter
- Hash Brown Egg Bake – Ca be modified to be vegetarian. replace the bacon with vegetables.
- Spiral Ham – I am planning to get one next week with my grocery order. With only 3 of us, it will give us lunches, soup, and I can freeze for omelettes and frittatas.
- Breakfast Pizza – Breakfast pizza is one of the few ways that my daughter will eat eggs.
Do you know of any local restaurants with special Easter brunch or dinner menus for carryout or delivery?

Not Offering Brunch in 2019
A few locations that offered Easter Brunches in past years are not offering them in 2019. I called both the Sheraton Ann Arbor and Guy Hollerins (Holiday Inn) and neither are offering an Easter brunch in 2019.
Our Ann Arbor Brunch Experiences
We have visited several of the listed locations for brunch – either Easter or Mother’s Day in most cases. We have been out for Mother’s Day brunch more frequently than Easter, so I wanted to include those experiences as well.
One of my favorite Ann Arbor brunches is Gandy Dancer. I definitely recommend their brunch, but they are sold out. But, it’s a good time to book a Mother’s Day reservation. We had brunch there for my daughter’s first Easter. We didn’t have a reservation but arrived when they opened and were able to get a table in the bar with a minimal wait. That was 13 years ago and I don’t think they offer walk up seating anymore.
Four years ago we had Mother’s Day brunch at the Eagle Crest Marriott. Rather than continuous reservations, they offer several seating times when they change over the entire restaurant. We enjoyed our brunch on Mother’s Day. We returned for Valentine’s Day brunch in 2016 which happened to be on a Sunday. Unfortunately, they were not prepared for a Valentine’s Day rush since it does not usually fall on a Saturday. Despite this experience, I would return for a holiday or a regular Sunday brunch.
Two years ago we had Mother’s Day brunch at Relish shortly after they opened. We enjoyed our meal and recommend it for either Easter or Mother’s Day.
We’ve also had brunch at Weber’s, but I think it was their regular Sunday brunch buffet and not a holiday buffet. I would expect the holiday buffet to be expanded from a regular Sunday buffet.
