Eat Here This Easter (Update)

No plans for Easter brunch? Well, here are a few options I’ve found on the Internet. I’m sure there are many more, so please add any you know of in the comments.

Easter brunch is probably my favorite thing about Easter, along with hard-boiled eggs and copious amounts of chocolate and jelly beans. Here are a few brunches I found.

Easter Brunch

The Easter Brunch Buffet at Whitey’s (218.773.1831)┬áin East Grand Forks runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday. There’s an assortment of salads like caprese and pasta, roast turkey, honey-glazed ham, mashed potatoes, gravy and stuffing, biscuits and gravy, eggs, omelettes made to order, bacon, sausage, American fries and French toast.

All of that sounds pretty pretty good. I couldn’t find a price on their website, though. After reopening under new ownership, Whitey’s has tried for a more up-scale dining experience. They’ve gotten rid of the back bar and changed it to a formal dining room. The prices are pretty stiff on their regular menu, just to warn you, so the brunch buffet may come with a hefty bill.

Or check out the Easter Brunch at the Green Mill on Columbia Road (701-780-9000). The website says they were taking reservations, and seeing as it’s already Easter Eve, they may be full.

The menu includes assorted fresh pastries, muffins, doughnuts and “fresh homemade caramel rolls.” A “pecan Craisen spinach salad,” Caeser salad, “famous spinach dip,” fresh fruit, baked brie, apple-smoked bacon, jumbo sausage links, French toast, eggs Benedict, mashed potatoes, pizza, asparagus with Hollandaise sauce, chicken cordon bleu, bourbon-glazed grilled salmon, garlic shrimp fettuccine, honey-baked ham, prime rib, kid’s menu items and assorted desserts. That’s basically something for everyone. I would go for the prime rib.

Update 6:30 p.m. Saturday

A few of your have been weighing in on other places to enjoy brunch this Easter Sunday. “Chef Alex” says that brunch at Canad Inn is divided between two restaurants: “Aalto’s and L’Bistro are holiday-specific menus that have been tailored to local tastes by our executive chef.”

Alex continues: “The menu is vast and prepared fresh, including a separate dessert buffet.”

Dessert buffet!? Yes!

Also, another person said that there is a brunch buffet at Howard Johnson’s in Grand Forks, too.
