If you're looking for some good Easter eats to follow your Good Friday, might I suggest the Don Cesar for brunch?
The Don CeSar is one of the most well-recognized and beloved beach hotels in the world, with its pastel-pink facade seen from St. Pete Beach shores a signature of Florida postcards. Locals call it "The Don" or "The Pink Palace," and the property can boast of its historical architecture, celebrity clientele, sugar-sand beaches, and sunsets as vibrant as the hotel itself.
It also hosts quite the food scene from homemade ice cream to locally-sourced cuisine, and a main attraction is the champagne brunch, which is amplified on the Easter holiday.
Easter Brunch in the Don Cesar's King Charles Ballroom runs from 10:30 am to 3:00 pm, and includes "a variety of options including a raw bar, chicken and waffles, omelets made to order, bao bun station, hand-carved prime rib and hickory smoked ham all while sipping on unlimited champagne." This special event will happen on Easter, April 1st, and is $85 for adults and $26 for children 5-12. It includes all-you-can-eat buffet, all-you-can-drink champagne, and self-parking under the legendary hotel included.
If you seek something slightly less formal, they also serve this brunch at their Sea Porch and Rowe Bar for $65 per adult, $26 for children, and includes the same but with a slightly more casual atmosphere from 11 am to 3 pm.
It is imperative that you make a reservation, especially for large parties, especially considering that non-holiday weekend brunches are in high demand. Reservations can be made online at OpenTable, or you may contact their concierge directly at 727-363-5077. Don’t wait if you want to hop over to the beach this Easter, or you’ll be hunting for another brunch after church.
Between the egg-cellent food, the unlimited bubbles, and the apropos pastel pink palace as a backdrop, there is no better way to celebrate the season than the Don Cesar Easter Brunch this hoppy holiday!
