This year, Easter falls on Sunday, April 16 and, perhaps more than any other holiday, is one best celebrated over brunch. Alongside the traditional Easter egg hunts (and a Bunny Tea!) San Diego’s restaurants, hotels and ranches are putting on a range of additional blowout options: from champagne buffets and a four-course Italian feast to bottomless mimosas and a countryside picnic in North County.

Whether you're looking to soak up some spring sunshine at an outdoor venue or sip cocktails and devour fresh seafood at a more luxe beachside locale, Eater's here to help you find the perfect place for Easter brunch.

Not sure where to make reservation? Here are a dozen spots around San Diego to celebrate Easter Sunday in good gourmet standing.
