Hop to It! Easter Brunch in Metro Detroit

By: Toni Cunningham | March 29, 2013

Every family has their special holiday traditions, most of which involve food. Easter is no different, and once the egg hunt is over, stomachs are likely to start grumbling.

Luckily, numerous Metro Detroit restaurants are holding special Easter brunches, at a variety of prices. Whether you’ve got the whole extended family in tow or are spending the day with your close-knit clan, consider stepping out of the kitchen on March 31. While these might make a slight dent on your wallet, it’ll be worth it to take a vacation from cooking yet another holiday feast:

No.VI Chophouse, 27000 Karevich Dr., Novi, will serve brunch from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The spread will feature an omelette station, breakfast station, sweet table and more. Adults: $29.95; children ages 6-12: $15.95; children under age 5: free.

The Root Restaurant and Bar, 340 Town Center Blvd., White Lake, will feature hot and cold food stations with dishes including Spinach Salad, Mac & Cheese, Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes and more.

Prime 29, 6545 Orchard Lake Rd., West Bloomfield, is having a brunch complete with an egg hunt, prizes and a visit from the Easter Bunny, so it’s a great option for families.

Joe Muer Seafood, 400 Renaissance Center #1404, Detroit, will hold brunch from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., featuring made to order omelettes, Belgian waffles, Dearborn ham, maple cured bacon, sushi and more. No brunch would be complete without the restaurant’s famous coconut crème cake, either. Adults: $39.99; children ages 6-14: $19.99; children under age 5: free.

5ive, 44045 5 Mile Rd., Plymouth, is hosting an Easter brunch from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The menu includes an appetizer trio, salad, main course (there are 14 different choices, such as Banana-Nutella crepes, Braised Pork Belly and Scotch Egg Benedict) and dessert trio.
