Some people like Easter because they think bunnies are cute. Other people like Easter because it means they get to wear fancy hats and brightly colored dresses (confession: that’s why I like Easter – I guess I can’t speak for the rest of you).
Whatever the reasoning behind your enthusiasm for the holiday, chances are you and your family want to (or have to, depending on how you feel about it) spend the day together. What’s the best way to accomplish this while keeping everyone as pleasant as possible? Well, Sunday brunch, of course!
There are plenty of places on the Adirondack Coast offering a diverse range of Easter specialties. Visit one of the locations below and keep everyone in your party “hoppy” –even after they’ve eaten all the jelly beans at the bottom of their Easter baskets.
