Whether “Easter Brunch” brings good or bad memories to mind is unimportant here. What is important is that you eat well this Sunday while avoiding as much madness as humanly possible (JK, face it you’re going out to brunch on Easter Sunday, there WILL be madness). Which is why we rounded up a couple of our favorite options (IF you can snag a table – hurry!) for brunch this Easter Sunday in and around Buffalo.

Aro Bar de Tapas

5415 Sheridan Dr, Buffalo / (716) 631-1000
New to the WNY restaurant scene and even newer to the brunch scene, Aro is making a name for itself as Buffalo’s first Spanish restaurant with authentic dishes, attention to detail, and a fantastic dessert program. We think your Easter brunch needs Sangria. Don’t you agree?

The Black Sheep Brunch on the West Side in Buffalo NY

H.R.E.A.M. at Black Sheep / Step Out Buffalo

Black Sheep

367 Connecticut Street, Buffalo / (716) 884 -1100
Thank the lord Black Sheep’s beautiful brunch has returned, and just in time for Easter. The menu is concise, well thought out, and hits all the right notes. The H.R.E.A.M. is a dream and the pancakes are so fluffy I’m gonna die.

New York Beer Project, Buffalo Breweries, Step Out Buffalo

New York Beer Project / Step Out Buffalo

New York Beer Project

6933 S Transit Rd, Lockport / (716) 743-NYBP
One of the newer breweries in town, NYBP is actually a full service restaurant too. The place is huge and has multiple rooms/areas, each with a slightly different vibe. This Easter they’re hosting a brunch event with a special menu, $18 for adults, $9 for kids. Regular seating will take place in the main dining room while the tap room and loft will serve brunch Buffett style. Check out the full brunch menu and drink specials here. All kids ages 2 – 12 at NYBP on Easter Sunday will get a special ticket to attend the Easter Egg Hunt in the indoor beer garden.

Providence Social

490 Rhode Island St, Buffalo / 716) 464-3786
If you’re looking for a fun spot to gather with friends on this holiday weekend head to Buffalo’s West Side for some waffles, eggs, Bloody Marys, and a whole bunch of great beer options at Providence Social. They just renovated their bar (in preparation for #patioseason), put in 24 taps, and are now serving gems like Pineapple Sculpin from Ballast Point (San Diego), Why Can’t IBU? from Stillwater Brewing (Baltimore) and La Fin Du Monde from Unibroue (Chambly, Quebec).

Toutant Cinnamon Rolls

437 Ellicott St, Buffalo / 716 342 2901
One of the best restaurants on this list for the whole family on Easter Sunday (if you can get a reservation for the whole family, that is). Toutant has something for everyone often including comfort foods like fried chicken and homemade cinnamon rolls, and biscuits and gravy. Toutant will have extended brunch hours this Sunday (11:30am – 4pm, no dinner service) and will be serving specials and carving fresh T-Meadow “City” Ham.
