The Best Spots in the Greater Sacramento Area for Easter Brunch
Spring is upon us, and that means one thing: Easter is right around the corner! After the Easter Bunny pays a visit and the kiddos find every last egg, why not give yourself a break and let someone else do the cooking? Easter brunch is a popular way to celebrate the holiday, but that doesn’t mean you have to do all the work. There are several restaurants in and around the greater Sacramento area where you can get all the traditional brunch foods — eggs Benedict, biscuits and gravy, chicken and waffles, and of course ham and eggs!
