50 Easter brunches and bakery specials in Chicago and the suburbs

April 10, 2017

Easter brunch can be hectic, especially if the whole family is getting together to celebrate. Make your day a lot easier by leaving the cooking to a restaurant — or at least count on a local bakery to handle the dessert. These spots in Chicago and the suburbs have you covered.

*Unless otherwise listed, all dine-in packages occur Sunday, April 16 and do not include tax or gratuity.*


Cocoa + Co. Sweet treats are as beautiful as they are tasty at Cocoa + Co. The Easter lineup includes chocolate garden bunnies ($13.50), a bunny lunchbox (two marshmallow-filled chocolate bunnies in a Mariebelle lunchbox, $17), a faux-nest filled with chocolate pastel eggs ($12) and large, lovely hand-painted chocolate eggs filled with rich ganache, sea-salt caramel or espresso-infused caramel ($11). Available now through Easter. 1651 N Wells St., 312-624-8540,

Glazed and Infused Now for the cutest item on the list: “Bunny butt” doughnuts from Glazed and Infused, which are adorably decorated to look — not taste, thankfully — like the backside of a bunny rabbit. Those uninterested in eating a bunny butt can opt for a traditional doughnut with “Happy Easter” written in frosting, but we’re not sure why you would. Available April 14-16. Multiple locations,

Hewn You won’t lack for holiday baked goods at this Evanston bakery, which is offering hot cross buns, bunny-shaped sugar cookies and much more. Guests are encouraged to call ahead to order and secure specific items. Now through Easter. 810 Dempster St., Evanston, 847-869-4396,
