They're offering "three days of copious amounts of food, bubbly and chocolate," not to mention some of the best coffee in town. Bare in mind they don't take reservations.

It would be pretty silly not to include Café Régine on this list, and while there won't be a special Easter menu per se, the brunches are just too good not to mention! Waffles, French Toast, omelettes and all the other good stuff, you can't really go wrong here, especially not with their deep-fried chocolate truffles! Bare in mind they don't take reservations.
