Easter Sunday Brunch in Alpharetta

Every Friday Roots in Alpharetta features an article on food and dining in a series called Foodie Friday.

We always go to Grandma’s house after church on Easter. And in our family,  Easter supper is akin to Thanksgiving lite. It’s a pretty big feast.

But I recognize that some folks like to eat out on this occasion. There are a handful of local restaurants that do Sunday brunch week in and week out. We’ll go over a few of them. And then there’s Alpharetta’s fine dining establishments and their opulent Easter spreads.

Upscale Breakfast – This segment of the restaurant world has taken off as of late. J Christopher’s was the only player in town for many years. Not any more. Check out Another Broken Egg on Old Milton Parkway. Or in Johns Creek try Egg Harbor Cafe and First Watch.

Pappadeaux – This small chain of Cajun/Creole restaurants is underrated in my opinion. They do a Sunday brunch for $22 per person which is similar to their lunch buffet. For Easter they may kick it up a notch.

Fine Dining – Talk about pulling out all the stops. Alpharetta’s fine dining restaurants go to extremes for Easter brunch.

At the top of the list is Cabernet Steakhouse on Windward. Their Easter brunch buffet includes prime rib, lobster tail and leg of lamb, not to mention traditional breakfast items. It’s also $50 per person.

Milton’s Cuisine will do a braised lamb ragout on their Easter spread. The rest of their buffet is southern comfort food including favorites like fried chicken and shrimp and grits. It’s $32 per person.

Ray’s on the Creek (formerly Killer Creek) will do Easter brunch for $30. It’s also buffet style. And don’t forget the Sedgwick family of restaurants. Vinny’s will have lunch and dinner specials on Easter but no buffet.

    Great places but you can’t leave Village Tavern off the list.
