The bunny and brunch are on the way. Easter weekend is approaching and it’s time to make those brunch plans.

We rounded up a few of this year’s offerings. Pro tip: We recommend booking early before everywhere fills up.

Timpano Hyde Park

The luxe eatery is serving up specials all weekend long, starting Friday, March 29. Known for its legendary cheese wheel, the menu features Lobster Arancini, Pistachio-Crusted Lamb Chops, and a Coconut Bread Pudding.


After you hunt your tail off at the St. Pete Pier Spring Festival & Easter Egg Hunt, walk over to feast at the Beach Drive eatery. The vibey spot will have a springy photo backdrop for pics, a family-style brunch complete with Easter Ham Hash, and festive drinks via the Spritz Cart.

Yacht Starship

Get ready to cruise alongside the Easter Bunny. The fleet launches from Tampa + Clearwater for an Easter-themed brunch or dinner cruise, and includes an Easter meal, mimosas or a house bar, a DJ, and photo ops with the Easter Bunny.

An array of colorful cocktails sits on a marble tabletop.

The whole fleet of spring-themed drinks has arrived at the JW Marriott.

JW Marriott Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa

Celebrate the holiday TBAY style — at the beach. The hotel is putting on a brunch buffet + a “Bunny Themed Buffet Station” with treats like red velvet bunny cupcakes and bunny cookies.

Or, celebrate the new season with “Spring Sips” at the hotel’s Latitude 28° restaurant or Lobby Bar — there’s a new cocktail featured every Friday through April.

Three St. Patrick's Day-themed iced coffee drinks sit side by side with green and gold beads and signs reading "Pot of Gold" and "Happy Go Lucky."

Sample March-themed drinks at Sage’s Playground.

Looking for a post-brunch treat? We have ideas:

Chill Bros. Scoop Shop

Taste the rainbow with a scoop of the creamery’s seasonal Luck of the Irish Ice Cream, packed with hand-picked marshmallow charms. And there’s ample locations across the Cigar City — so you can steal from Lucky the Leprechaun wherever the wind takes you.

Sage’s Playground

More of a post-meal espresso person than dessert lover? Stop by this local coffee joint for a Lucky Charms Latte, Nutty Irishman, or Thin Mint Cold Brew.
