Going out for a traditional Easter brunch? Try eating out at some of these superb restaurants and eateries! The Blue Jam Café has amazing vegetarian options, and is one of my favorite spots for French toast. Looking for something a bit more traditional, or a bit more international? Try brunching at The Pikey! This traditional English pub is in Los Angeles, and serves up an Easter brunch in true English fashion. If you have a bit more time on your hands this Easter weekend, try cooking brunch yourself! My personal favorite recipes are this tofu quiche with broccoli and a side of German potato pancakes.

Easter Weekend: Communing with Nature

If you’re eager to get some sweet pictures of your little one with some adorable little bunny rabbits, try going to the LA Zoo! Big Bunny’s Spring Fling offers you a chance to let your kiddo pet bunnies, get their face painted and learn about different animals. If you are looking for something a little bit more laid back, then you can go to the Descanso Gardens for a leisurely stroll through the flowers. Oh, and you get to eat some food while you’re there, too.

Easter Weekend: Family Fun

There’s nothing better than going on an egg hunt on Easter weekend! Although egg hunts are usually reserved for the young’uns in the family, the Easter Hoppening is for all ages! Admission for the event is free, and there are lots of different food options once you get in. The only thing to keep in mind is that you need to bring your own basket. You can also go to Grand Hope Park in Downtown Los Angeles for the annual EasterFest. Parking is free on Sundays, and there are tons of fun things for kids to do. From bouncy houses to arts and crafts, your child is sure to have the time of his or her young life.
