It happens but once a year: that day when kids are not only allowed but encouraged to eat pure chocolate for breakfast. There’s fun for adults too…the whole family, in fact, at the Easter brunch buffets that take place around town.

Here are five with extensive options that will please both kids and adults–whether the latter want to slurp oysters or secretly just want to eat multiple desserts for breakfast, too.

All of the following brunch buffets take place on Easter Sunday (April 5); be sure to make reservations, and come hungry. (You have been officially warned not to fill up on chocolate eggs!)

Dockside Restaurant

Located on Granville Island, this restaurant has a view of the water and is well-situated for a walk along False Creek after the meal.

Buffet highlights include crab devilled eggs, chilled seafood, prime rib, and blueberry and chocolate pancakes.

There are two seatings: 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. The cost is $64.95 per person for adults and $29.95 for kids aged six to 12 (kids under five are free). Call 604-685-7070 for reservations or find more info here.
