Tired of dining at the same old restaurant on Easter each year? Change it up on Sunday, April 16, with sweet treats and a decadent brunch at one of these San Antonio spots. Here's a list of bakeries and restaurants showcasing special menus for Easter — make your reservations before the tables fill up.
Throughout the month of April, Bakery Lorraine is offering special Easter-themed desserts to make kids and adults swoon. Among the tasty treats are egg-shaped moon pies, Neapolitan bunnies, lemon berry chicks, and carrot cake. Bakery Lorraine will be open during regular hours on Easter.
