While Easter may fall on April Fool’s Day this year, it’s safe to say that Easter brunch is no joke. Hell hath no fury than a person cut off at the carving station line. But whether you’re looking for a traditional post-Easter mass brunch spot or just want to mix up your usual Sunday Funday, check out what’s happening in Logan Square.
Daisies (2523 N. Milwaukee Ave.)
Daisies may be relatively new to Logan Square’s dining scene but that hasn’t stopped Chef Joe Frillman from establishing himself as the neighborhood’s pasta pro. The 2018 Jean Banchet winner for Best Neighborhood Restaurant has been dishing up seasonal, innovative pasta creations for dinner but recently expanded its service to include weekend brunch. Daisies is hosting a prix fixe brunch menu at $25 per person, which includes a variety of pastries for the table and a breakfast entree.

Katherine Anne Confections (2745 W. Armitage Ave.)
If you’re more about the Easter basket than the Easter brunch, consider upgrading that tired chocolate bunny to one of Katherine Anne’s gorgeous Easter eggs. It looks like this Easter treat is still in the research and development phase, but keep an eye on their Facebook page and website for updates. This beloved Logan Square confectionery has been satisfying the neighborhood’s sweet tooth for more than ten years with its hand-dipped truffles, caramels, marshmallows and wildly popular hot chocolate. So if you want the most baller basket this holiday, look no further than Katherine Anne Confections.
Longman & Eagle (2657 N. Kedzie Ave.)
Longman & Eagle’s annual Adult Easter Egg Hunt is back with its holy trinity of Easter celebrations: eggs, prizes, and whiskey. Teams of two can register on L&E’s website at $5 per person and all proceeds will be donated to One Tail at a Time. The egg hunt will go from 12 p.m. – 2 p.m. and participants are invited to a post-hunt block party at L&E for the official egg count, prizes, food and music.
Park & Field (3509 W. Fullerton Ave.)
In case you want to include the kiddos in any egg hunting festivities, head on over to Park & Field for their Easter brunch and family-friendly egg hunt. For $40 per adult and $20 per child, you and yours can enjoy a gourmet brunch buffet including prime rib, omelets, charcuterie, smoked salmon, and pastries; and bottomless wine, drinks, and drafts. Bonus: The little ones can expect a visit from the Easter Bunny! For more details and to make reservations, visit their website.
