Curious as to which B-Town restaurants are offering Easter specials? We've got it covered below.

Underground Bakery

Starting on Good Friday, Underground Bakery will have four flavors of "Easter eggs" in their bakery case: strawberries & cream, Lucky Charms, white mocha, and candy crush.

Feast Market & Cellar

Feast is offering beautiful bunny cupcakes and other Easter-themed desserts on a first-come, first-served basis on Friday & Saturday of the holiday weekend. Pick up a dozen assorted treats to add a special touch to your Easter gathering!


Grazie Italiano

Grazie will serve steak and eggs with breakfast potatoes & toast for brunch on Easter Sunday. The restaurant will be open from 10:00 am-2:30 pm, and reservations are recommended.

The Owlery

On Easter Sunday from 10:00 am-2:00 pm, The Owlery will serve confetti pancakes, and their bakery case will be filled with vegan Easter-themed treats.

Cardinal Spirits

On Easter weekend, Cardinal Spirits will offer rabbit cacciatore, an authentic Italian-style rabbit stew, as a nod to one of Bloomington's favorite dishes from the now-closed Finch's Brasserie. Cardinal's regular menu will be available for ordering as well. Please note the eatery is carry-out only for the time being — their hours are 12:00-8:00 pm every day.

Two Sticks Bakery

While Two Sticks Bakery is closed on Easter Sunday, you can still grab your sweet treats the day before. On Saturday, the bakery will have the following available on a first-come, first-served, no pre-order basis: four-inch mini-cakes, spring sugar cookies, and mini strawberry rhubarb pies.
