Where to Eat for Easter in Portland

Brunches, dinners, and even a teatime for the Sunday holiday

View as Map

While Portland isn’t the biggest town for religious holidays — less than 20 percent of Portlanders identify as ‘very religious’ — any excuse for a large meal is usually fair game. So April 1, Portland’s restaurants will likely garner crowds of brunch lovers for Benedicts, ham, and in some cases, rabbit (don’t tell the kids). From posh Easter teatime with macarons and quail eggs to celebratory four-course dinners with roasted leg of lamb, here’s where to find a dreamy Easter meal from breakfast to dinner.
This list is not ranked, but rather organized geographically.
