Where to Get Your Easter Brunch On in Marin

Here are our top picks for an eggscellent meal this holiday.



With Spring finally here, there’s no better time to treat yourself to brunch, preferably al fresco to partake in the natural beauty of Marin.

Poggio

Located in charming downtown Sausalito with views of the harbor, Poggio is serving up Easter specials such as Liege-style waffles with fresh berries, seasonally-inspired frittatas and asparagus Milanese featuring fresh asparagus and prosciutto topped with a fried egg. For something a bit heartier, try the braised lamb shank. Drink specials include Mr. Rabbit’s Punch with sherry, Aperol, ginger beer and lemon juice or the Carrot Top, with bourbon, Amaro, carrot juice and cumin. Accepts reservations.

Station House Café

Combine a picturesque Sunday drive with Easter brunch and head out to charming Point Reyes Station, where you will find local farm-to-table fare at the Station House Café. Brunch specialties include Eggs Benedict (including a special salmon version of this dish on Easter), the Hangtown Fry with fried oysters, housemade granola and the café’s popular bread pudding, along with live music. If the weather cooperates, grab a table on the garden patio and enjoy a glass of orange blossom sparkling mead from Point Reyes’ own Heidrun Meadery. Accepts reservations.
