Thanks. I also plan on attending mass at The Blessed Sacrament Cathedral. Has anyone been there for Easter mass? Do you have to get there EXTREMELY early?

I attend Easter Sunday Mass at Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament. You don't have to get there extremely early... last year we had plenty of seats available even after the start of Mass. However, in the Catholic faith (I believe) it is extremely rude to enter Mass after it has begun. Besides, you don't want to miss the pomp and circumstance of when Cardinal Maida makes the procession at the start of Mass. It truly is a beautiful service. Plenty of parking, plenty of space. Hope to see ya there! :-)

Avoid the Roostertail. I went last year for Mothers Day Brunch, it was a DISASTER.

it may be somewhat rude to come in late, but as my dad used to say- better than not coming in at all. Plus coming in late usually meant sitting on the aisle and were one of the first to get out. Seen one entry procession- seen them all! Just different color frocks. (as you can tell-im classified as a lapse Catholic- though more than 2x year Catholic)

Thru much trial and error, my family has come to the conclusion that Easter Brunches are very overrated and over-priced. Our solution became "Chalupa Easter"....we go Mexican and we go early. Screw the ham ! Rarely a crowd, and the food is great. Yes, we are an anglo-saxon family doing our part to embrace and celebrate a more diverse America.

I would recommend if you go anywhere downtown -- Gem, Sweet Georgia Brown, Fishbones, etc. - that you make reservations ASAP.

The Gem does a great job -- we go for mother's day every year.

Brunch with Bach at the Detroit Institute of Arts is always a great way to celebrate an Easter Brunch with seating beginning promptly at 11:30 A.M.

If you you time it right with Easter Sunday Mass at Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament you can have an all Detroit memorable Easter Sunday all along the "Heart of Detroit" Woodward Ave.

Here's a link to the brunch for this Easter Sunday's program at the DIA:

It's just that when you get a few drinks in you, you get all handsy. Doesn't look good in the Isle of Yap.

The Whitney sunday brunch is an excellent way to experience the place. It's more expensive than your usual hotel sunday brunch, it's not a buffet, and there is no omlet station (all points in it's favor for me), but it's a reletively inexpensive date at the Whit. Call way ahead for reservations, it fills up early

I promise to wipe the oatmeal off my chin, get a haircut and beard trim, keep my hands out of my pants or anyone elses and to smile if anyone tells a joke if I get invited to the DAC for brunch!

I do not think they have a buffet or ahything, but the breakfest selections at Twingo's are GREAT. Also, they have patio seating, which was so nice yesterday afternoon!!

If you have not eaten there yet, breakfast, lunch or dinner, you MUST check it out!
