If you’re looking to grab a bite to eat or a cup of coffee on Easter, there are many options to choose from Sunday.
Unlike Christmas, when many major chains closed, more restaurants will be open Sunday but some will have limited hours and others may have special menus.
Most Starbucks, McDonald’s and Dunkin’ locations will be open, along with IHOP, Denny’s and Waffle House restaurants nationwide. It’s often a franchise decision whether a restaurant opens on holidays so check with your closest location before heading out.
For local restaurants, how far you’ll have to travel to find an open eatery will also vary.
