Note: Here are the 2013 Northern Michigan Easter brunch suggestions.
Northern Michigan: After the Easter eggs have been found, when jelly bean-filled basktes are opened and chocolate bunnies are tasted, it's time for Easter Sunday brunch with the family. Let someone else do the cooking this Easter and hop over to one of these Easter brunch buffets in Traverse City, Petoskey, and more.
