Egg-cellent Brunch Spots For Easter In Nassau
In the Bahamas, Good Friday and Easter Sunday are widely celebrated as opportunities to socialize, gather, and eat. Last year, we wrote about how to eat like a local with Three Delicious Bahamian Easter Traditions including island favourites like hot cross buns and fried fish but this time around we’re encouraging you to indulge in egg-cellent speciality brunch menus at local restaurants with family and friends (full disclosure: menus may or may not include actual egg dishes:)
It’s most important to note that restaurants observe the Easter Monday National Holiday (Friday is also a holiday but most places remain open) and it’s best to plan your meals accordingly– if you’re visiting Nassau over Monday, April 6th, staying on hotel property to secure your breakfast, lunch, and dinner is suggested. For many Bahamians, Monday will be spent on the public beaches for a day of sun, sea, and sand- and you’re invited to do the same!
