PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Sunday is Easter and the big questions are “What is there to eat, and where shall I go?”

Elena Brennan, chair of the South Street Headhouse District, points out since the 85th annual Easter Promenade route will be from Passyunk Avenue and South Street along South Street to Headhouse Square, the restaurants will be open.

“You know, Easter’s all about eating,” Brennan says. “It’s a big brunch day.”

And a lot of restaurants are doing special Easter editions.

“They are,” Brennan says. “They’re either having three or four course meals or special menu items added just for that day.”

So Brennan highlights some restaurants along the route, like Bridget Foy’s at 2nd and South Streets.

“They have their famous blueberry ricotta pancakes,” she says.

And Ela at 3rd and South Streets.

“They have a special prix fix brunch menu, “$35 per person, Brennan says. “It starts at 10 a.m.”

Little Bird Bakery will be selling their special Easter Bread.

“This is a special brioche braided bread filled with colored eggs,” Brennan says.

And Sweet Life Bake Shop is offering something special, too.

“You can bring the children there from 2-6 pm for Easter cupcake decorating.”

In fact, there are lots of restaurants along the Easter Parade route.

“You’ve got Brauhaus Schmidtz and Cavanaugh’s, Hungry Pigeon, Jon’s Bar and Grill, Whetstone (Tavern), Pizzeria Stella, Southwark,” Brennan says. “You can find the full list if you go to South Street Headhouse District’s Facebook page.”
