Which restaurants are open on Easter around Michiana

Easter is a time to mark the rebirth of spring, spend time with family and, for those who observe the practice, celebrate the end of Lent and reflect on the Resurrection of Jesus. It’s also when the Easter Bunny hops into homes across the country to deliver sweet treats.

For those of us that want to skip the huge meal prep for Sunday, we’ve compiled a list of restaurants who will be serving meals during the holiday.
