Local restaurants prepare for Easter brunch

With Easter morning right around the corner, local restaurants are busy preparing for brunch.

Kevin Jakel is the general manager at Tippecanoe Place Restaurant in South Bend.

“It's about four to five times our normal Sunday business,” Jakel said.

Tippecanoe's Easter Sunday brunch is already sold out at 1000 people.

Jakel is also bringing in live bunnies for children to play with.

Peg Dalton, owner of Le Peep in South Bend, has about 200 reservations for her Easter brunch already.

“We will get hit after church services and after masses,” Dalton said.

For Le Peep, Easter brings more new than returning customers.

“It's more people that are planning ahead and having family members come in town that wouldn't come in here normally,” Dalton said.

Even chain restaurants are preparing.

David Bordelon is the general manager of Granite City.

“We're hopefully looking to do 800 to 900 brunches tomorrow,” Bordelon said.

He has received almost 500 reservations for his breakfast buffet already.
