Easter Brunch a Tradition at Royal Palms

Royal Palms hosted their annual Easter brunch and egg hunt in April.

Easter Sunday Brunch at the iconic Royal Palms Resort and Spa is an unforgettable experience, and this year there were two ways to celebrate.

With impressive menus created by new Executive Chef Alex Robinson, guests had the opportunity to choose from a pre-fixe, plated brunch at the resort’s signature restaurant, T. Cook’s, or a traditional Easter Buffet in an elegant ballroom setting.

In addition, resort and brunch guests were invited to participate in the Annual Easter Egg Hunt on Vernadero Lawn, where they searched for the golden egg prize that included a one-night stay.
