Affordable Brunch for Easter in Raleigh-Durham Area of North Carolina

Give yourself a break from cooking every holiday. The Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina has restaurants you and your family can eat a delightful brunch at an affordable price. Listed below are five kid-friendly restaurants to choose from.

The Flying Biscuit Cafe

Located at 2016 Clark Avenue in Cameron Village. Flying Biscuit is a colorful laid-back restaurant. Guests can choose patio seating, the bar area, or the main dining room for their meal. Don’t worry about the time you arrive. Breakfast is served all day. Sweeten your coffee with old fashioned sugar cubes and, choose my favorite dish, the orange scented french toast with thick sliced whole wheat bread that is topped with raspberry sauce and honey crème anglaise. While you wait for your meal, enjoy delicious homemade biscuits and grape jelly. My first choice sides are home fries or the cream grits made with cheese. If you must have a cocktail, The Flying Biscuit has mini martinis for only $3. You could also choose a mimosa. The average meal costs around $6-15.

Parker and Otis

112 Duke Street, Durham, NC. Parker and Otis is a restaurant with a gift shop which makes it great for out-of-towners. There are even toys in the specialty store for your kids, and a variety of other items tourists love. The restaurant has a huge outdoor deck seating and a coffee bar for its guests. Those that leave Parker and Otis brag to their friends about the sandwiches, coffee, and desert. The cost of brunch would be in the $5-12 price range.

Mimi’s Café

1115 Walnut Street, Cary, NC (near Cary Towne Center); 6320 Plantation Center Drive, Raleigh, NC (near Triangle Town Center). Mimi’s Café may have wait, but it will be well worth it. The restaurant’s French atmosphere will make you feel right at home and the staff is very professional. Mimi’s Café offers their first time guests a large muffin. Your waiter probably won’t mention it, so you may have to bring it up first. The price range is $8-20.


There are five Brigs in the Raleigh-Durham area. Brig’s offers a relaxed guests atmosphere. You can take off your new Easter dress and get comfortable in sweats and t-shirt at Brig’s. If your appetite isn’t too big, you can easily get full off a couple of sides at Brig’s which is totally normal. The restaurant only offers table seating (no booths). The dine-in meals for kids include a free beverage, and Free Brunch on Your Birthday if you sign up online. The price range is $3-10.

The Brunch Box

1090 Chapel Hill Rd Suite 120, Morrisville, NC . This family ran business is new to the area and has very reasonable prices. At the Brunch Box, you order your food and then find a seat. The restaurant is well known for its delicious breakfast sandwiches. I recommend trying the avocado chicken sandwich. It’s a hit. The restaurant wants you to BYOB. I’m totally kidding, kind of. At Brig’s you can BYOBreakfast or BYOLunch (Build Your Own…not Bring Your Own Beer). The price range is $2-10.
