Special occasions call for brunch, and Easter is no exception. If you're visiting Albuquerque on the holiday weekend, the city has plenty of options for your Sunday morning meal, often with in-season produce and locally-sourced ingredients that New Mexican cuisine is known for. While some require you to dress formally and cost a bit more, others are more casual and budget-friendly, but all the restaurants in this New Mexico city offer a taste of the American Southwest.

Be sure to call ahead as most of these restaurants require reservations well in advance for their popular holiday brunches. Additionally, many of them are offering special to-go menus in 2021 that you can pre-order and pick up to enjoy at home.
