Make the most of Easter Weekend

Easter weekend is here and you better believe there is more to do than eat chocolate eggs until you feel regret, although this is one of the best parts! Easter can be celebrated many different ways, but as long as you’re able to relax and spend some time with friends and family, you’re doing it right. Here are a few of our recommendations to help you plan your long weekend!

First Stop

Start your Easter morning off right by hopping over to Bel Café for one of their sweet and savoury treat. To help you get into the festive spirit the café’s beloved hot cross buns have returned for the perfect mid-morning or afternoon snack. If you’ve got a hankering for something extra sweet, make sure to pick up one of Bel’s delicious chocolate eggs and bunnies. As you take your first bite you’ll find yourself a pleasant surprise in each of these delightful treats, featuring almond pebbles (caramelized almonds coated in dark chocolate & cocoa powder), hot cross spiced truffles and tonka bean caramels. Treat yourself today!
