State College Staples To Host Slate Of Easter Brunches

If you’re staying in State College for Easter weekend and searching for fun and delicious brunches to attend with family and friends, we’ve got you covered.

Several restaurants in and around State College will host meals on Easter Sunday.

The Corner Room

The Corner Room announced it will host an Easter brunch buffet from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 31. Its buffet will offer various pastries, breads and fruits, eggs benedict, prime rib, a made-to-order omelet bar, and more.

The event is also set to have guest appearances from the Easter Bunny and an Easter egg decorating table. The buffet will cost $32 for adults and students, but $12 for children under the age of 12.
