It isn’t really Easter unless you’ve eaten copious amounts hot cross buns before Easter actually arrives, right? But if you happen to be sick of the good ol’ hot cross bun, we’ve got a list of Easter-inspired food and drinks that you might want to get behind in the lead up to the long weekend!
Hot Cross Bagels
Our good friends at The Beigelry only bring out this delightful creation once a year, but it’s definitely worth the wait.
Hot Cross Bun Chocolate
Crunchy hot cross buns smothered in butter with Riverland grown orange peels and Organic Aussie grown sultanas all encased in 40% Ghana milk chocolate.. talk about yum! Head into East End Cellars to grab some now.
Easter Egg Stout
Beer taps to desserts! Think, Dark Chocolate Ale, Vanilla & Peanut Butter Porter, Easter Egg Stout, Marshmallow Stout and more. Happening all long weekend at the Gilbert Street Hotel. More information here.
Acacia Easter Egg Coffee Blend
Kick start your Easter mornings with ONA’s Easter Egg blend (which you can find at Acacia). Coffee and chocolate, a combination to die for! As a milk-based coffee, it has a flavour like Cremé Eggs and milk chocolate.

A jaw dropping mix of creamy vanilla ice cream, Baileys, Mozart chocolate liquor and vodka, all served in an Easter egg with mini Cadbury Creme Eggs… what’s not to love? Available now at The Noble Gentleman during this Easter season. More information here.
