The 2023 Easter Brunch Menu at Rosen Center Orlando Easter is in April this year. Yay!  It's April 9th, 2023 to be exact, and Café Gauguin in the Rosen Center, Orlando is hosting a pretty big Easter Brunch Buffet spread.

Let's see if we can unpack some of the details before looking at the menu… the Brunch takes place on April 9th, 2023 and there's seating available from 11:00am - 4:30pm. There's a couple different prices though… if you make a reservation and pre-pay, it's $58.95 (plus tax, plus service fee) per adult, children 4-12 are $24.95 (plus tax, plus service fee), and children 3 and under are free.

However, if you make a reservation and choose to pay in-person, on Easter Sunday (or don't make a reservation, and just try to walk-up to the restaurant) that adult price rises to $65.05 per person (plus tax, plus service fee) … and the children's prices remain the same. Interesting.

Self-parking is free and Valet Parking is discounted to $15. Reservations are highly recommended, and if there's six or more people in your party… reservations are actually required. A credit card is required to hold reservations for all party sizes.

Champagne and Mimosas are bottomless (aka "unlimited"). Sorry if that felt like an abrupt change in my narrative, but I didn't want to burry one of the main perks. There's nothing quite as fun as a brunch with bottomless mimosas.

Café Gauguin is normally a buffet style restaurant, with plenty of seating and this Easter Brunch event is no exception. Let's take a look at the menu for the 2023 Easter Brunch Buffet

Like most dining events at the Rosen Center, I have the hardest time actually finding any way to buy tickets for them online. There's generally a micro-site or web page just for the event, with a "make reservation" button — which simply takes you to an "Open Table" booking system for normal dining and not specifically the Easter Brunch event.

I do however, have a phone number for this one. It's (407) 996-3969. I'm not sure if that's the hotel concierge, or a "dining reservations" hotline, but that's the only official number I have!  If anyone happens to find a direct link to tickets or reservations to this specific event online… please let us know!
