Easter Treats, Dinners and Specials on 17th Ave

Like all of the best holidays, Easter involves a lot of delicious food – from traditions like chocolate bunnies and baskets filled with other decadent treats to turkey dinner complete with all the fixings. On 17th Ave, some of your favourite businesses are bringing their take on easter traditions to the table with treats such as malted chocolate cakes, cream egg nests and Easter dinner from local restaurants. You can also find a variety of other spring-time favourites such as floral arrangements and more, so head to 17th Ave for any and all of your Easter weekend essentials. 

Ship & Anchor 

Your favourite 17th Ave pub is offering two different ways to celebrate Easter this year: if you’d rather stay home and enjoy a traditional Easter dinner with your cohort, you can pre-order dinner from the ship! This decadent meal comes complete with braised turkey, homemade stuffing, garlic mashed potatoes, butter seared brussel sprouts, yorkshire pudding and roasted gravy. You can also add on a spinach and cheddar tart, and vanilla cupcakes with mini eggs and cream cheese frosting for dessert. Alternatively, you can enjoy the beautiful spring weather we’ve been getting on the Ship and Anchor’s famous patio and enjoy specials all day, April 4th.
