Mother's Day Brunch

Still haven’t made your Mother’s Day reservations but want to spoil your Mom in style? Well if you’re like me, the un-planner, then you are most-likely scurrying around, looking for fabulous OC brunch locations. In an effort to help in your last minute search, below are a few of my favorite spots that happen to have Mother’s Day brunch menus to die for.  

The Driftwood Kitchen, Laguna Beach. Formally known as the Beach House – newly renovated and named, The Driftwood Kitchen is not only an oceanfront restaurant serving up gourmet goodies, but has a Mother’s Day Brunch Buffet full of delicious culinary cuisine. Feast on smoked Alaskan salmon, sushi, breakfast pastries, eggs benedict, omelets to order, breakfast meats and more. View menu.

The Resort at Pelican Hill: Mother’s Day Ballroom Brunch, Newport Coast. If you have some extra dough lying around, then this is definitely your Mother’s Day spot. For a whopping $120/adult you can spoil your leading lady with a luxurious chef-crafted brunch that has more gourmet food stations then you can imagine! View menu.

Still interested in this location but would rather not spend quite so much, no problem! The Resort is poppin’ with Mother’s Day celebrations at all their restaurants…even the pool! Check it out (scroll to the bottom to see all their options with brunch pricing.)

Beachcomber Café, Newport Coast. You might be noticing a beach theme here but I mean, who doesn’t love dining at the beach, especially at this little gem. Full of distinctive personality, Beachcomber Café can make any OC residents feel like they are on a mini vacation and you know what that means…cocktail time!  Bottomless champagne, a prix-fixed menu with 8 entrees to choose from and dining on (and we mean on) the beach, this is a Mother’s Day paradise. Plus it is only $44/adult, so book your reservation today. View menu.

The Capital Grille, Coast Mesa. Ok, let’s change it up and move inland to beautiful South Coast Plaza. The Capital Grille is serving an exceptional three course, prix-fixed brunch – yum! You might be thinking ching-ching but the brunch is actually reasonable, only $49/adult – who would have though?! If your mom is a carnivore with great taste – The Capital Grille is a no brainer.

Hopefully this has helped guide you on your last-minute Mother’s Day plans…now go make reservations so you can enjoy the rest of your Friday. Happy Mother’s Day!
