15 Delicious Mother’s Day Brunch Ideas You’ll Both Love

Want to treat mom like the royalty that she is with a special meal? Check out these 15 perfect Mother’s Day brunch ideas that you’ll both love!

If you’re looking for amazing Mother’s Day brunch ideas that you and your mom will both love, I’ve got you covered. After all, it’s your special day, too! I’ve always wondered, why brunch? Seriously! Haven’t you? What made brunch the official meal of Mother’s Day? I suppose it makes sense, though. It’s kind of a magical meal. A mash-up of breakfast and lunch, a combination of sweet, syrupy pancakes and sturdy, savory sandwiches. It’s kind of like a mom!

Okay, maybe I’m reaching. Reading into it. I do that sometimes. Maybe we picked brunch as the Mother’s Day meal because we just want to spend time with our moms earlier in the day (but not so early that we have to get out of bed at 7 AM for a breakfast date)! Whatever the reason, brunch it is. Read on for a few of our favorite tasty ideas for a magical Mother’s Day brunch at home!

  1. I’ve never made pancakes that were flavored. I’ve always made plain ones and then added the flavors on top, but those maple brown sugar ones have me quite intrigued. Perhaps I need to cook them! :)

  2. These are all such delicious recipes and pictures! I sent this post to my Husband in case they needed ideas ;)

  3. All these makes me hungry. I’m a sucker for dessert and I could eat these all day. I’m curious to try the mango spring rolls and the fruit pizza. Very unique!

  4. Travel Blogger

    So many delicious options! I would love a dessert pizza and maybe that coffee smoothie! Yum! I will have to tell my husband I want breakfast in bed, and place my order the night before.
