Happy Mother’s Day!

You can’t Spell Mimosas Without M-O-M


Let’s take that lovely lady out to brunch.

From packing lunch boxes and kissing boo boos to carting around the grandkids, moms deserve our unconditional appreciation every single day. Traditionally, the second Sunday in May is just one special day that we’ve set aside to go a little over the top with our unending admiration.

And while Mother’s Day remains one of the year’s most special holidays, our methods of celebration have become a bit stale.

Greeting cards, flowers, boxes of chocolate – they’re all fine gifts, but let’s face facts – receiving them every year probably gets a little boring. It’s simply a truth that moms everywhere wouldn’t dare ever speak. Don’t worry moms, we got your back.

This year, let’s step up that Mother’s Day game. Hold off on the the gift cards and the coffee mug you got to replace last year’s coffee mug. Instead, tell mom to put on her Sunday best because this year, you’re giving her the gift of brunch. That’s right – late morning mimosas, eggs, pastries, sandwiches. You name it, mom can have it (and you don’t have to clean up any mess).

Show mom she’s the best in the world at one of these incredible NEPA brunch spots.
