How lucky is your mom to live in a city like Los Angeles with an endless supply of sunny days and trendy restaurants made for brunching?  While Sundays at the local farmer’s market are always fun, sometimes it’s time for a day out on the town at one of LA’s best brunch spots.  Whether your mom prefers vegan cinnamon rolls or mimosas by the beach, there is something for everyone on our list. 

For the Adventurous Mom

If your mom loves trying new things, Concerto in Koreatown may be the perfect spot for your family this Mother’s Day.  Known for its fun outdoor patio and cool vibe, Concerto features Korean-Italian fusion with a huge brunch menu filled with unique items like Korean Street Toast, Kimchi Carbonara, and Hawaiian Seafood Fried Rice.  For dessert, choose between shortcakes, fruit tarts, and an impressive 20+ flavors of macaroons.

For the Low-Key Mom
Primo’s Donuts

Let’s be honest, sometimes you just want sweets for brunch and that is OK.  Established in 1956, Primo’s Donuts is a westside staple serving a scrumptious assortment of donuts and baked goods including their famous Buttermilk Bars.  What makes Primo’s Donuts a special spot?  Owner Celia Primo says, “Our bakers come in every day at 2:00 in the morning so you know the donuts are fresh.”   Whether the whole family joins for a cozy donut shop morning or you surprise mom with donuts in bed, she will not be disappointed.  Primo’s recently added a line of pastel-colored vegan donuts to the menu which are as beautiful as they are tasty.

For the Fancy Mom
Wolfgang Puck at Hotel Bel-Air

I don’t know if you can get much fancier than Hotel Bel-Air, but with a $195 pricetag for prix-fixe Mother’s Day Brunch Mom better feel loved after this lavish 3-course brunch.  Valet your car and be sure to look out for the hotel’s resident swans as you walk through the grounds.  Begin your brunch with a choice of starters like Chilled King Crab Legs, Haas Avocado and Caviar Toast, or Cinco Jotas Jamon Iberico with grilled peaches.  From there, you have a choice of ten entrees including House Cured Smoked Salmon Benedict or Steamed Halibut “Hong Kong” Style followed by an extravagant dessert bar. Sunday Brunch is available on a weekly basis with a seasonal menu.

With beautiful locations in the Arts District, Venice, and Larchmont, Café Gratitude is a bit of a mecca for flavorful plant-based cuisine and those pursuing a healthy lifestyle.  Brunch offerings include gluten-free Cinnamon Rolls and Donuts, Chia-Seed Pudding, and Chilaquiles with tempeh chorizo and cashew queso fresco and a variety of fresh-squeezed and cold-pressed juices made in-house.  If you have any vegetarians in the family, chances are you already know and love Café Gratitude.

For the Fun Mom

If your mom loves spending time by the beach, brunch at Rockefeller followed by a bike ride down the strand in Manhattan Beach is the perfect way to spend Mother’s Day.  Although kids are definitely welcome, Rockefeller is the perfect spot for an adult brunch that starts with 4 flavors of Bottomless Mimosas (guava, peach, watermelon, and orange).  As far as food goes, indulge on hearty brunch favorites like Pork Belly Benedict, Belgian Waffles, or a Lobster-Stuffed Avocado. Rockefeller has great deals throughout the week including $1 Oyster Mondays and 99 Cent Burger Tuesdays.
