Chew on this: your mommy went booze free for 9+ months to birth you. NINE MONTHS of sobriety! Could you survive such hell? Probably not. So, don’t you think you owe her? Don’t you think its time you made it up to her with some delicious food and tons of breakfast booze in a classed up setting? The answer to all of this is: Mother’s Day Champagne Brunch.
If you still need a reservation for Sunday, here are some options to help ya out:
Border Grill (Downtown & Santa Monica): Starting at 11am, $34 ‘unlimited small plates’ brunch. Taste the rainbow of breakfast options at Border Grill as you work your way through each and every small-plate on the menu. Featured items include shrimp+grits, a frittata tart, Chilaquiles, Yucatan Eggs Benny, and Churro Tots. For those visiting the downtown location: you can score FREE bottomless mimosas for your mommy with brunch if you mention downtownla.com (if you want to join mommy in her boozin, you’ll have to fork over some extra cash.
Engine Co. No. 28 (Downtown): 11am – 3pm, $45 brunch + $10 bottomless mimosas & bottomless bloody marys.
Grand Cafe at The Omni Hotel (Downtown): 10am – 3pm, $45 brunch buffet with a selection of breakfast foods as well as more hearty options (i.e. big slabs of meat carved straight from the source.) PssT: You can score free bottomless mimosas too if you mention downtownla.com
Chaya (Downtown, Beverly Hills, Venice): 11am – 3pm, $42 three-course brunch. All three LA locations are offering this deal, which also includes bottomless bubbly & mimosas. No menu posted online yet, but since its from Chaya we’re sure it will be yummy.
Vermont (Los Feliz): All you can eat brunch buffet for $25, bottomless mimosas for $16. Pretty patio spot if the weather is nice.
Public Kitchen (Hollywood): 10am – 3pm, $38 brunch buffet. The flyer mentions an oyster bar, charcuterie station, carving station, omelet station, and waffle bar. They also mention a bloody mary bar, which makes us curious – might those be bottomless bloodies? Or are they going to tack on an additional fee for those cocktails? We were too lazy to confirm the details on this one, so if someone wants to clarify the vague and potentially misleading flyer – by all means please do.
Berri’s Cafe (Mid City): Starting at 9am, $29 mimosa brunch buffet. The menu isn’t the most extensive (just 13 items) but the price is cheap and the dishes still sound delectable (red velvet pancakes are calling our names!)
Blu Jam Cafe (Mid City – Melrose): Standard breakfast menu and hours, but with a little perk for mommy: free bubbly & dessert bites.
Della Terra (Mid City): standard menu, standard bottomless mimosa deal. Pretty patio, good food, great option without all the price-premium and fuss.
Asia de Cuba (West Hollywood): 11am – 4pm, $42 prix fixe brunch with bottomless breakfast cocktails. The booze selection includes mimosas, mojitos (love it!) and bloody marys. The food story will be pastries to start, your choice of entree from the brunch menu, and a selection of desserts to finish it off on a sweet note.
Dominick’s (West Hollywood): No fancy buffet or special menu here, just the standard delicious breakfast entrees. Oh, and the lovely perk of $12 bottles of bubbly.
Caulfield’s (Beverly Hills): $60 3-course brunch with unlimited blood orange mimosas. Brunch starts off with a smoked salmon toast point, moves into your choice of entree (pancakes, steak and eggs, salmon, french toast or eggs benny), then finishes off with your choice of key lime pie or flourless chocolate cake. Plus a special gift for your mom: homemade caramels.
K-ZO (Culver City): Noon – 4pm, special happy hour menu + $10 bottomless mimosas. Not your standard brunch, but some cheap sushi & bottomless bubbly for $10 will certainly make many moms happy.
