With Mother’s Day just weeks away on May 14, we’re thinking of ways to pamper our mums — the undisputed VVIPs of our households. While we already have a few gift ideas in mind, some of us have yet to make our reservations for a grand feast with these special and extremely important women in our lives.
Since the occasion falls on a Sunday, we suggest a decadent brunch at a stylish restaurant. It ticks all the right boxes: We all get to sleep in till late, save ourselves the hassle of making breakfast, and spend a leisurely few hours wolfing down delicious food while catching up with mum. Add in a bottomless supply of tipple and a beautiful environment filled with the upbeat strains of live music, and we’ve got the perfect Mother’s Day celebration.
If you need some inspiration on where to go for a satisfying brunch with mum, here are 5 restaurants to consider checking out. One features music performances in a swanky setting, while another ups the ante with complimentary access to a swimming pool, so you can go for a dip right after your meal. Serving up Italian, French and even Argentine cuisines, these 5 brunch spots will make this Mother’s Day an extra memorable one for you and your queen.
