Mother's Day Brunch

I love the idea of having a Mother's Day Brunch, so when it came time to create a brunch Cool Find for, I was thrilled to dig and find some picks in the Philly metro-area where families can chow down. Find the article below.

The Breakfast Club
Sunday, May 11, 2008 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM

If your crew goes wild for diner favorites, you’ll enjoy the yummy bites at Jones on Chestnut Street. Food is served from 10:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M., and casual attire will do just fine for munching on buttermilk pancakes, baked macaroni and cheese and eggs benedict at this hip eatery. For moms, an array of fun and light breakfast cocktails (with names like “morning glory” and “Jones decadent hot chocolate” are also available.

If you’re in the mood for a family fiesta, stop by the Tortilla Press in Collingswood, New Jersey. Strawberry and banana quesadillas, baby tacos and breakfast burritos abound at this Tex-Mex-influenced venue from 10:00 A.M. until 4:00 P.M. They even feature a fully stocked kids menu with classics such as silver dollar pancakes, chicken fingers and fries and French toast.

For home cooking without breaking a sweat, visit Winnie’s LeBus in Manayunk. Frittatas, artesian breads and a variety of gourmet omelets rule the roost here from 9:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. (with an array of figure-friendly salads to boot)! Also be sure to check out the countless blue plate specials being served today. Only one blue plate special is typically offered each day, but several will abound this Sunday in honor of Mother’s Day!

Those in the mood for a quiet meal will fare better at 333 Belrose in Radnor, where they can dine on a late brunch buffet of waffles, eggs of all styles and a full carving station from 12:00 P.M. until 6:00 P.M. If a little extra Mother’s Day celebrating is in order, this restaurant also offers a fantastic wine selection, from 2001 cabernet sauvignons to radiant reds from Napa Valley.

Just choose your restaurant and nosh with the entire family – it’s the best gift any mother could ask for!
