We will certainly take any excuse to brunch, but there's something special about a morning meal on Mother's Day. It's not just about the summer dresses and pretty gifts, it's about coming together with close family and friends. And, of course, mimosas.
Here are a few of our favorite San Antonio restaurants dishing up something unique for holiday brunching on Sunday, May 8.
There's nothing sweeter than a trip to the Pearl Farmers Market on Mother's Day followed by a brunch at Boiler House. The decadent eatery is serving its traditional brunch menu with a few specials such as lobster pot pie, peach and white chocolate bread pudding French toast (a mouthful), and breakfast lamb eggplant cassoulet.
From 11 am to 3 pm, this King William eatery is offering a tasty brunch. Options include French toast with cheesecake butter, barbacoa tacos, peanut butter waffles with grapes three ways, eggs Benedict, and more savory dishes.
This beloved bar is the perfect place for Mother's Day for the young, hip mom. Open from 9 am to 2 pm, Liberty Bar is plating up its regular brunch menu — French toast, huevos rancheros, steel cut oats, and more — with several Mother's Day specials unveiled day of. Don't skimp on the screwdrivers and Bloody Marys.
