Baldoria

Baldoria

What: Head to Little Tokyo for a prix fixe that not only includes dishes such as ciabatta French toast, poached-pear salad, wood-fired pizzas and chicken-and-waffle tacos—it also includes bottomless mimosas or rosé. But wait, there’s more: Baldoria’s going even further with the Mother’s Day revelry, because what mom doesn’t want a sweet end to brunch? At the close of the meal, moms get to choose between a free glass of wine or complimentary ricotta cheesecake. And hey—at $32 apiece, this is also one of the holiday’s best brunch deals in L.A.

Bourbon Steak

Bourbon Steak

What: This year, treat your mama to a springy steakhouse brunch at Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak.

Feel like splurging? The menu offers a slew of upgrades, whether you’re looking for rack of lamb, an Alaska king crab Louie, or some lobster pot pie.

Café Birdie

Café Birdie

What: The beloved Highland Park hot spot is offering its reliable menu of brunch faves—polenta Benedicts, ricotta toast, Moroccan-spiced Fried chicken and many others—as well as two Mother’s Day specials.

Take a stroll down Figueroa and pop into a few neighborhood shops or a movie afterward, for best results.
