Mother’s Day Brunch in Glendale
There is a lot to do in Glendale on Mother’s day. Take a drive (or stroll) through the original Forest Lawn. World famous art, sculpture and stain glass, as well as stunning views, made Forest Lawn a popular tourist destination well before Michael Jackson and Elizabeth Taylor were buried here. The Americana at Brand is another special spot- enjoy window (or actual) shopping or simply enjoy the Bellagio style fountain show or take a trolly ride around the grounds.
Celebrity chef Michael Mina is creating quite the fabulous Mother’s Day Brunch. For a set $65 you enjoy three courses like a starter of pork belly and quail egg, a main of Lobster Benedict and a desert of Riccota Doughnuts. Reservations are necessary, but as of this moment, there is good availability for 4 around 11 AM.

Mother’s Day in Montrose
Perhaps you like a more relaxed Mother’s day that involves a casual brunch and a little strolling through the Montrose Harvest Market. Gios, Berolina’s and etc. have casual pastries and light breakfast options. For a more extensive brunch experience, check out these Montrose favorites!
The original Montrose breakfast spot. The Black Cow Cafe has been serving coffee drinks, bakery favorites and savory dishes for as long as I can remember. Their corn flake crusted French Toast is amazing and I am a fan of their Southern Baked Skillet. The Black Cow opens at 9 AM and there is a healthy line by 10:30 AM.
