While Mother's Day celebrations will look a little different this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, there are plenty of places offering brunch with pick-up or delivery. Whether you'll be with your mom IRL or you'll celebrate virtually, you can get some tasty bites to make her day special. Here's where to get Mother's Day brunch to-go for a stress-free meal.
Mother's Day is coming up on Sunday, May, 10, and toasting mom with mimosas (and some French toast) sounds like the perfect celebration. If you don't want the hassle of whipping up a big meal — or if you're unable to be with your mom this year due to social distancing measures in place to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus — you can look for take-out or delivery options for your mid-morning meal. You can drop off a full brunch or have it delivered to mom's house. If you're lucky enough to be quarantining with mom, it's also a great option to save you from all the work in the kitchen.
Thankfully, there are plenty of options for getting brunch to-go. Hours and participation in certain locations may vary on Mother's Day, so you'll want to call or check online to make sure whatever restaurant you choose is offering to-go options near you.
