This is a safe space for those who dearly love a mom, but maybe didn’t think ahead to book a reservation for Sunday. It’s the busiest day after Valentine’s in the restaurant business and most of the plumb seats at the hottest new brunch restaurants were reserved weeks ago. That’s okay, because there are still several places to take that special lady for a delicious meal to celebrate all the hard work she does without her ever being the wiser that this wasn’t a belabored decision.

Here are the best Mother’s Day brunch reservations, listed in geographical order in hoping there’s one near mom’s place.

Steven Brown’s seminal Linden Hills restaurant still has reservations for Mother’s Day - which is bonkers considering this is a hot seat to grab on even a regular weekend. Slide in for kiddie meals that keep young ones occupied (a promise of a trip to nearby Wild Rumpus books helps) Order up the out-of-this-world waffles and toast mom with a superb glass of wine.

Hell's Kitchen Inc.

Take mom downstairs downtown to a Minneapolis brunch classic: Hell’s Kitchen. The tongue-in-cheek hellscape humor and Ralph Stedman art might not appeal to every mom, but it’s impossible not to be beguiled by those lemon ricotta pancakes. Don’t miss the oddly named, but delicious sausage bread with the famous house-made peanut butter.

Shockingly, there are still tables available in this gorgeous dining room for Mother’s Day brunch. Split a trio of Dutch Babies with mom and enjoy the floor show: all the chefs cooking entirely over the 20 foot hearth at the center of the room.

Revival

This one takes a bit of a leap of faith: they don’t take reservations. However, Revival St. Paul serves the holy brunch duo of chicken and waffles starting at 11:00 pm on Sunday. Download the No Wait app to check in on how long lines are before heading in. The Selby Avenue location also has a full bar - that’s what really makes it a holiday.

Parlour St. Paul

For every missed curfew, smart mouth comment, and day without a call Mom has more than earned a Parlour burger. Treat her to one or some curried scrambled eggs with crab at the Saint Paul location.

Meritage

One of the most elegant brunch spots in the Twin Cities, it’s hard to believe there are still spots left. This French bistro serves swoon-worthy omelets in a regal atmosphere. Don’t skip the bubbly cocktails or shellfish treats from the raw bar.

One of the best restaurants in the Twin Cities still has brunch room. Mom’s will swoon at owner Tim Niver’s hospitality and you will love the adult beverage selection. Chef Adam Eaton can make even the most low brow foods taste and look like high art, just try the fried bologna sandwich with an egg on top.
