Your mom’s been through a lot: She did your laundry, got through those angsty teen years and probably even let you control the car’s radio without batting an eye, even when all you did was blast boy bands for hours on end. And while a brunch won't completely compensate for all those years of emotional labor, you can still show her you’re really, truly thankful for all of that with a meal to end all meals from one of L.A.’s best brunch restaurants. With $1 “mamamosas,” endless rosé, seaside eggs Benedicts and fresh-bakes pastries, these Mother’s Day brunch specials around town are the perfect way to say “I love you.” Whether she’s looking for something cozy and low-key or decadent and classy, here’s where to find the best Mother’s Day specials around L.A. this year.

Restaurants, Italian


icon-location-pin Atwater Village

What: Atwater’s charming Italian stalwart is hosting one of the best deals around this weekend—especially if your mom’s expecting a little bubbly. Find $5 bottles of rosé all day, plus $5 bottomless mimosas all through brunch. Talk about a steal. Of course, you’ll need to be dining to offset all those libations, and we can’t think of much better a way to soak up that alcohol than with bowls of All’Acqua’s pasta or specials like the Italian sausage sandwich with whipped ricotta and sautéed peppers and onions.
