Perfect for Mother's Day
Guide By Kelly Pullin
Taking mom, or a special mother-figure, out for a special meal (whether it's brunch, lunch, or dinner) has become one of the most popular ways to celebrate Mother's Day – especially after years of celebrating over Zoom during the pandemic.
Sitting down together for a meal is the perfect way to create memories together and bond over an indulgent dessert, or a pitcher of mimosas. (Plus it's a great way to treat her without being stuck doing the dishes afterwards.)

Here's our guide to restaurants on the inKind platform that are perfect for a Mother's Day celebration. These selections either specialize in brunch, also sell flowers and gifts, or have just the right ambiance that mom will love. Be sure to book soon to snag the perfect table – whether you're an outdoor dining aficionado or prefer a warm & cozy dining room.
