BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Mother’s Day always finds time to sneak up on you.
If you plan on celebrating your mom this weekend, but can not find the exact way, here are a few options to help you show your mom you appreciate her.
While there may be many lines for dinner at some places, here are a few restaurants to keep on your radar for a possible Mother’s Day brunch.
Brunch has become popular in the last year. Many restaurants have incorporated longer breakfast hours or separate brunch menus to accommodate the mid-breakfast, early lunch eaters.
Chez Lulu in Mountain Brook is a quaint cafe with many menu items under $10. You can find soups, fresh baked goods and more on their menu. It’s located on Cahaba Road and is open from 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. on Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Sundays.
Klingler’s Cafe is located in Vestavia Hills. This is another cafe with a large, affordable breakfast menu. On Saturdays, they are open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Here’s a restaurant that’s relatively new to Birmingham. Mile End Delicatessen is located near Railroad Park on 1st Avenue South. The restaurant features Jewish comfort food, mimosas, and pastries.
Sunday is not the only day to celebrate Mother’s Day.
K & J’s Elegant Pastries will have a special for Friday and Saturday for mothers. The popular dessert shop is known for its extravagant milkshakes.
“If you come into our store on Friday or Saturday and bring your mom in, you’ll receive $2 off any colossal milkshake,” Krystal Bryant said.
There will also be a cupcake special: buy four, get two free. The specials only apply to in-store purchases.
Pepper Place is also doing something special for moms. And it’s totally free. On May 9, 10, and 11, you can sign up online to reserve a time to come in and have a professional photograph taken with your mom (or if you are a mom, with your kids) at their Mother’s Day photobooth.
The studio is located in the parking lot in the extension of the Dr. Pepper building. Click here to reserve a slot. Saturday photobooth sessions do not require signup, it’s first-come, first-serve.
If going out is not for you, Mother’s Day can also be spent sleeping in and catching up on some much-needed sleep. Or perhaps a bed and breakfast.
