Mother's Day Brunch

Submitted by Kiki Turner on Mon, 05/06/2013 - 10:25am

From pacifiers and potty training to prom dress shopping and college tuition payments, motherhood can be stressful. Treat Mom to something special with this Mother’s Day wine country brunch. The three-course meal starts with a simple dish—like their asparagus salad—followed by decadent entrées—like the cornflake-crusted French toast. Top off the celebratory meal with a sweet-but-still-savory dessert like the banana bread pudding, served with a cinnamon gelato and walnut brittle. Bring the little ones along—kids under 12 eat for half the price. Sun 10:30 a.m.-3 p.m.
