Time for a reality check, SA: we are T-minus two weekends from Mother's Day. On the off-chance you're like us and haven't decided how you're going to treat your mom on her big day, we've rounded up 31 eateries that are offering Mother's Day brunches that are sure to please.

Folks still planning should act fast, though, because many eateries are still not operating at 100% capacity and seating may be limited. Call your eatery of choice soon to ensure you can snag a table for you and your mom, because nothing says I've got my shit together quite like the phrase, "don't worry, mom. I made reservations."
