Let’s Talk Brunch

Treat Your Mom to an Afternoon Out

When I think of the word brunch, I imagine fruity drinks, delicious breakfast foods and being surrounded by my best friends or even better - my mom. I can admit that yes, I’m a brunch girly and yes, I’m proud of it. I mean brunch is incredible! For one, you don’t have to get up super early and still can eat all the egg dishes and croissants you want. And for two, it’s a meal best served alongside your favorite company. I love treating my mom to brunch. We get all dressed up, listen to some epic music on the drive, eat the best food and have deep chats. My mom gives the best advice, and I could stay in her company for hours. 

One day in particular that we always go out for brunch is Mother’s Day. It’s a great way to kick-off the festivities and make mom feel special. As this fun filled day approaches, I thought I would share some of my favorite places to brunch in the area. These aren’t all of my favs, but I will say they made the list for a reason.


Where: 3808 W 50th St., Minneapolis

What: Cardamom donuts and French toast. Go crazy for the day and order both at Coalition, you won’t be disappointed. Oh, and add strawberries to the toast - YUM.
