If one were to go by the restaurant offerings this weekend, one would believe that moms and brunch are inextricably locked together in some kind of culinary tradition that forever ties motherhood to mimosas and Belgian waffles. There's no arguing that brunch is a great way to show Mom that you care, but not every mom wants to eat pancakes on her special day.
For those who want options that aren't in the traditional brunch route, we've gathered a few nonbrunch Mother's Day meals in Broward and Palm Beach counties. (If you do want to go with brunch, find a list of Broward County restaurants here and a list of Palm Beach County restaurants here.) As with brunch, reservations are highly recommended for any of these meals.
