25 Marin Restaurants Serving Mother’s Day Brunch or Dinner To Go

Flowers, jewelry, chocolate, massage certificates… the classic Mother’s Day gift bundle. None of those, however, beat brunch. The meandering lines and crowds around restaurants you witnessed your after year were not your imagination — Mother’s Day has consistently ranked as the most popular holiday for dining out. Things are different this year, but while you can’t book a bottomless Champagne party next to the green for you and mom, there are still plenty of restaurants throughout Marin offering special menus and items for pick up or delivery.
