The Best Mother’s Day Brunch in the Sacramento Area — Takeout Edition
Mother’s Day and brunch seem to go hand-in-hand. And while a leisurely brunch out is off the table this year (pun intended), you can still treat Mom to a special meal. Many restaurants in and around the greater Sacramento area are offering special takeout menus this Mother’s Day for curbside pickup or delivery, so you can celebrate mom while keeping social distancing mandates in place. And don’t worry — you can still get all the goodies you’d expect at a sit-down brunch, from bacon and eggs to quiche and scones. Some even have mimosas to go! But act fast — many restaurants require you to pre-order your food, and time is running out!
