Mother’s Day is always a popular day to take your special lady out for brunch, but as we well know by now, it’s difficult to get those coveted reservations. If you haven’t already made your phone calls and OpenTable visits, it’s time to get on it.

Make Reservations Now… Right Now

Elite brunching spots like the ones below require some serious planning. But if you can get a table, they’re worth it.

Casual Options

Here are some more casual places, or under the radar/up-and-comers might be a better bet, especially if you plan on winging it this Sunday.

Dupont Circle

Logan Circle

U Street Corridor

What Sayeth the Bitches?

On the verge of a mimosa meltdown? The Bitches Who Brunch have been eating their way across the city’s brunches for over a year now. Check their site for the low down on every egg and pancake spot in town. You can also hit them up on Twitter in case of emergencies at @btcheswhobrunch.

Dupont Farmers Market

And if you can’t get a reservation, or don’t want to stand in crazy lines and deal with long waits, consider hitting the Dupont Farmers Market. Go simple and pick up a scone or pain au chocolate and walk around, people watch and snap some fun photos. Or hit the market early (they open at 8:30 am) to get farm fresh eggs, quality meats from Red Apron Butchery or Eco-Friendly Farms, buttery brioche and make a simple bacon, eggs and french toast brunch for mom at home!

Happy brunching!
