Sacramento Mother’s Day Spots


There are countless ways to celebrate Mom this weekend: brunch, flowers, a handwritten card, you name it. Being in a city like Sacramento is a blessing and a curse because there are just so many fantastic options to choose from, it can be a little overwhelming at times. To help you choose, the SacFoodies asked for a little inspiration from the rest of the team here at FleishmanHillard Sacramento.

Jessi: This year I’m taking my Mom to Fox and Goose for brunch! My family is British, and the authentic UK fare at this pub is a welcome reminder of home. You can’t go wrong with the Full English Breakfast with eggs, British bangers, and baked beans.

Amanda: I’ll be sharing Mai Tais with my mom on the beach in Maui! **Pro-Tip** If you can’t quite make the trip to Hawaii, a cocktail from Jungle Bird is a great option!

Liz: I’m taking my mom for a Mother’s Day lunch to Lucca. I haven’t been there in years, but I love their outdoor seating area and thought it would be perfect for Sunday – just the right mix of a casual setting yet upscale food. And also hopefully not quite as crowded as some other spots around town!

Laurel: I love buying Full Belly Farm flower bouquets from the Sacramento Co-op as Mother’s Day gifts! They’re seasonal, local and absolutely beautiful. Usually you can find a variety of sizes and color options depending on what Mom loves, so it’s a great choice for Mother’s Day. You can also find succulents from @thepricklypear in the same section of the Co-op, and the little Bell jars they come in are adorable. If you or your Mom have allergies, a little succulent can be a great alternate.

Alexa: I actually won’t be with my mom this Mother’s Day (sad!) but if I were, I’d take her to my fave brunch spot, Pushkin’s Restaurant.

Harrison: This year, I got my mom a wine opener! **Pro-Tip** Take your mom for a glass of wine at Revolution! They do amazing wine flights and have a special brunch menu on Sunday.

Tricia: My brother made my mom a garden cart for her new garden and we (the whole fam and our sig. others) plan on spending the weekend painting it into a custom piece of art so every time she uses it, she will have a wonderful memory attached to it. **Pro-Tip** For the less artistic gardeners, The Plant Foundry has beautiful gift’s for mom and her garden.

Vanessa: I’m making brunch for my mom! But my plan is to make two breakfast casseroles the night before, chill overnight, bake in the morning and enjoy so I’m not having to (really) cook on Mother’s Day. I’ve chosen two recipes, one sweet and one savory, from Taste of Home: Overnight Asparagus Strata and Bananas Foster French Toast.

Shelly: Definitely feeling the love this Mother’s Day weekend. Flowers arrived from my boys yesterday, and there is a rumor of some fun plans for the weekend. I’m not sure what they have in store, but anything will be great…as long as there are waffles. Rumor is  Meadowlands in Sloughhouse has the best brunch around. Hint. Hint.

Cheyenne: My mom and I both have a love for a good mimosa! Our favorite place to grab mimosas and brunch is Cafeteria 15L. A table on the patio, enjoying the fresh air and yummy food is how we plan on spending Mother’s Day.
