Last year Amanda wrote a great post on the best Mother’s Day brunch and dinner in Collin County. I couldn’t start our 2019 roundup without making sure you’ve seen that one. It’s full of good ideas!
And they’re all still relevant today with one exception – Bonnie Ruth’s had to close their Watters Creek location. BUT, if you’re buffet-all-the-way, the Bonnie Ruth’s in Frisco offers the very same Mother’s Day Brunch buffet. They’re also doing a Moms-Only Brunch buffet May 11, 9am-2pm for $16.95 (plus $2 mimosas and door prizes). Beat the crowds on Sunday and dine with a roomful of people who know exactly why we’re celebrating.
Before we go any farther, it must be said: Don’t forget to make a reservation whenever possible. If you’re going out for brunch on Mother’s Day, you’re gonna need one.
Ok, onto our 2019 list! We’ve included a variety of menus and vibes here, because there are lots of ways to celebrate, right?
Sixty Vines ($$, Plano)
Sixty Vines is stylish and great, and unlike its Uptown Dallas counterpart, the Plano one has parking. Say what you will about the suburbs, but you can’t deny the parking advantages. Sixty Vines offers a couple twists on pancakes and French toast, but overall this is more of a savory brunch place. Lots of shared plate options, too. MENU HERE.
Whistle Britches ($$, Plano)
Cute, colorful, and casual with a spacious outdoor patio that’s great for kids. It’s a fried chicken + biscuits kind of menu, with lots of specialty cocktails and hot or cold coffee options. Love when I can get an iced latte with my brunch. MENU HERE.
Hookline ($$, Plano)
Situated along the Boardwalk at Granite Park, Hookline’s got a nice patio and view to go with your meal. It’d be great for a big family group. This is a seafood restaurant, but it’s hard to work fish into American breakfast foods, ya know? Crab cakes and smoked salmon seems to be the extent of it; after that it’s your classic brunch fare (with a bit of Cajun influence). MENU HERE.
Toulouse ($$$, Plano)
Legacy West has a very pretty, very French brunch option for us. Everything on the menu looks good from the savory to the sweet, and the interior is seriously lovely. Maybe for a ladies-only outing? MENU HERE.
The Common Table ($$, Frisco)
Had to include this one because of their weekend Hip Hop Brunch, playing all your favorite old school faves from 10am-3pm Saturdays and Sundays. Great patio, casual vibes. The music can be a little much for people who like a quiet dining atmosphere – what I’m saying is that it might not be the place to go with aging grandparents. MENU HERE.
@nerdvana ($$, Frisco)
Wouldn’t it make for a fun family brunch to post up in a booth at Nerdvana and play video games together while you eat eggs benny and sip on one of those Bloody Marys that has a meal’s worth of accoutrements on the cocktail pick? MENU HERE.
Snug on the Square ($, McKinney)
While they don’t specifically advertise brunch, this cozy hodgepodge of a coffee shop in Historic Downtown McKinney offers breakfast sandwiches, baked goods, omelets, waffles, and more. Have a relaxed meal, then walk the square with the fam. Chrissie just wrote about how to spend the day in Downtown McKinney – it’s meant to be. MENU HERE.
Patina Green Home & Market ($$, McKinney)
This one is also on the Square and also isn’t specifically brunch, but it’s too cute to leave off the list. Gather a group of your favorite moms and have a ladies lunch, followed by an afternoon at the shops, treating yourselves all over the place. Sunday hours 11am-3pm. MENU HERE.
