The Best Mother’s Day Brunch Spots in Collin County

Best Mother's Day brunch in Collin CountyA few years ago, Amanda wrote a fantastic post on the best Mother’s Day brunch and dinner in Collin County. I couldn’t start this year’s roundup without making sure you’ve seen that one—it’s full of great spots! And I’ve updated her list for 2022, so all the details are current.

Now, before we go any further, it must be said: Don’t forget to make a reservation! If you’re going out for brunch on Mother’s Day, you’re gonna need one.

Ok, on to our list. We’ve included a variety of menus and vibes here, because there are lots of ways to celebrate, right?

Layered | McKinney

It’s always fun to dine in the heart of Historic Downtown McKinney. Enjoy a casual meal, then walk the square with the fam. Layered is a cozy, cute spot (exposed brick, etc.), and they have a robot server delivering food to the tables, which the kids will be obsessed with. If you have a sweet tooth, be sure to get yourself a Liège waffle on the side. 

(For an even more low-key outing, grab kolaches or build your own breakfast sandwich to go with a specialty coffee at Snug on the Square.)

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.

Ebb & Flow | Plano

Here’s another Dallas original with a great Plano version. Come for the hanging flowers and cool design elements, stay for the popular (largely savory) brunch. Try the Cubano Egg Rolls! MENU HERE.

Whistle Britches | Plano

Cute, colorful, and casual with an outdoor patio that’s adjacent to a courtyard at Willow Bend Mall (i.e., 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.

The Biscuit Bar | Plano

Situated along The Boardwalk at Granite Park, The Biscuit Bar has that open-air setup we love these days. And the whole area is great for families, as you know. It’s a popular spot, so a line can form pretty quickly, but it moves fast. MENU HERE.

(If you aren’t interested in waiting in any kind of line on Mother’s Day, fair enough! Also on The Boardwalk, Fork & Fire or Edith’s French Bistro would be wonderful choices.)

Toulouse | Plano

Legacy West has a very pretty, very French brunch option for us. Everything on the menu is mouthwatering, from the savory to the sweet, and the interior is seriously lovely. Not such a child-friendly place, so maybe make it a moms-only meal? MENU HERE.

Bulla Gastrobar | Plano

One of the newer editions to Legacy West, Bulla Gastrobar will have a Spanish-inspired 3-course prix fixe brunch for Mother’s Day ($29 per person). Serrano ham croquettes, anyone? MENU HERE.

Fairview Farmers | Fairview

Here’s another “hot and new” spot for ya: Fairview Farmers focuses on organic, high quality, local ingredients. They hit all the brunch-y highlights you crave, and I love that they do brunch shareables like croissant beignets and a pancake flight(!). MENU HERE.

J. Theodore | Frisco

This place opened where Bonnie Ruth’s in Frisco used to be. Chill on the lovely patio as you enjoy a delicious brunch menu featuring fun cocktails and a wide range of dishes (salmon & bagel board, breakfast tacos, chicken & waffles, all sorts of eggs Benedict). Note: They have a DJ during brunch, so don’t expect quiet dining. MENU HERE.

Barney’s Brunch House | Frisco

Barney’s might not have the high-concept interior design of some of the other places on this list, but their brunch stands on its own. It’s LITERALLY in the name. And they’ve won readers’ choice for “Best Brunch” in The Dallas Morning News. Our advice? Get a pancake sampler and do a taste test with your group! MENU HERE.

Katie grew up in Dallas, got married and had two kids in Austin, and currently lives in Fort Worth, which is quite fun and a great place for families. She's horrible at social media but secretly likes Twitter best. Favorite uses for her phone: reading library books and listening to comedy podcasts. Least favorite uses: making and receiving calls. If you've seen Death Becomes Her or Big Business more than once, you'll be best friends.
