Ann Arbor Mother’s Day Brunches

Some options for Mother’s Day Brunch that aren’t included in events above:

  • Polo Fields
  • Gandy Dancer – reservations seem to be sold out for brunch.
  • Weber’s Restaurant – reservations seem to be gone.
  • Kensington Hotel usually has one but has not announced the last time I checked. They are focused on UM Graduation. Look for an announcement next week, but they may take reservations if you call.

Our Ann Arbor Mother’s Day Brunch Experiences

It has been many years since we went out for Mother’s Day Brunch. My niece birthday is near Mother’s Day.

One of my favorite Ann Arbor brunches is Gandy Dancer. I definitely recommend their brunch if they are not booked solid. A few years ago we had Mother’s Day brunch at Gandy Dancer. We made our reservation late and were seated in the tent. We had brunch there for my daughter’s first Easter (in 2006).

Ann Arbor Easter Brunch at Gandy Dancer

We had Mother’s Day brunch at the Kensington Hotel at their Relish Restaurant in 2017. We definitely enjoyed our brunch. Although we were at a huge table for just the 3 of us. My parents were supposed to join us, but my niece decided to arrive the day before. This year we’ll be celebrating her first birthday on Mother’s Day.

In 2015 our Mother’s Day brunch was at the Eagle Crest Marriott. Rather than continuous reservations, they offer several seating times when they change over the entire restaurant. We enjoyed our brunch on Mother’s Day. We returned for Valentine’s Day brunch last year which happened to be on a Sunday. Unfortunately, they were not prepared for a Valentine’s Day rush since it does not usually fall on a Saturday. Despite this experience, I would return for a holiday or a regular Sunday brunch.

We’ve also had brunch at Weber’s, but I think it was their regular Sunday brunch buffet and not a holiday buffet. I would expect the holiday buffet to be expanded from a regular Sunday buffet.

  1. The Weber’s holiday brunches are typically less choices than their regular Sunday brunch, unfortunately. They also got rid of the eggs Benedict on the brunch line which is a real bummer
