They say the hardest job in life is being a mom. The second hardest? Finding a gift for the most important woman in your life. If you’re at wits end about what to get mom, don’t worry. We’ve rounded up the best Mother’s Day brunches at our favorite local restaurants. Mother’s Day is fast approaching so book your brunch before its too late.

The Spotted Horse Tavern

26 Church Ln, Westport, CT 06880 (203) 557-9393

Housed in Westport’s historic Sherwood House, The Spotted Horse Tavern is the perfect neighborhood spot featuring a delicious brunch menu mom will love. We recommend the Apple Pie French Toast with sliced brioche bread topped with cinnamon apples, caramel, Chantilly cream, vanilla streusel. Or the frittata with scrambled eggs, roasted tomatoes, asparagus, exotic mushrooms, melted gouda and basil-pesto sauce served with an English muffin and turkey bacon potato hash.

L’escale Restaurant

500 Steamboat Rd, Greenwich, CT 06830 (203) 661-9800

Located in the Delmar Hotel on the Greenwich Harbor, L’escale is both elegant and stylish. With extensive outdoor seating along the hotel’s 500 feet of dock, the restaurant boasts one of Fairfield County’s most delectable menus. Choose from its assortment of homemade granola, muffins, and croissants. Or it’s many omelet combinations and to-die-for side dishes.

The Chelsea

12 Unquowa Pl, Fairfield, CT 06824 (203) 254-8200

While the vibe at The Chelsea is causal, the food is anything but. Described as a collision of classic and contemporary, this modern barn-style restaurant has an uniquely delicious brunch menu that’s more than meets the eye. We recommend the tempura fried waffles or their modern twist on the classic steak and eggs featuring char-grilled rib eye, custard eggs, bacon-onion hash and a brown butter béarnaise.

Elm Restaurant

73 Elm St, New Canaan, CT 06840 (203) 920-4994

Located in the heart of New Canaan, The elm restaurant embodies the true charm of Connecticut. With the motto “rooted in tradition and inspired by the season,” the restaurant uses only the freshest local ingredients to make its delicious breakfast dishes. We particularly like the banana pancakes with candied pecans or the Jonah crab eggs benedict with beet greens and meyer lemon hollandaise. Whatever mom chooses, it’s sure to put a smile on her face.

Olio Restaurant

934 Hope St, Stamford, CT 06907 (203) 817-0303

If you’re looking for a casual neighborhood dining experience with a twist than look no further than Olio Restaurant on Hope Street in Stamford. It doesn’t get any better than homemade sauces, pastas, breads and pastries. We recommend the egg in a hole with shaved grana padana, truffle oil roasted plum tomatoes, and black pepper pancetta chips or the grilled shrimp with shaved fennel, red onion, oranges, basil, mixed greens and a sherry vinaigrette.
