So it’s Wednesday and you still don’t have anything planned for your mom on Mother’s
Day. No big deal. It’s not like the woman gave birth to you, or sacrificed her dreams to raise you, or put up with your horrible musical skills during countless hours of piano practice, or saw you completely whiff a baseball thousands of times during little league. Feeling guilty? Here are some great options still available for Mother’s Day brunch.
For an old school Italian feel head to Club Lucky in Bucktown. They will have an all-you-can-eat-buffet with the traditional eggs, French toast, and applewood-smoked bacon, but they’ll also have their delicious, homemade cheese-filled tortellini in pesto cream sauce along with their infamous made-from-scratch desserts, and other Italian favorites.

Head south of the border at Cantina Laredo for a bit of a Mexican-fusion Mother’s Day brunch. Their brunch will include their famous French toast topped with fruits, syrup, and Mexican brandy butter along with chilaquiles, chorizo and eggs, their mango and chicken salad, among other. An addtion to their typical dessert will be the strawberry buñuelos, sugar-cinnamon dusted chips topped with fresh strawberries, vanilla ice cream, and whipped cream. Since it’s a special day there will be a complimentary mimosa or bloody Mary.
