Coming up with the ultimate Mother’s Day gift can be a high-pressure task: What do you get the woman who deserves a palace on a private island? Sometimes the most thoughtful gift is something unexpectedly simple, like making Mom happy-cry with a heartfelt Mother’s Day poem and treating her to a special Mother’s Day brunch.

If you like the sound of Mother’s Day brunch (and who doesn’t?), then you need a reservation STAT. Luckily, restaurant booking site OpenTable released its list of the 100 Best Brunch Spots in America for 2019—including splurge-worthy restaurants and neighbor staples—just in time to celebrate.

OpenTable combed through more than 12 million verified diner reviews of over 30,000 restaurants across all 50 states, whittling the list down to the best 100 eateries offering an exceptional brunch experience. This comprehensive brunch roundup includes a wide variety of hotspots in 24 states and Washington D.C.—and it looks like California is home to the largest number of winners on the list (16), followed by New York (12), Illinois (8), and Pennsylvania (8).
