OneOneFour at Mamara Hotel

The Marmara Hotel is absolutely stunning, but they have a great restaurant and bar called OneOneFour there that is perfect for Mother’s Day! They have everything you can think of for breakfast, and of course, that can include mimosas! Maybe make a whole weekend out of it and stay at the hotel!


Another fantastic French option, Laduree is a stunning spot to celebrate the day! They are known for their macarons, which you have to get when you go there because how could you not?!

Cafe d’Avignon at The Moxy Chelsea

This spot is something you’ll definitely want to check out, especially for Mother’s Day! It’s an artisanal cafe with the yummiest food you can imagine. I would say this is definitely more of a casual spot for a mid-day pick me up, but they do have some great bites and the atmosphere is super cute! I mean, could you say no to coffee and pastries?!
