Breakfast is the best time to plan your visit to Mother's. At this time, there are numerous goodies to choose amongst including Quiche, French Toast, Omelets and scrambles, Frittatas, a House Cured Lox Platter, and even Breakfast Nachos.

Mother's offers your traditional menu of standard breakfast fare, plus a few specialty options for those on special diets, such as gluten-free toast and a vegan Tofu hash.

Mothers serves coffee from local company Extracto Coffee Roasters, so you can enjoy a quality cup of joe alongside your meal.

Everything is made from scratch using local ingredients and slow cooking techniques. Chef Lisa Schroeder attended The Culinary Institute of America, where she was selected as one of the top 10 student chefs in America by Food and Wine magazine.


Servers are all attentive and very friendly.


Mother's dining room is so beautiful, elegant and classy, yet still maintains a cozy, laid-back appeal. This is a great place for a casual breakfast date or low-key celebratory meal.
