Don't worry! Despite its name, California Bakery isn't in the US. The cafe is actually on Via Larga, an area that's fairly near the city's most iconic landmark, Duomo di Milano. But just as its name says, what you can enjoy here is a full-fledge American brunch unlike any other! They serve pancakes topped with fruits and maple syrup, fresh fruit salad, all sorts of egg dishes, and of course, their freshly-baked pastries. The food here is so comfortable that you'll feel as if you're enjoying your own home-cooked meal in your luxury home! What's not to love?
With two locations across the many districts of Milan
, one on Via Vincenzo Monti and the other on Viale Premuda, L’OV Milano has certainly proven itself as a popular brunch spot in the city. Especially with their delicious food! Think homemade granola yogurt for a healthier option. Or grilled sausages for a meatier dish. And if you want to share with your mom, you can always go for pancakes with maple syrup. Pair those with the place's classic decor and nostalgic ambiance and you've got yourself a Mother's Day Brunch you won't soon forget!

Just one look at Cocotte and you and your mother will instantly want to have brunch here for Mother's Day! This small but charming cafe on Via Benvenuto Cellini looks as sweet as the treats they serve. And speaking of treats, their brunch menu has a ton of them! The most famous are the pancakes topped with fresh fruit and drizzled with maple syrup. You couldn't ask for a sweeter start to your day than that! If you prefer a more savory option, you can always go for their poached egg instead! They come with bacon and asparagus for a more stomach-filling kick!

There's really only one word you have to remember when thinking about eating at Pandenus—bread! If you can't get enough of the fluffy treat, especially for your Mother's Day brunch, then look no further than this chic bistro on Via Tadino! Although bread isn't the only thing they serve, the ones they bake here are so good that you'd keep asking for more. You'll also prefer to pair them with their poached eggs, well-cooked meats, fresh fruits & vegetables, and more. Pair those with a hot cup of coffee
and you and your mom are good to go!
