Although Babingtons, also known as Babington's Tea Room, is more for afternoon tea (like the hotspots in London), it's become a popular brunch spot in Rome over the years. Its customers, especially women, can't help but keep coming back for their sweet pastries, warm tea, and calming ambiance. Its location on Piazza di Spagna also contributes to its fame. Since the tea room is beside one of the most well-visited tourist sites in Rome, many who visit the famous Spanish Steps often end up taking a break here. So if you plan to take your mom out for brunch at Babingtons, make sure you reserve a table beforehand!
Located in the Ostiense district in Rome
, Marigold has become a brunch staple for locals and tourists alike. Most of what they serve on the menu are the perfect dishes to serve for Brunch; particularly ones that your mother would enjoy. Avocado on rye bread, for instance, offers a soft health kick and a delicious fruity punch! Buttermilk pancakes, on the other hand, are perfect if your mom has a huge sweet tooth. And if you both just want something simple and easy but also organic and healthy, their homemade granola and yogurt will do the trick!

Rosti al Pigneto
Rigatoni all’ amatriciana
, Gnocchi Pomodoro e basilico
, and calamari ripieni
—these are just some of the dishes that Rosti al Pigneto serves under their Brunch menu. And from these three alone, you can already tell that this place is all about authentic Italian cuisine! Very suitable for a culinary hotspot in the country's capital city, is it not? If you treated your mother on a trip to Rome for Mother's Day this year, it makes sense that you also treat her to a place where they serve the most authentic Italian brunch food possible. And you won't find a place that fits that description quite like Rosti al Pigneto on Via Bartolomeo d'Alviano
Finally, there's Hopside, a fairly relaxed brunch place Via Francesco Negri. It's a pretty trendy place, so much so that you'll probably question if your mom would like it here for her Mother's Day Brunch. The hotspot does look and feel like it's more for a younger crowd, after all. It's a brewery housed in an old warehouse. That couldn't be farther from the types of places your mom would usually eat at, isn't it? Well, with that said, however, their brunch menu will certainly delight your madre
. Think Eggs Benedict, veggie burgers, and fruit cheesecake for dessert!
