With the coronavirus pandemic going on and Gov. Jay Inslee’s stay-home order extended, celebrating mom is going to look a little different this year. Luckily, even if you haven’t yet perfected your breakfast-in-bed game, there are plenty of restaurants in the Seattle area putting together everything from quiche and ricotta pancakes to mimosa and Bloody Mary kits.
Not a brunch person? Seattle restaurants have got that covered, too, with dinner specials (and so much wine!) running the gamut from braised short ribs to vegetable lasagna.
Here are 15 options for treating mom this Sunday. After all, food is love.
