Mother’s day is just around the corner meaning it’s time to celebrate mom! Whether it’s going to brunch at mom’s favorite restaurant or staying home and serving her breakfast in bed, making mom feel special is everyone’s number one goal.
Mother’s Day is the busiest day of the year for most restaurants; however more and more families choose to celebrate Mother’s Day with picnics and backyard brunches.

Serving mom breakfast in bed is something special that can be done at any age! From toast with jelly to Belgian waffles with homemade whipped cream, mom will wake up to the delicious smell of someone else making breakfast for her and you will have made her day. If making breakfast is not your strong suit, Lunds & Byerly’s Catering delivers as early as 7AM, hot and right to your doorstep. We do all the work and you get all the credit!
If you’re planning a larger party, our "Its Brunch Time” catering service is perfect for a group of mothers and daughters to gather around for brunch/lunch, inside or outdoors. The package includes: two classic quiches, cascading fruit platter, petite croissant sandwiches, fruit and granola trifle and petite lemon bars to share. Serves 25 people.

For a more traditional brunch style meal, our “Apple and Raisin Crepe Buffet” includes: 2 apple & raisin crepes per person with whipped cream & syrup, a serving of fresh cut fruit and petite breakfast pastries. Buffet also includes serving utensils, plates, napkins & cutlery.
Locations special to mom are always fun places to celebrate her day. Just be aware there are more challenges in doing so. A few things to not forget if planning an off-site event: plates, napkins, utensils, beverages, something to keep beverages cold/hot and something to keep the food cold/hot. If you’re planning for something outdoors, always have a back-up plan - as we all know, Minnesota weather can change at the drop of a hat!
