Mother’s Day Brunch Picks


Celebrate the special mom in your life by treating her to brunch at one of the local renowned eateries. Janet’s Café at 9225 Carlton Hills Blvd. is known for quaint ambiance and genuine comfort food. Patio seating is available so you can dine al fresco with Belgian waffles, decadent French toast, luxury omelettes, or one of the featured egg breakfasts.

Gillespie Field Café, located at 2015 N Marshall Ave, El Cajon, is known just as much for the free “show” as it is for its traditional menu. Situated right next to Gillespie Field, where small planes and helicopters are stationed, it’s not unusual to witness an impromptu air show or be treated to a view of a vintage aircraft while dining on breakfast and brunch staples.

A Day for Mom

Izzy’s Café at 1252 Broadway, El Cajon opens at 7 a.m. and serves up authentic Southern cuisine. Famous for their scrambles, the Dr. Paul’s includes six egg whites, fresh spinach, tomatoes, and cheese per request. You can create your own frittata, opt for a Mexican-style breakfast, or go sweet with crepes or Maureen’s original croissant French toast.

Try THE TRAILS Neighborhood Eatery at 7389 Jackson Dr., San Diego for a touch of Hollywood glamour. The slick, modern space is known for their gluten-free brunch. Blueberry multigrain pancakes, chocolate covered bacon, raisin French toast, and granola banana waffles are just a few of the treats in store.
