Mother's Day Dining Laguna Beach

The busiest restaurant day of the year is fast approaching. Unless you live in a cave somewhere, you know that this coming Sunday, May 12th is Mother’s Day. 

Here’s a quick list of the restaurants that will be open for Mother’s Day dining in Laguna Beach. Sunday is predicted to be clear and beautiful (upper 80s!), so there’s really no better place to be!

Note: Before we even begin with the restaurant list, you need to know …

Accepting no more reservations: Las Brisas (thank heavens this allows you to try something wonderful in Laguna Beach instead), and The Loft at the Montage (small wonder as this really is a great place for Mother’s Day).

Very limited reservations available: Grand Ballroom Montage Champagne Brunch, 949-715-6420

Closed on Mother’s Day:  The Deck, La Sirena Grill, Tivoli Too.

Restaurants open for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner on Mother’s Day in Laguna Beach

All restaurants listed are still serving their regular menus, but a few are featuring special Mother’s Day menus, which I’ve noted. I’ve starred the restaurants (**) where I would take my beloved mother on Mother’s Day.
