Best Mother's Day Brunch Crowd-Pleaser: Mecklenburg Gardens

Planning a Mother’s Day get-together can bring on a lot of pressure. We just want to celebrate the ladies in our lives! Moms, grandmas, in-laws, mother figures and any picky personalities can all enjoy the annual brunch buffet at Mecklenburg Gardens. A menu fit for queens regularly includes items like French toast and Belgian waffles, an array of breakfast meats, biscuits and gravy, plus a hot carving station, build-your-own sandwich bar and dessert spread. Treat Mama to bottomless mimosas or a build-your-own bloody bar while dining in the picturesque biergarten that’s cozy and intimate, yet spacious enough for big families. If you don’t want to wait to visit, the restaurant does authentic German-inspired fare for lunch and dinner, like schnitzel, sauerbraten and all sorts of wursts. Covered with 100-year-old grape vines, Mecklenburg Gardens dates back to 1865 — a true historic Cincinnati setting. Mecklenburg Gardens, 302 E. University Ave., Corryville, mecklenburgs.com.
