Mother's Day Brunches on Long Island
We think it should be a rule that Mom doesn't have to cook on Mother's Day. With that in mind, there are several restaurants and inns on Long Island serving brunch that include separate prices and menus for kids. Some even offer moms free goodies. Be sure to call ahead for reservations since these places tend to book up quickly! And for other family-friendly events happening during the weekend, check out our Long Island Calendar.

Adults $50, children $20

Afterwards, walk off the extra calories with a stroll through Eisenhower Park!
