The Boheme

The recent makeover of The Boheme hasn’t hurt the popularity of its practically legendary Sunday brunch, and Mother’s Day should be no exception. The restaurant and sixth-floor pool area will host all-day feasts for Mom and the brood, with upscale highlights including Chateaubriand with truffle demi-glace, hand-rolled sushi, live jazz and a complimentary mimosa for Mom.
$69.95, Boheme brunch, 10 a.m.-9 p.m.; $59.95, pool area; 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Grand Bohemian Hotel, 325 S. Orange Ave. Orlando, 407-313-9000. grandbohemianhotel.com

 


 

La Coquina

A view of the idyllically named Lake Windsong, made-to-order entrees and a French marketplace setting at the Grand Cypress will all make for a very happy Mom. In addition to the already overflowing stations featuring pasta, seafood and waffles, usually found at Sunday brunch, several especially-for-Mom dishes grace the menu, including Peruvian sea bass and rack of lamb.
$71.95 adults, $35.95 children under 12; 10:30 a.m.-6 p.m.
Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Resort, One Grand Cypress Blvd., Orlando, 407-239-3853. grandcypress.hyatt.com

 


 

Gaylord Palms Resort

Whether Mom hankers for a breakfast of poached eggs over crab cakes, quiche Lorraine and hand-made omelets for lunch, or rosemary-brushed roast beef for dinner, her plate will be full at this all-day Mediterranean spree. The open market-style Villa de Flora dining room has touches of France, Italy, Greece and Spain coming out of the six separate kitchens.
$52 adults, $21.50 children 3-12; noon-10 p.m.
6000 W. Osceola Parkway, Kissimmee, 407-586-1114. gaylordhotels.com/gaylord-palms
 


 

Crave

While the word “brunch” (breakfast and lunch, natch) has been a beloved term since 1896, Crave’s Mother’s Day repast may add “never-ending’’ to the definition. The “all you can eat” affair offers family-style platters of eggs, applewood smoked bacon, Tillamook cheddar, ham and house-made hash browns to complement the offerings at the carving station and omelet bar.
$22.95 adults, $12.95 children under 12; 10a.m.-3p.m.
4158 Conroy Road, Orlando, 407-345-8788. fl.craveamerica.com

 


 

Park Plaza Gardens

Mom probably already knows how good this perennial
favorite is. The selections at Park Plaza Gardens are surprisingly hearty: pan-seared pork tenderloin, Prince Edward Island mussels and poached eggs “California” (replete with scallops, avocado, and red and yellow tomatoes) highlight the menu. A dinner seating is also available, featuring PPG’s fabulous crabmeat-and-asparagus-topped veal Oscar.
$49.95 per person, includes unlimited mimosas; 11 a.m.-9 p.m. 319 Park Ave. S., Winter Park, 407-645-2465. parkplazagardens.com
