Mother's Day pancakes in Denver

Mother's Day is coming, which means you really only have two options: 1) create some sort of gravitation machine to reverse the Earth's rotation and go back in time and kill the man who invented Mother's Day, or 2) take your mom out to a nice brunch. Just in case you don't figure out the easier way first, here are some spots where you can take her as a last resort

Nervous Regarding the World Mom Snooze 700 N Colorado Blvd, Suite A; Southeast; 303.736.6200 There's a reason this ever-popular brunch spot has expanded to five Colorado locations. This particular one is the best bet for a nervous mom: she won't have to brave the young whippersnappers at the Cap Hill Snooze nor the craziness of the Ballpark location, and can instead enjoy their sweet, delicious pancakes and mouth-watering Bennys in a stress-free environment. Don't hit snooze on this link for more info
Foodie Mom Trillium 2134 Larimer St; Five Points; 303.379.9759 Take yo momma's mouth on a journey around the world with brunch eats like a Benedict with Finnish flatbread, Aquavit Gravlax, vodka Hollandaise, and whitefish roe, plus steak and eggs paired with fried cornbread, a crab cake, and sparkling dill Hollandaise. Bon appetit, or whatever it is Finnish people say! Read on about Trillium after the link
Mom Who Hates Your Life Choices The Brown Palace Hotel 321 17th Street; CBD; 303.297.3111 A hotel that's been around since 1892 and has hosted almost every US prez (damn you, Coolidge!), the Palace offers a Dom Perignon brunch in its opulent dining area where the Champers flows like water, and heaps of eggs, seafood, sushi, and pastries from the hotel's bakery will make mom forget she hasn't approved of a single decision you've made since moving out of her house. (The Champagne will be a big part of this.) More on Brown Palace and the Champagne brunch that won't quit
Party Mom Zengo 1610 Little Raven St; LoDo; 720.904.0965 Bring your mom in and she gets a British mother handed to her a free mum just for dining at the swank LoDo eatery, but she also gets to hear music from a DJ and drink bottomless brunch 'tails like sangria, Bloody Marias, and mimosas. Prepare to hear what she really thinks of you! More info for your party mom
Very Old Mom The Egg & I 560 S. Holly St; Glendale; 303.577.9050 With tons of egg dishes (from Benedicts to skillets and hashes) that are perfectly soft for dentures, this particular Glendale location is always full of seniors quietly enjoying their meals as precious seconds tick off their lives. Your mom will feel right at home! More after the link on you and the Egg

1. The Egg & I 560 S Holly St, Denver, CO 80246

Started in CO, The Egg and I has since expanded to over 20 states. Sample strong breakfast options like their Deluxe Egg Sandwich, Wisconsin Scramble, or the Hiker's Benedict: diced ham, asparagus, tomatoes, portabella mushrooms, dill hollandaise sauce, two strips of bacon and two poached eggs on two English muffin halves. It's legit. You can also choose one of their "smarter choices", like the Breakfast Sundae: layers of crunchy granola, fruit, low-fat yogurt and crisp apple slices in a tall parfait glass.

4. Zengo 1610 Little Raven St, Denver, CO 80202 (Lodo)

Zengo, Chef Richard Sandoval’s homage to pan-Asian cuisine, offers a tasteful yet accessible approach to sushi, sashimi, dim sum, tempura, curry, and grilled and wok-fried plates on its dinner menu, with staples like Sichuan beef and pumpkin curry with bok choy, coconut milk, and fried shallot. But Zengo is perhaps most infamous for its weekend bottomless brunch menu, which features waffles reimagined with sugary coconut flavoring, whipped brown butter, and mango and a would-be simple short rib hash brightened with kimchi sauce. It won’t be difficult to take advantage of the bottomless deal; the brunch cocktail program includes a zesty Bloody Mary and a trio of mimosas: traditional, passion fruit, and Zengo.
