Your mom brought you into this world, nurtured you into the adult-ish person you are today, and how have you repaid her? Bitcoins? Please don't say it was bitcoins. Show her your appreciation with the gift of deliciousness and take her to one of these five brunch spots tailored to her personal taste. For The Nervous Regarding The World Mom Snooze 3940 5th Ave; 619.500.3344 If the idea of ordering from a menu full of food she can't pronounce makes your mother hyperventilate, take her to brunch at Snooze. Don't let the name fool you; the food here is far from boring, but they do have tons of traditional breakfast staples for her to pick from, plus playful items like "Coffee & Donuts" pancakes -- buttermilk pancakes glazed in maple icing and topped with crushed pecans, with a cup of espresso cream on the side. Do yourself a favor: take the edge off and order her a mimosa or a Home Sweet Home Bloody Mary to calm her nerves. See what else is on the menu... For The Foodie Mom Urban Solace 3823 30th St; 619.295.6464 The Bluegrass Brunch at Urban Solace puts a twist on classic Southern comfort cuisine that any food-loving mother can appreciate, like the Braised Duroc Pork Belly Eggs Benedict served on a biscuit with sautéed spinach, poached local Eben-Haezer eggs, and smoked ancho hollandaise. Make sure to reserve a table on the patio so the live Bluegrass band can help fill the awkward silence when she starts probing you about your love life. It'll be music to your mouth... For The Mom Who Hates Your Life Choices Addison in the Grand Del Mar 120 E Delaware Pl; 312.799.4900 Make up for being a constant disappointment by taking her to the Addison in the Grand Del Mar Hotel. It's been named one of the most expensive restos in the country, so hopefully dishing out the dough for their $235 10-course Mother’s Day Brunch will finally get her off your back and give her something to one-up her friends with. Get ready to spend... For The Party Mom Firehouse 722 Grand Ave; 858.274.3100 Embrace the fact that she can drink you under the table and let mom go wild at Firehouse in Pacific Beach. Take advantage of the Champagne Sunday bottle special, or go shot for shot with her at their rooftop bar, but with Fire Station 21 directly next door, don't be shocked if she starts propositioning firemen for a little stop, drop, and roll. Even mom needs to party sometimes... For The Very Old Mom The Red Door 741 W Washington St; 619.295.6000 If you have a mom who could be mistaken your grandmother, The Red Door is a spot with a bistro-esque feel where you can enjoy warm biscuits and homemade jam... or chicken-fried steak & eggs. Plus, it's pretty low-key, so you won’t have to yell into her hearing aid to get her to pass the salt. These biscuits will be your jam...

What's better than brunching on a rooftop? Why, brunching on a rooftop overlooking the Pacific Ocean, of course. At Firehouse you get just that, in addition to a killer happy hour and the spinning stylings of live DJs by night. The place is huge, modern and sleek, with spacious leather booths and tabletops that double as fire pits. You'll be served American fare and local fish alongside creative cocktails, beer and wine.
