Treat Mom this Mother’s Day

May 1st, 2016

Anaheim is rich with brunch, breakfast and dinner options to treat mom like royalty, but where will you start? For many, Mother’s Day weekend will kick off with a trip to Disneyland where every single restaurant will have special treats just for her. Plus, there are free flowers throughout the park, and it’s the perfect excuse for the queen of your family to hob knob with princesses for photo opportunities.


Make reservations at Andrea’s Restaurant on Pelican Hill, a luxe eatery that still has a casual vibe. The intimate banquettes, outdoor terrace with ocean views, and house-crafted cocktails are sure to delight. The appetizer menu features seasonal soups, octopus, seared scallops, and shaved veggie salads with a caramelized dressing. Homemade pasta, fresh seafood and homemade gelato helped make Andrea’s famous.

Make Mom Melt

The Canaletto Ristorante Veneto in Newport Beach, close to Fashion Island, is an Italian mouthful (of flavor). If its sister restaurant in the Venetian has snagged your heart, you’ll be in heaven here. Barrel-shaped ceilings and a romantic atmosphere, along with reasonable prices, make this restaurant a top pick. Begin with fresh oysters, swordfish, or a memorable pizza. Grass-fed veal, clam pasta, and risotto helped put this eatery on the map.

Whether it’s a decadent brunch or a family-friendly dinner you have in mind, Anaheim has all the options you can imagine for a Mother’s Day to remember.
