    This list is exactly the kind of thing we were looking for when we were planning our Mother’s Day weekend in Traverse City and were trying to find out which places were offering a special brunch. These all sound wonderful – just wish you had sent this out earlier, as we have already made reservations elsewhere. I’m sure a lot of others have, too.

    Also, for those places having a formal Mother’s Day Brunch (as opposed to just ordering from the menu) the price would have been helpful.

    I will keep these places in mind for next year.
    Thanks

    Another great place to add is Arcadia Bluffs in Arcadia (on M-22 south of Frankfort). We’ve been going there for several years. Beautiful view overlooking Lake Michigan. Food is fabulous. This is my first year as a mom myself, so I am very much looking forward to it. Oh yes, and the mimosas… :)
