Mother’s Day Lunching and Brunching


Mother’s Day Lunching and Brunching for the Last Minute Traveler

It is certain that every human being is begotten of a mother. Another truism: Every Sunday should certainly beget a Bloody Mary. This Sunday May 10 is Mother’s Day and the only excuse for not treating Mom to a Bloody Mary is if she wants a Mimosa instead. Are you the doting husband or the darling child who brought mom to Puerto Rico this Mother’s Day? Well done, devoted partner, good on-ya prodigal child. There are plenty of options for you to eat like a local while you are here in San Juan. We at Spoon Food Tours live and die for brunch, so take a look at our favorite lunch and bunch spots, snag a last minute spot, and snuggle Mommy tight over bacon-flavored vodka, waffles, gourmet mac and cheese, and a passion fruit mimosa or two. Rinse, repeat, and snuggle Mommy some more.
