It’s no secret that New Orleanians love to brunch, and what better way to celebrate your special diva this Mother’s Day?

SWEET & STYLISHLY EUROPEAN

 

Treat Mom to cafe au lait and beignets at Morning Call’s gorgeous patio in City Park! With plenty of parking and a streetcar stop, City Park is perfect for a leisurely outdoor morning with your diva. Set an elegant mood by dressing her up in a stunning Red Fans! This intricate print is the perfect way to treat her to adventure without leaving town.

Once she’s in the perfect dress, adorn with a vintage-inspired fascinator for a touch of eye-catching glamour and extra mystique. Then, take her away with a magical, romantic ride around the interwoven lagoons canopied by ancient oaks heavy with Spanish moss with NOLA Gondola!

There’s nothing as sweet as a matching outfit on Mother’s Day! Dressing up your littles in clothes that match their mommy is the perfect way to make them feel all grown up (without having to let them go!) Our line of Rockabilly Baby clothes is just the thing for dressing up baby for New Orleans brunch and special occasions all year round (plus it makes for a great photo op!)

 

SHAKE, RATTLE, & ROLL

 

Take your retro diva to breakfast any time of day at Belle’s Diner! Located in the heart of the French Quarter, this diner offers an early 1950’s Malt Shop vibe with tasty food offerings. Open from 7 AM to 7 PM every day, art featuring “Bomber Girls” adorns the space while the staff croons along to classic tunes from America’s sweetheart era.

Featuring cozy booths and a shake menu blasted from the past, Belle’s is perfect for a special meal and a cocktail or two (seriously, they serve boozy handspun milkshakes!). Once you’re having the raddest brunch party ever, surprise her with a touch of the retro ambience to take home with the Erstwilder Shake Rattle & Roll Brooch! She’ll love this colorful resin milkshake pin, and each time she wears it, she’ll remember the best Mother’s Day ever.

DIVA-LICIOUS SOUTHERN FLAIR

 

What southern belle could pass up biscuits or BBQ shrimp toast? Willa Jean, named after Chef/Partner Kelly Fields’s grandmother, celebrates Southern sensibilities with fresh, local ingredients. The restaurant and bakery serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner throughout the week as well as Saturday and Sunday brunch–perfect for this weekend (just be sure to make a reservation!) Glam up in your most elegant Trashy Diva dresses and treat your favorite momma (or grandmomma) to simple mornin’ snacks or a whole hearty brunch at Willa Jean.

THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE BRUNCH

 

With several locations around town, the Ruby Slipper is a great spot to bring any diva mom with a love for magic. Serving specialty dishes as well as traditional fare and kids’ meals, the breakfast menu also features several sparkling cocktails like the signature Ruby Slipper mimosa.
