Please note – Oakland County Moms receives many inquiries about Detroit area Mother’s Day Brunches and Oakland County Mother’s Day brunch. We used to list more but received complaints that events I list sell out very quickly (often before OCM receives info on them). I’ve listed a few Mother’s Day brunches on this page I’ve been told handle large seating capacities. Please find your favorite location early and call ahead. Even for the Mother’s Day brunches listed on this page, OCM recommends advanced reservations.
