Mother's Bistro recommends that you make reservations, unfortunately, they do not take reservations for brunch times. So, you'll have to wait in line.

Waiting in line

We got in at 12:20 PM on a Sunday and put down our name and phone number. The host told us that the wait was going to be around 40 minutes, but there's also an option to wait in a shorter line for the 14 seat counter bar. We ended up waiting in the shorter line and grabbed two seats by 12:46 PM (you can still keep your name on the actually waiting list while waiting).

When we finished eating around 1:20 PM, the line for the bar was non-existent so this is probably a good time to come if you don't mind eating at the bar (breakfast doesn't end until 2:30 PM).

What to Order

We ended up ordering:

Banana Waffle with Vanilla Ice Cream
Mike’s Special Scramble
Orange Juice (comes from a jug)

Everything here was delicious. Even the odd pairing of Vanilla ice cream with banana waffles.
