Whether you want the intimate charm of Ellicott City's Main Street or a bustling family experience, Patch readers have chosen a brunch spot for Mother's Day.
In fact, they chose two.
In another Readers' Choice tie, you picked and as the best spots for Mother's Day brunch.
If you're planning to visit either of these spots Sunday, be prepared to wait.
Portalli's expects about 300 people for its Sunday brunch buffet, from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. The Main Street restaurant is no longer taking reservations, but will likely have room for smaller parties -- up to four people.
Eggspectation does not take reservations. For the shortest wait, the restaurant recommends showing up either before 9 a.m. or after 2 p.m.
At Portalli's, the buffet will include unlimited mimosas or bloody marys; breakfast and brunch standards; and classic Italian lunch items.
Eggspectation will offer its full breakfast, lunch and dinner menu all day. That means dinner for breakfast or breakfast for dinner, if it suits your -- and your mother's -- fancy.
