Taking your mom out for brunch is a Mother's Day tradition. In this week's Readers' Choice 2012 poll, we're asking you to vote for the best mom-friendly brunch in Alameda. (And in case you're not sure — Mother's Day this year is on Sunday, May 13.)
Vote for your favorite in the poll at the end of this article. Click on the links below and rate the business on its Patch Place listing. You can even leave a review.
The nominees this week are mostly drawn from suggestions by Alameda Patch's Facebook page viewers. We know we've left out some favorites — Alameda is full of great places to eat, and we couldn't include them all.
So if we left out your favorite, start a write-in a campaign in the comments section below. (Alameda spots only, please.) A write-in could win! In the event of a tie, we will break it based on the comments, so please explain your choice.
One reader even emailed us a Mother's Day "dream brunch" menu — Peet's coffee with beignets, followed by mango juice, heart-shaped pancakes topped with light maple syrup, bacon, apple-chicken sausages and an assortment of berries topped with whipped cream. A tad heavy on the cholesterol, perhaps, but hey, Mother's Day only comes around once a year!
Because our poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results, comments and reviews on Patch Places. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch.
The poll closes at 9 a.m. Friday. Come back later that afternoon for the results.
