Maybe you and your mom don’t always get along. Maybe she’s a little unconventional, or maybe she doesn’t act the way you think she should. But at the end of the day, you love each other, and that’s really what matters.

No film exemplifies this message more perfectly and compellingly than MERMAIDS, and we’ve built an entire brunch feast around this cinematic gem so you can treat your own quirky mom to a fabulous Mother’s Day. Set in 1963 small town Massachusetts, the story follows conservative teenager Charlotte (Winona Ryder) and her volatile relationship with her unorthodox mother, Mrs. Flax (Cher).

As these two dynamic characters learn to appreciate their differences, you’ll savor both the eccentric charm of this film and our delicious special menu, which far exceeds Mrs. Flax’s cooking skills. Add Bob Hoskins, Christina Ricci, Michael Schoeffling (swoon!) and mimosas to the mix, and you’ve got the perfect Mother’s Day Out.

MERMAIDS will make you laugh, and it might even make you cry, but most importantly, it’s guaranteed to make you appreciate your mom, whether she’s normal or not. (Sarah Pitre)
