Ah, the joys of brunch! Sunday brunch is my favorite meal of the week and there are several special menus to choose from in the Bodega Bay area this weekend. I was initially leaning toward our local favorite, the Bluewater Bistro. Their Mother's Day Brunch looks FABULOUS, but it's a fixed buffet and my kids don't eat much. Another of our family's favorites is Rocker Oysterfeller's in nearby Valley Ford. Their Mother's Day menu is a la carte so that might be a better fit this time.
Here are three menus to whet your appetite, you can click to enlarge them.
The Bluewater Bistro's brunch buffet looks amazing. Chef Patrick uses the freshest, local ingredients and always does an outstanding job. I know everything will be delicious. The Bluewater Bistro has gorgeous views of Doran Beach, Bodega Head and the ocean. They're offering complimentary sparkling wine with each meal.
Quoting from Rocker Oysterfeller's website: Rocker's will be offering an a la carte menu to entice mom’s palate this Mother’s Day. The local bounty of spring ingredients in Sonoma County as well as some of Mom’s favorite dishes inspire the menu. Live flamenco guitar will be played by musician Alfreo Caceres on the rear patio.
The bar will offer specialty cocktails infused with seasonal ingredients as well as Rocker’s Bloody Marys, Mimosas, Ramos Gin Fizzes and Champagne Cocktails. All will be available on the sunny back patio and a pack of seeds for Mom’s spring flower garden will accompany the check.
The Bay View Restaurant is part of The Inn at the Tides complex, but on the upper side of Hwy. 1. It's a lovely place with a piano, fireplace, and beautiful views of the harbor. They're offering complimentary mimosas with each meal.
Additional options: Terrapin Creek Cafe does not serve brunch but they are open for lunch on Sundays 11:00 am-2:30 pm and the Sandpiper Restaurant serves breakfast daily starting at 8:00 a.m.
Also Gourmet Au Bay wine bar in Bodega Bay will be offering half-price mimosas, and classical guitarist Dan Dewitt will perform on the wine deck from 3:00-5:00 p.m.
Happy Mother's Day and bon appetit!
