A 2023 list of Wichita restaurants offering Mother’s Day brunches and specials

Mother’s Day is one of the biggest brunch days of the year, and since the big day is on Sunday, if you don’t have a plan in place, it’s go-time.

This year’s list of restaurants offering special Mother’s Day buffets and plated meals includes most of the regulars people are accustomed to. It also includes a new restaurant joining the Mother’s Day buffet game for the first time — Jeremy Wade’s Magnolia Cafe. And Doo-Dah Diner will be bringing back its once-popular all-you-can-eat Sunday buffet, which it now offers only on Mother’s Day and on Father’s Day.

Take a look at the list, and if we missed someone, email dneil@wichitaeagle.com and we can add it.
