Charlotte has many ways to celebrate Mother's Day whether it's taking mom out for a special brunch, lunch or dinner or giving her a little rest and relaxation at an area day spa. There are also plenty of activities for the entire family.

Taking Mom Out to Eat

New South Kitchen & Bar
Tucked away in a crevice of the massive Arboretum Shopping Center in South Charlotte is New South Kitchen & Bar which serves up a tasty homestyle buffet brunch every Sunday.

The crab cakes benedict served are well worth the wait if you don't make the first serving. The homestyle biscuits and gravy are also a tasty treat that mom will appreciate.
