Musang offers a takeout Filipino feast and an optional bouquet of flowers for Mother's Day.

As one of the most popular brunch days of the year, Mother's Day won't feel quite the same this Sunday, May 10, but it'll still be busy. Plenty of Seattle restaurants are offering takeout or delivery specials to ensure moms eat well despite coronavirus concerns, whether families can safely mimosa-in-place together or just toast to health virtually. Here are nine highlights, most of which need to be preordered in advance.

Ba Sa

Mother's Day means two well-rounded options at Bainbridge Island's sibling-run Vietnamese restaurant. Both meals feature stir-fried bok choy and shiitake mushrooms plus strawberry shortcake; from there, choose between salt and pepper Dungeness crab and sautéed beef salad or steamed sable fish and tangerine garden salad, as well as a bottle of sauvignon blanc or cab sauv. Add on a cookie box with local tulips for even more brownie points. $95 for two people, $135 for four, $30 for cookies and tulips

Ben Paris

In addition to its regular menu (think Americana comfort food like fried chicken and glorious carrot cake, plus solid cocktail kits), the State Hotel's restaurant has added Mother's Day specials such as biscuits and gravy and ricotta pancakes for brunch, red wine-braised beef short ribs for dinner, and jazzed-up mimosas with sparkling rosé and fruit sodas. It's available for takeout or limited downtown delivery. A la carte

Eden Hill

You can try to replicate the intricate plating of Queen Anne's tasting-menu star thanks to this Mother's Day brunch: Grilled asparagus frittata, fresh zucchini salad, a monkey bread muffin, sides of bacon and smoked salmon, and a spring onion crumpet are available for pick-up or delivery within 10 miles. $38 per person, $10 delivery fee

Marination and Super Six

Tropical is always tasty when it comes from this hip restaurant group, which does takeout or delivery within four miles of Columbia City's Super Six. This Mother's Day, a set meal for two includes treats like liliko'i coffee cake, sausage or vegetarian quiche, and coconut cream-filled malasadas, and most items are also available on their own. Round things out with passion-orange-guava mimosa or lemongrass bloody mary kits and a bouquet of local flowers. A la carte


With or without the optional bouquet, a Filipino feast from one of Seattle's hottest pre-Covid newcomers sounds like a winner. Chef Melissa Miranda's decidedly savory menu ranges from bola bola—salted bacalao, rockfish, and onion fritters with banana ketchup—to slow-roasted chicken afritada, and must be picked up at the Beacon Hill restaurant. $75 for four people, $100 for food plus flowers

Pioneer Square D&E

"Fried chicken and flowers" has a nice ring to it, and it's just one of the bouquet-included choices you can order from this underrated Pioneer Square restaurant on Mother's Day. Others involve everything bagels and lox or vegetable quiche for brunch as well as meatloaf for dinner. $50 for two people

Serious TakeOut

Pick up a dinner box from Tom Douglas's new Serious Pie spinoff in Ballard and you'll share either roasted bone-in pork chop or wild salmon alongside items like grilled asparagus, strawberry-rhubarb pie, a bouquet of tulips, and a bottle of pink bubbly. $95 for two people, $155 for four

Tilikum Place Cafe

If your at-home Dutch baby experiments have gone awry, you'll be delighted to know the city's top version is available again, as this Belltown classic reopens for takeout orders just in time for Mother's Day weekend. Other menu highlights include asparagus quiche, chicken pot pie, braised pork shoulder, and strawberry rhubarb tart. A la carte


Asparagus mushroom tart, roasted pork loin, and rice pudding with strawberry-rhubarb compote are among the enticing Mother's Day dishes you can pick up and reheat from this locally focused Wallingford gem. $175 for four people
