Mother's Day is quickly approaching. Have you made plans yet? 

Well, if you haven't, these places might already be completely filled because according to NBC4, they are the most visited places for brunch in L.A. on Mother's Day.

TripAdvisor collected data from its users and released this list of the busiest brunch hot spots around town. 

10. The Original Pantry

The Original Pantry is located right downtown Los Angeles and is a very interesting place. It opened in 1924, and since opening, it has never closed its doors (it's open 24 hours) and it has never been without a customer. In fact, there are apparently no locks on the doors because they've never closed. As seen by the picture above, it's a very popular place every day, not just Mother's Day.

Location: Check locally

NORMS is similar to a Denny's or iHop in that it is a franchise diner, and can be found almost everywhere around L.A. Find your nearest NORMS, grab your mom, and go get a good meal to celebrate the special day.

8. Cecconi's

Cecconi's has many locations around the world, including one right in West Hollywood. It is Italian with a very fancy Venetian vibe, perfect for treating the woman who raised you to a nice meal with a good atmosphere.

Bottega Louie is known for its pizzas, pastas, brunch, but probably mostly for its very Instagrammable macarons. Take a pic of mom in front of the macarons, post it up, and show all your followers what a great son or daughter you are.

6. Catch

When you step into Catch, it's like stepping into another world. Located on a rooftop in West Hollywood, it's a favorite spot for many celebrities, so you may just see the Kardashians there this Sunday honoring their momager.

5. The Griddle Café

It’s a tradition to make a post each time I go to #TheGriddleCafe, one of my favorite spots in LA for breakfast. 🍳 Simply, can’t beat it! #GriddleCafe #SunsetBLVD #SunsetBoulevard #Breakfast #La #LosAngeles

This famous breakfast cafe located right on Sunset Boulevard is the perfect place the get a great meal with mom that cannot be beat.

Also a favorite with celebrities, paparazzi is known to sit out front of this L.A. hot spot. Bond with your mom by trying to photobomb celebrities as they enter and exit the restaurant.

3. Perch

We're feeling berry LA right now 🍸

The appropriately named restaurant makes you feel as though you are a bird perched atop a building. With incredible city views and delicious dishes, this is the perfect place to honor your mom.

2. Rose Café Restaurant

Location: 220 Rose Ave, Venice, CA 90291

Located closer to the coast in Venice, Rose Cafe has more of a rustic vibe with hanging plants and lights that I'm sure your mom will love.

1. Gjelina

And finally at number 1, we have Gjelina, also location in Venice. This place has a very chill ambiance with "New American" cuisine that must warrant this #1 ranking. 

Some bonus places that I personally love are the following:

  • Salazar

This is one of my new favorite spots! It's in Eagle Rock and not only is the ambiance perfect for Mother's Day (and really any day), but it has great food too! 

Well, I hope this helped you find a place to bring your mom this Sunday. Happy Mother's Day!
