Where to Get the Best Mother’s Day Brunch Near Crane Chinatown


Finding the perfect Mother’s Day gift can be a challenge: Flowers, chocolates, gift certificates and more are always good staples but can get a little repetitive. If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind experience for the moms in your life, consider everyone’s favorite meal—brunch!—from one of the area’s best restaurants. The culinary expertise around your Crane Chinatown apartment is impressive, so the only question is which restaurant to make your reservation at.

One great contender is The Wayward, a new American brasserie with French influences. The venue, which opened a year ago, is inspired by the iconic Philadelphian Stephen Girard, whose venture from France to the City of Brotherly Love in the 1800s informs the design of the restaurant—housed in a building created by Girard himself—as well as the menu. And you can easily check it all out for yourself since it’s only a half-mile from your Crane Chinatown apartment.

Brunch is served on weekends from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and includes an eclectic menu offering something for diners of all tastes and appetites. If you’re looking for a meal on the lighter side, the snack menu features gulf shrimp, corn beignets and The Wayward’s famous selection of oysters, considered among the best in the city. If it’s classic breakfast you’re after, choose from any of the egg platters, including lobster eggs benedict, avocado tartine or the French omelet with loads of mix-ins. The lox croissant, truffle tarte flambe and chicken and waffle pot pie are just a few of the brunch favorites that will be sure to impress your brunch guests. And no brunch is complete without some bubbly. The Wayward takes the traditional favorites and kicks them up a notch: a Bloody Mary topped with gulf shrimp garnish, a mimosa with orange juice in a full carafe, more than a dozen handcrafted cocktails and reds, wines and roses from around the world.

So this Mother’s Day, ditch the flowers and instead indulge in King of Prussia’s exciting brunch scene.
