When it comes to honoring the special ladies in your life, you can never do enough! Mother’s Day is May 13th, so we recommend you plan ahead and do something meaningful for whoever it is you call “Mom.” Here we highlight a few of our favorite options outside the city limits.


Conroe’s Pie in the Sky is known for its delicious pies (and long lines around the holidays). Luckily for you, their brunch is as yummy as their signature pie crust and way quicker than the line for pumpkin pies during Thanksgiving. Try out their Pie Waffle or Down South Biscuits and Gravy and wash it all down with $1.00 mimosas or their specialty coffee bar. Why did it make this list? Because the pie really is worth the wait, so you might as well order a few rounds of dessert!

Everyone knows that the secret to a great day is starting it off with a lavish brunch! Call the Hotel Galvez and make a reservation for a dining experience that your mom won’t soon forget. Brunch at Hotel Galvez is an opulent event that ranges from fresh seafood to hot carving stations and of course decadent desserts. After brunch, sink your toes in the sand and walk along the shore of Galveston’s beaches or pack a suit and splash around! 


Dine in a historic home turned steakhouse in Huntsville and experience a delicious dinner with wine surrounded by the splendor of the 1872 home’s antique collection. While the food is reason enough to make the drive, you can also find replicas of flags used during the revolution years, original art commissioned by Texas artist Virgilio Davis and other tributes to Texas heroes.

Is your mom artsy? The Owen Theatre in Conroe will be showing the play “Kiss Me, Kate” presented by The Players Theatre Company. This romantic comedy was originally produced in 1948 and combines the work of two brilliant writers: Cole Porter and William Shakespeare. It’s the perfect way to celebrate your Mom – by doing something she loves to do!
