Celebrate this Mother’s Day in Tempe

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 10, 2020. While Mother’s Day 2020 is going to be a little (a lot) different than years past, you can still do something special for your mom, mother-in-law, Grandma or anyone else who deserves to be pampered. Tempe restaurants are working so hard to provide their beloved menu items to go. We compiled a list of restaurants where you can purchase take-out for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner for your rock star of a mom who does so much for everyone in the family throughout the year.   

And, if you need Mother’s Day gift ideas, many Tempe merchants have Mother’s Day gift card offers ready for you to purchase on the MyHownd app. They come in the form of Support Vouchers so you can make Mom happy AND help out a Tempe merchant (or several merchants) at the same time.

We encourage you to check out the City of Tempe website where you’ll find a list of Tempe-based businesses with Mother’s Day gift cards and other offers. You can purchase them right from the website, or for a better experience download the MyHownd app from your favorite app store. If both you and Mom have the MyHownd app, it’s easy to share the gift card right within the app.

Even though this year is a lot different than years past, your mom will definitely appreciate you for making the extra effort to make her day memorable. While we can’t go to a Tempe restaurant right now, the whole family will love sharing a meal from one of these delicious eateries and relaxing at home.  

Sweetest Season Artisan Eatery

Sweetest Season is a perfect idea any day, but especially on Mother’s Day. They are offering their entire breakfast and lunch menu for take-out daily. They also have meal kits that will feed the whole family. Their “some assembly required” kits have everything you need to make burgers, veggie frittatas or steak and potatoes. Their aptly named “quarantine collection” are already prepared breakfast items: a waffle bar, baked good and coffee or the “family in a rut,” with eggs, potatoes, bacon and freshly baked bread. Order your meal kits early to make sure they don’t run out.
