Your mom’s jaw will drop at the stunning backdrop of Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden (11935 Old Cutler Rd., Coral Gables). But it’s not just eye candy — there will also be some European-inspired eats that should please her palate too. “A Taste of Italy” will offer rosemary roast beer, cornetto pastries, caprese salads, and lots of other goodies. The brunch runs from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Garden House and costs $55 per adult and $27.50 per child (5 to 12). Kids 4 and younger eat free. Call 305-256-8399 or visit fairchildgarden.org.
