For Mother’s Day, they’re serving a “Mom’osa” which are classic mimosas with a “tropical twist.” They also have plenty of delicious brunch options like six different types of Egg Benedicts and scram-blettes. You can also order takeout if your mom is more of a breakfast in bed kind of person.

They have three different steam rooms, plenty of massage offerings, and different body treatments and facials. Art of Sauna currently has a “Mother’s Day Pamper Package” which includes a strawberry and coconut facial and body scrub.
