MacArthur's Riverview Restaurant The Hotel Thayer 674 Thayer Rd., West Point 845-446-4731 Located at the United States Military Academy, this restaurant is known almost as much for its beautiful surroundings as it is for its delicious cuisine. The usual Sunday Champagne Brunch - complete with live-action cooking stations for home-made waf- fles and traditional Bananas Foster as well as its famous giant shrimp, decadent desserts, and unlimited champagne, Mimosas, and Bloody Mary adult beverages - hosts a special Mother's Day offering from 10:30am to 2:30pm for $49.95 per person (children 5-12 are half off and kids under 5 are free).

Henry's sources all its ingredients from local farms and artisan food producers and purveyors, giving a boost to Hudson Valley business. You'll be able to taste the freshness in so many menu items, including various omelets, Bananas Foster French toast, huevos rancheros, and buttermilk malted Belgium waffles. The brunch menu includes both breakfast and lunch options and even has a pizza section. Brunch is served from 11am to 3pm and menu prices range from about $10 to $16. After chowing down, take a stroll along one of the grounds' many trails and take in the view of the Hudson River. You may just be able to snap your family holiday card photo before leaving as the stores have even thought about putting up their Christmas decorations! And if you're looking for a gift for Mom, check out the spa packages at the Inn. A gift card for a massage or an afternoon steaming in the sauna could be the perfect way to help her unwind.

End the meal with a spin through the extravagant dessert table, which will be filled with special selections from Shadows' pastry team. The brunch is $22.95 per person and runs from 9:30am to 1pm, so you can get an early start.
