The Atwater Village brewery and pub is a cross-generational beer hall. Bespectacled bike riders join the Land's End crowd in parking here for hours -- with pints of Point the Way IPA or the signature Hefeweizen in hand. There is a comfortable conviviality, helped in large part by the easy flow between indoor and outdoor spaces as well as a food menu friendly to eaters from all walks of the dietary spectrum. 5410 W. San Fernando Rd., Los Angeles; (213) 373-4677.
1. For Coffee Lovers: Cognoscenti at Proof Bakery

Coffee still reigns in America as the favored source of caffeine -- even centuries after the Sons of Liberty dumped chests of tea into the Boston Harbor. There is a Cognoscenti Coffee in Culver City (which we enjoy), but on Mother's Day why not opt for Proof, where you can pair a cortado or cappucino with a chocolate caramel tart with Maldon sea salt or a slice of almond frangipane cake? Consider it a very small token of thanks for all those years your mother spent wiping -- literally and figuratively -- up after you. 3156 Glendale Blvd., Los Angeles; (323) 664-8633.
