MISSOULA — Restaurants have been busy reopening their doors to the public, and now are getting ready for Mother's Day brunch.

"It is so fabulous to have people back in the building," said Colleen Powers owner of Rumour restaurant.

On Saturday, the doors to this restaurant are closed, and there are no customers inside. But they are open for business, and by Sunday, they'll be ready to serve you for Mother's Day.

Rumour restaurant opened right here in Missoula four year's ago, the day after Mother's Day.

Powers says following allowance from health officials, they recently reopened on May 4th.

"People want to be here, they're excited to get out, they see what we do, sanitation and food safety is not new for us," said Powers.

Social distancing in the restaurant is new, but Powers says not much has changed.

"People feel comfortable here," said Powers.

Down the street, Paradise Falls isn't able to do their usual Mother's Day buffet.

"With all the new restrictions from the health department, but we are going to be running the regular menu," said Jordanne Berreca manager of Paradise Falls.

Servers are wearing masks, and manager Berreca says they've added extra cleaning and sanitizing.

"We haven't had anything like this before. So just figuring out what we can do as a business to make it a nice place for people to come to, make it a safe place," said Berreca

If you're not ready to dine in-both Rumour and Paradise Falls are also offering Mother's Day pick up.
