Write-in votes in the comments section gave The Terrace Room overlooking Lake Merritt the lead in this week's Readers' Choice 2012 poll for the best Mother's Day brunch close to Piedmont.
The Terrace Room is located in the Art Deco-style Lake Merritt Hotel, 1800 Madison St., Oakland. The hotel is owned by Piedmont residents Randy and Cheryl Berger. You can read about how they converted it from an apartment hotel to senior housing in this 2010 San Francisco Chronicle article.
