Mother's Day brunch: I need some low-carb brunch food ideas. Bonus points if they can be cooked on the grill.

I'm hosting Mother's Day brunch this year. Several guests (including the guest of honor, hi Mom!) are on a low-carb diet, so things like waffles and cinnamon rolls need to not be on the menu.
My go-to menu in this situation would be a lot of fresh fruit, some sort of baked egg thing, bacon and sausage, and maybe some sugar-free Jello dessert. But I feel like this is not as creative or special a menu as I would like. It's Mother's day, my mom is awesome, and I want to show support for her healthy diet choices and cook up some extra-nice food.
One more complication: the weather here is finally getting nice, and my husband is itching to fire up the grill. I don't want to serve up burgers and brats for brunch, though; I want something more elegant, more brunch-like. So what else could we grill?
I like to mess around in the kitchen but I'm not used to the low-carb thing - I feel like I'm missing some obvious ideas. Specific recipes or general menu advice would help. Help me hive mind!
