Since May is the month of growth, new life and rejuvenation, it’s the perfect month to celebrate those who have helped us grow into the people we are. Mothers have superpowers: they take away pain, they guide us in the right direction, and they make anything and everything seem possible, no matter how much the world fights back.
This Mother’s Day, we want to help you celebrate those special maternal figures in your lives in the best way possible—by spoiling them with delicious food! We’ve curated a list of some restaurants that are offering special treats that will have her feeling extra loved all day long.
With city and lakeshore views from the 44th floor of the Bisha Hotel, Kost offers an entire experience for your mom on top of the delicious seasonal menu. On both Saturday and Sunday this weekend, Kost will be serving up a special Mother’s Day brunch from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. Kost will also make it easy for you to spoil her with bouquets from a pop-up flower shop.
For a little entertainment to go along with your feast, Lapinou is the place to go between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Mother’s Day. This King West bistro is offering live jazz to satisfy your earbuds while satisfying your taste buds with this brunch menu curated specially for that extra special mother. The $55 three-course meal has entrée options including eggs Florentine and duck confit. Fresh bouquets of flowers and a bottle of prosecco are available as add-ons.
This downtown restaurant knows the best way to show appreciation and to celebrate someone is to shower them with free bubbly. Mothers joining Marben for brunch or dinner will receive a complimentary mimosa or glass of champers. Marben’s brunch menu is filled with anything mom’s craving from grilled pancakes to a full breakfast plate or small yogurt bowls. If she’d rather sleep in all morning (or all afternoon, because, hey, it’s her day), bring her to Marben’s weekly Sunday dinner for a special treat.
Figo’s Sunday brunch gives you an affordable way to smother your mother in appreciation. For just $55 per person, guests get a choice of starter, entrée, and dessert. With starters ranging from fried zucchini to broccoli and kale salads and mains including eggs benedict and ricotta pancakes, there’s no shortage of options on this menu. As a bonus, guests can add a bouquet to the reservation to give Figo’s stylish dining room a bit of a personal touch just for mom.
Toronto’s latest breakfast hub is doing something extra special not just for Mother’s Day but for the entire month of May. Their monthly special is the Mom’osa cocktail, made with coconut rum, sparkling wine, and pineapple juice. To make it an extra Instagrammable day celebrating mom, the beach-inspired rim is decorated with a shaved coconut and a slice of fresh pineapple. Families even have the chance to take professional pictures with mom at OEB or add a special card to the reservation.
This plant-based restaurant is opening at noon on Mother’s Day to offer its beloved Italian fare for lunch, with features such as the all-day breakfast sandwich and salad, as well as the orange olive oil cake, on the menu. For dinner, though, there’s a group dining option for four people or more, for $55 per person. Options include desserts and risotto made fresh the same day, as well as a baby gem salad and a focaccia bread.
Both the uptown and downtown locations of this Eastern Mediterranean restaurant are offering a Mother’s Day brunch for $55 per person. Included in the price is the choice of one appetizer, like hummus or roasted beets, an entrée ranging from breakfast to dinner favourites such as Brulée French toast or smoked salmon, and a dessert-like chocolate or meringue cake. Byblos is also offering the option of adding a bouquet to your reservation.
Located inside the Windsor Arms Hotel, this seasonally-inspired restaurant offers a brunch buffet to celebrate mom. Scheduled in two-hour seating windows, the brunch experience costs $135 per person and offers stations for bread and soup as well as hot and cold appetizers like lobster mac and cheese and half-shell oysters on ice. Egg and pasta stations, as well as a carving station, offer heartier offerings, and vegetarian options are also available.
For $60 per guest, diners have the choice of a starter, main, and dessert at this beautifully restored, historic space. Originally built in 1910, the restaurant offers upscale comfort food which, on Mother’s Day, means strawberry chia bowls, truffle scrambled eggs, and rhubarb and strawberry crepes. Whether mom prefers savoury or sweet, there is something on the menu that’s bound to wow her tastebuds.
Not sure what kind of brunch your mother wants most? Look no further! TOCA, inside the Ritz-Carlton, is offering a special mother’s day brunch buffet that has something for everyone. The buffet will include a seafood bar, dessert room, risotto station, and carving stations. Whether the woman of the hour wants charcuterie, prime rib, or a full breakfast like French toast or eggs Florentine, TOCA’s got it and is ready to impress.
