Mother's Day Brunch Guide

By Reformation PR

Mother’s Day is arguably the most important holiday of the year. Why? Because she gave birth to you, that’s why. Since then she’s worked the world’s toughest job, raising an infant into an upstanding citizen. Now it’s time to return the favour, so stop the monotony of Mother’s Day mani-pedis and tired greeting card clichés and treat Mom to the day she truly deserves, starting with brunch at one of the top spots in the city.

No two moms are created equal, so choose a dining destination that speaks to her personal palate, whether she has traditional tastes or a penchant for the unexpected.

High Tea at Faubourg Paris
Paris may be miles (and pricey plane tickets) away, but the next best thing is right in your backyard. For the European-influenced, pinky-raising, polished Mom, opt for an intimate afternoon tea at Faubourg Paris, Vancouver’s trio of elegant Parisian boulangerie pâtisseries. With savoury bites and sweet treats served alongside piping hot pots of gourmet tea, it’s sure to have your mom saying “merci”!

Funky Brunch at Calabash
Has your mom always marched to the beat of her own bongo drum? Calabash Bistro, a vessel for quality Caribbean food, drink, music and art, serves up Caribbean-style brunch to match its much-loved reggae vibe. If she’s an island loving, down-to-earth darling, treat her to a Caribbean experience that’s sure to delight.

Traditional Eats at The District Brasserie
A trip across the pond might not be in order for Mom this Mother’s Day, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t deserve a like-minded treat. Take her on a day trip to explore the splendours of North Vancouver’s Lower Lonsdale, located just a quick Seabus ride from downtown. Satisfy hunger pangs brought on by the great outdoors with a delicious pit-stop at The District Brasserie. With European-inspired dishes, plenty of sweet and savoury cocktails, and a lively, social setting, Mother’s Day at The District Brasserie is sure to become a long-term tradition.
