We’ve spoken many a time about brunch being like a religion. And if this is the case, then a holy high brunch holiday is Mother’s Day. We’ve been hearing about some great restos doing it up right for mom – and let’s be honest, she deserves nothing but the best – and have rounded up this list of 10 sweet restaurants for Mother’s Day brunch in Toronto…
Le Select Bistro
It’s no secret we adore Le Select’s French bistro fare, so it should come as no surprise that we had to see what they were up to for Mother’s Day brunch. They’re treating mom like a queen with a $35 prix fixe menu (escalope de foie gras, anyone?) and mimosas aplenty.
Another French gem, Bodega’s brunch season begins again this weekend, and will be prepped and ready for Ms. Mom. With a beautiful patio to gab and eat on, Bodega’s also going to be offering up some sweet treats for the moms in the room.
BOSK at the Shangri-La
Does mom fancy something fancy? Can’t get more upscale than BOSK at the Shangri-La. Offering up a three-course prix fixe meal, spoil mommy dearest with dishes like Nova Scotia scallops, pumpkin agnolotti, and dark chocolate, maple, and hazelnut on cinnamon toast ice cream. Mmm…
We’re all about exotic flavours at brunch time, and DYNE is doing it up with flair for all the mothers out there. A three-course Spanish brunch menu awaits, including warm cocoa rice, huevos rotos, and cassava cake.
Go to the Balkans with mama this Mother’s Day and enjoy the enticing flavours of Eastern Europe at Rakia Bar. With a lovely prix fixe brunch, specials galore, and some li’l treats for the woman who raised ya, Rakia bar is a Mother’s Day best bet.
Another out of the box brunch option, Mideastro Yorkville is pampering your parental princess with a beautiful brunch menu fit for a matriarch. Experience classic brunch dishes made with the roaring flavours of the Mediterranean and Middle East.
Give mom the brunch she deserves at STOCK Restaurant. (Don’t worry, the Donald won’t be around to impede on the gorgeous atmosphere.) With two options, including a family brunch in the Grand Salon, a trip to STOCK won’t soon be forgotten by the lady you love.
FRANK at the AGO
Cultural mothers need not go wanting with a trip to FRANK Restaurant in the AGO. Their Mother’s Day brunch buffet may run you $75 a head, but the divine delights are totally worth it, and letting mom get a glimpse of the bill when you go to pay will ensure some extra milk and cookies on your next visit home. Just sayin’.
Sen5es at the SoHo Metropolitan Hotel
Buffet lovers rejoice, as Sen5es is hosting their Mother’s Day brunch buffet yet again. The lovely digs you’ll be dining in are worthy enough for the loveliest of ladies, but the buffet offerings are what will really impress the woman who gave you life.
Melody Bar at the Gladstone
If your mom likes a li’l drinkie with brunch like the matriarch of the VTV family, treat her to the brunch buffet at the Gladstone where Miss Mom gets a free mimosa for just showing up. Oh! And the actual nosh will be freakin’ stellar to boot!
