With Mother’s Day not too far away, it’s time to get those plans ironed out. For something far superior than a bouquet of flowers or a picture frame, treat your mom to the gift she really wants: time spent together catching up, reminiscing and creating beautiful memories… amidst fancy finger foods and cloth napkins, naturally.
Tables are still available at MoRoCo Chocolat – but they’re going like hotcakes! If you’re interested in securing a table, we suggest you call to reserve immediately.
This fabulous jewel in the heart of Yorkville – with its soft jazz and modern French décor – is hosting a special Mother’s Day Tea on May 12, with sittings at 10am, 12pm, 2:30pm and 5pm. For $63 per person, you’ll get champagne, an appetizer (quiche or gourmet mac and cheese) and a three-tiered tray of finger sandwiches, scones, mini pastries, and desserts. Without champagne, the cost is $55.

If you can’t make it on the actual day of, don’t fret. T-Buds, a bright, attractive lounge in the North end of the city, is declaring all of May Mother’s Month! With use of promo code MDS20, receive 20% off full afternoon tea (as well as a special surprise for mom) on any Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. Reservations are required beforehand.

For a more traditional high tea experience, we suggest securing a spot at Etobicoke’s The Victoria Garden Tea Room. With the option of going either Saturday or Sunday for sittings at either 11am or 2:30pm ($38.40 per head, plus a present for mummy dearest, of course), they offer a charming gift shop filled with unique collectables and items for tea lovers. And if you have fine china you no longer want (even if it’s mismatched), bring it in and their buyer will offer you an amount for some or all of your pieces.
