With Mother’s Day brunch around the bend, you’ll want to get your reservation booked ASAP.
Sorry guys, but posting a social media pic with a heartfelt caption simply isn’t enough.
From bubbly to Benedict, we’ve scouted the most noteworthy places in Vancouver that will be sure to pay tribute to all of the mothers in your life.
Looking for a restaurant with variety?
Dockside is your saving grace. Their Marketplace Mother’s Day brunch buffet features seven different stations spanning from a grand chilled display with seasonal shucked oysters, snow crab claws and candied salmon to a butcher’s station with slow-roasted prime rib and herb-roasted chicken.
And if the sun is out, there’s no better place to be than Dockside’s patio or panoramic dining room.
Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar
Boulevard Executive Chef Alex Chen has crafted the most delicious three-course Mother’s Day brunch to celebrate mom with appetizer choices such as Sawmill Bay oysters, asparagus salad with burrata, and smoked black cod and clam chowder, paired with mains like traditional eggs Benedict, Nutella-stuffed French toast, a ’KFC’ Korean Fried Chicken rice bowls and eggs Florentine.
Jules is a true Vancouver jewel that will make toasting to mom easy with a complimentary mimosa for every mother rolling through.
Their authentic brunch, which includes a mouth-watering croque-monsieur, with live piano in the background will make mom feel like you whisked her away to the French countryside for the morning.
Miku’s Mother’s Day feature is the perfect menu for seafood lovers and highlights the best of what Vancouver has to offer. Their Arita Box touches on nine tastes spanning the sea and land, and if you’re still not stuffed, Miku is offering an omakase sushi and sashimi line-up. The chef’s selection of sashimi, Aburi nigiri, specialty oshi, and rolls pairs beautifully with their new location’s gorgeous views of the North Shore and Canada Place inlet.
With its breathtaking patio in the centre of downtown and timeless classic interior, Joe Fortes will have you pampered rain or shine. Renowned for their excellent service and classic menu utilizing local ingredients, you can’t really go wrong here.
Aura Restaurant at Nita Lake Lodge
Thinking of where to plan a staycation for you and mom?
Nita Lake Lodge may be the most picturesque property to do just that away from the chaos of Vancouver’s traffic and terrific drivers (queue sarcasm). Situated right next to a glassy alpine lake nestled within towering mountains, Nita Lake Lodge makes spoiling mom easy – especially with a Mother’s Day Sunday brunch at their Aura Restaurant.
Highlights will include a carved roast beef, Belgian waffle station, and a variety of chilled seafood options such as a West Coast salmon platter, marinated clams, poached prawns, oysters, and mussels.
And if the thought of such a decadent buffet puts you in the most pleasant of food comas, Nita’s proximity to countless miles of world-class outdoor activities should draw you to Whistler village to work off those haute cuisine calories.
