Mother’s Day is upon us which means it’s time to spoil your mom. Brunch is always a great option, allowing you to spend some quality time with your mother, perhaps explore a new neighbourhood, and eat some delicious food.
Check out this list of brunch spots to take your mom this Mother’s Day.
Sparrow is a must-visit for the trendy mom. This cozy, hipster brunch spot in the Mile End serves up breakfast in an inviting atmosphere. Sparrow is all about elevating classic dishes to a whole other level, and you can see that in every item on the menu, from the fresh eggs with sage and grilled tomato to the shakshuka with merguez and feta.
Another popular option is the Turkish Breakfast Plate, which comes with flatbread, walnuts, tomatoes, olives, dried apricots, and multiple homemade spreads. Spots are limited so be sure to show up early on Sunday, or you can pretty much guarantee a line out the door.
What better way to celebrate your mom than by taking her to one of the most popular brunch spots in Montreal? Le Passé Composé is pretty much on every list of the best brunch spots in the city, and for good reason.
From the creative and seasonal smoothies (raspberry beet or mango lime smoothie, anyone?) to their majorly drool-worthy French toast (it doesn’t look like much but take a bite, and you’ll fall in love) to the tastiest breakfast potatoes in the city, Le Passé Composé is guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser.
For a chic outing, treat your mother to brunch at Foiegwa. Not only is the restaurant itself totally Instagrammable, but the dishes are insanely tasty, and per the name, foie gras can be added to any item on the menu. If foie gras-topped chicken and waffles don’t say “Happy Mother’s Day,” what does?
They also have a fantastic brunch cocktails list, so this is the place to treat your mom to a boozy breakfast. Cocktails include the Foiegwa Spritz (Blood Orange, Saint-Germain, prosecco, and vodka) and the Garibaldi (Luxardo Bitter, fresh squeezed orange juice, and orgeat).
Specializing in upscale British-inspired cuisine, Lawrence is a refined, classy brunch spot to take your mom for Mother’s Day. Lawrence is located in the Mile End borough of Montreal, right on Saint Laurent Boulevard, and offers a range of delicious brunch dishes that are perfect for sharing.
Classics like French toast, smoked salmon with scrambled eggs, and hash browns are on the menu, as well as specialties like the apple ricotta pancakes or the meat pie with house-made ketchup. Whatever you do, you have to try their freshly-baked scones which will transport you straight to a tea shop in London, and the donuts, filled with Nutella, lemon custard, and fresh berry jam.
