Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 11, and Toronto’s best brunch spots are filling up fast. After all, how better to thank the woman who birthed you than to ply her with pastries, prosecco and a gut-busting midday meal? For all you last-minute planners, we pulled together a list of spots that aren’t yet booked up, with options to suit every style of matriarch. Here, nine Toronto destinations for Mother’s Day brunch.
Chef Rob Gentile’s grown-up snack bar doesn’t take reservations, but his decadent Italian brunch is worth the wait. Choices range from crunchy cream-filled cannoli to chocolate-toped Tuscan crepes infused with pig’s blood, and the cocktail list is similarly inventive. We suggest the Mimosa Rosa, an effervescent mix of prosecco, grapefruit and orange aperol.
