Moms are the best, and after this year—boy, oh boy, do they deserve nothing but the best! No matter who you celebrate on Mother’s Day—a mom, wife, stepmom, aunt, grandmother or mother-like figure—treat the special women in your life to local.
Food + Drink
The Lark, Belleville
While you may not be able to treat her to the ambiance of The Lark, she can still experience sipping one of their craft cocktails from home. You can find The Lark’s pre-mixed cocktails (pocket-sized Old Fashioned, Barrel-Aged Margarita and a New Manhattan, just to name a few!) in their online bottle shop. Just add glassware and a creative garnish. Cheers! Pickup and local delivery available.
Lola’s Café, Brighton
Breakfast in bed is a Mother’s Day staple, and Lola’s Cafe does it best. Treat her to French Toast or authentic Montreal Bagels—and don’t forget the fresh, locally roasted coffee on the side! Take-out only.
Activities + Experiences
The Empire Theatre, Belleville
A live show might just be the cure for feeling cooped up at home. Check out The Empire Theatre for tickets to a variety of live-streamed and live (only when it is safe to do so) shows for a fun night in at home.
Lil Crow Cabin, Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory
Is she in need of a getaway? Lil Crow Cabin nestled in Tyendinaga may do the trick. The site offers four unique cabins and pods for the ultimate glamping experience. The on-site Eagle Pod Gallery by co-owner and world-renowned artist David Maracle is a must see! While you can’t book her a visit quite yet, an IOU for a future date is just as good.
