Happy Mother’s Day!

Moms are our personal cheerleaders, math tutors, taxi-drivers, keepers of secrets and our role models. They are super moms who constantly prove they can do it all. This week it’s easy to show your mother (through food and drink of course!) just how thankful you are for her unconditional love and endless support. Cheers to you, mom!


Start off with an early brunch on Saturday at The Canteen in Dartmouth (think Breakfast Pizza or Challah French Toast).  Or treat your mom on Sunday at Seasons by Atlantica – be sure to try their omelette station and smoothie shooters.

After brunch has settled, head to Morris East to enjoy their Mother’s Day dinner menu. Sip on their refreshing spring fever drink and indulge in their 3-course special menu, with options like a kale salad to start, succulent seafood pasta and lemon tart for dessert.

Change up Mother’s Day with a “stay-cation.” Head to the beautiful South Shore and visit Atlantica Oak Island Resort or White Point Beach Resort for a delicious brunch, breathtaking views and to show mom how much you appreciate her.

Fleur De Sel is also putting on a special brunch this year, just for Mother’s Day. You might be wondering what makes it so special? Trust us, Snow Crab Benedict or Brioche French toast with fresh fruit is only the beginning.

Amherst Shore Country Inn is serving a 4-course Mother’s Day dinner. Starting with a warm carrot soup, with undertones of maple and cumin, followed by a crisp salad with bacon and buttermilk dressing. For the main, decide between salmon or chicken and your choice of lemon pie, or a decadent mocha cheesecake for dessert. Does anything say I love you better than a great meal?


To our Cape Breton moms, a trip to Kiju’s is on the agenda with your choice of a breakfast buffet or 3 course dinner. Your breakfast options are endless-satisfy your sweet tooth or savoury side with berry trifle and mac and cheese. For dinner, options include local seafood, delicious soups, and an array of desserts.



Help your mom take her mind off of her hectic lifestyle and head to Liscombe Lodge. Nestled in the forest, she’ll receive the peace and quiet she deserves. After a plentiful buffet diner, you’ll be sure to leave feeling stuffed.
