Mother's Day 2015

POSTED ON 5/7/2015 9:20:07 AM

Unique dining activities to take mom to this mother’s day.

Moms are special, and we recognize them even more than usual on the second Sunday of May every year. However all moms are different. They come in all different shapes and sizes. Some people have two. Some people have the aunt or grandmother that have been there for everything and deserve recognition as a mom too. Some don’t have a mom around and choose to recognize their dad on this day. There are even those mother in-laws that some have to deal with. Whatever the mom, they are all unique and should be treated that way. Here are a few different dining experiences that you can take your mom to this Mother’s Day.

Bring it back old school.

Take mom to Cosmo’s Diner this Sunday to give her a classic diner experience for breakfast or brunch. Cosmo’s diner in Thorold retains that old diner feel from the 50s with classic pop art on the walls, bright colours and the whole shebang.  For mother’s day, they will have two specials for the day.

“The Mediterranean Eggs Benedict with grilled tomatoes, fresh spinach, Kalamata olives and feta cheese will top off our list of 14 Eggs Benedict choices to choose from.”
 And if mom has a sweet tooth the
“Stuffed French Toast selection will feature Nutella and Bananas sandwich between two pieces of bread, dipped in French toast batter and grilled then sprinkled with icing sugar.”

Show her some love.

Back in February, we wrote our MOST ROMANTIC RESTAURANTS article for Valentine ’s Day. We’ve gotten a lot of feedback from one select restaurant on that list. That would be Pier 61. It was such a great experience for the romantics that we have to include them on this list as well. You couldn’t love anyone more than mom. So take her to one of the most romantic restaurants in St. Catharines.
Here are the specials for Mother’s Day by Pier 61.

For mom and son or moms who like beer.

Not all moms like the fluffy lovey stuff or a trip down memory lane. For those moms, Oast House Brewers is having a special Mother’s Day in the Hay Loft for Brunch. With a rustic feel and a vineyard view mom will be treated to a choice of two brunch specials prepared by Chef Adam form El Gastronomo Vagabundo Food Tuck after a brewery tour, tasting and light education. The tour starts at noon so make sure to reserve your spot. See Jaywalk events page for more information and to reserve.

Moms who take a swing at it.

If Mother’s Day is a family occasion, make a reservation at the Swing Bar & Grill in Welland. Never heard of Swing? It’s the restaurant located in Hunter’s Pointe Golf Club. Course side view, centrally located in the Niagara Region, great interior and accommodating of families of all ages, the buffet event being hosted will leave everyone satisfied. To reserve a spot see our Hunter’s Pointe event listing.

If staying in is your mom's thing, then make sure to check out D'Lish Tasteful Gifting. With D'Lish, you get unique gifts for mom and satisfy her foodie nature. Our personal fave is the Tea and Honey collection.
