9 editor-approved Mother's Day activities in Canada

Mother's Day date: Coburg

"There's nothing my mom and I enjoy more than Sunday brunch at the Woodlawn Inn in Cobourg. The dining room is ultra quaint, the gardens are gorgeous and the hotel is close enough to Lake Ontario that we can take a stroll along the boardwalk after we eat. The best part? We can chow down on the dessert table and then get ice cream at the beach!" –Sarah Thompson, content producer READ MORE: 20+ perfect Mother's Day gift ideas

Mother's Day date: Simcoe County

"Every year my brothers and I choose a different brunch spot to take our mom – we’re Italian, so all celebrations require a meal (and dessert). Last year we headed to the Nottawasaga Inn, it’s a pretty drive out of the city and we drank champagne and caught up as a family. I always look forward to Mother’s Day for that time together." –Ava Baccari, assistant fashion editor READ MORE: How to experience the unexpected Zen of a staycation

Mother's Day date: Montreal

"Mom will be charmed by French pastry shop Maison Christian Faure in Old Montreal, which serves up sweet treats like decadent chocolate-filled eclairs and a passion fruit raspberry tart that you’ll swoon over. If you’re looking for something savoury, the lunch menu includes a perfect salade niçoise, while brunch is an Instagram-worthy affair. (Don’t forget to save room for some Madeleines.)" –Lisa Guimond, fashion features editor READ MORE: A food tour of Quebec City

Mother's Day date: St. John's

"If I could take my mom anywhere this Mother's Day, I'd whisk her off to the east coast for brunch at the rustic Mallard Cottage in St. John's, Newfoundland. I'm dying to try their homemade buttermilk biscuit breakfast sandwich – it would be as much a treat for me as it would be for her." –Charlotte Herrold, associate fashion editor READ MORE: The best travel gift ideas
