Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 13, and a gourmet Mother’s Day Brunch is a time-honoured way to kick off the day’s celebrations. There are lots of options for Mother’s Day Brunch in Vancouver, but each of my top five picks has something special to offer Mom on her big day, from exceptional cuisine to five-star views to a unique mountain-cabin setting. Just don’t wait to make plans: Many of these brunches sell out fast!

5 Top Spots for Mother’s Day Brunch 2012 Vancouver – May 13, 2012

1. 2012 Mother’s Day Brunch at Cafe Pacifica at the Pan Pacific Vancouver
One of the Vancouver’s top spots for holiday brunches, Cafe Pacifica’s 2012 Mother’s Day Brunch has sold out for the last six years in a row (so make your reservations early). The lavish buffet includes Black Angus beef carpaccio, pheasant and pistachio terrine, chilled BC oysters, Kadai chicken curry, and maple-cured sablefish with yuzu-infused butter sauce, plus a Kids Buffet for younger, pickier eaters. Cost: $79 for adults, $71 for seniors, $39.50 for children ages 6-12; free for kids 5 and under.

2. Mother’s Day Brunch at Grouse Mountain
Another popular Mother’s Day Brunch that sells out quickly, this three-course prix fixe menu at The Observatory includes a choice of Duck Confit Benedict or Seafood Crepes (among other entree options) for adults and a kids’ menu for the younger set. After brunch, Mom and her guests can enjoy a day of activities atop Grouse Mountain. Cost (includes general admission): $45 for adults; $24 for kids.

3. Mother’s Day Prime Rib & Pasta Bar Brunch at Cloud 9
The Empire Landmark Hotel’s famous revolving restaurant, Cloud 9, hosts an annual Mother’s Day brunch that pairs traditional brunch options like Eggs Benedict, omelet and waffle stations with (just like the name says) Prime Rib and a Seafood & Pasta bar. Cost: $39.95 for people 11 – 59; $29.95 for seniors 60+; $19.95 for kids 4 – 10; free for kids 3 and under.

4. Mother’s Day Brunch at Bridges Restaurant
Treat Mom to a yummy brunch of Grand Marnier French Toast or Turkey Sausage Hash (just two options from this prix fixe menu) at Bridges, then spend the day exploring Granville Island. Cost: $38.

5. Swallow Tail Supper Club Mother’s Day 2 for 1 Wild Edibles Trip
Looking for something different to do with Mom this Mother’s Day? How about a guided tour through the forest, to learn about native edibles like fiddleheads, plantain, and Miners Lettuce, followed by a gourmet lunch at a mountain cabin? Lunch includes home-made Kamut Bread, wild BC mushrooms, fiddleheads and dandelion, plus a delicious herbal tea made with the wild plants from the forest tour. Cost: $69 for Mom and a “plus-one.”

  8. Great suggestions guys, but every Mother’s Day I like to take my mom (actually, my whole family goes most of the times) on a short trip in the woods or wherever is quiet and we have the best times there
