Do More Than Brunch This Mother’s Day in Halifax


One brunch to celebrate mothers just doesn’t seem like enough—even if there are mimosas. That is why we have created a guide to treat your mother to an extra special weekend on the historic Halifax waterfront.

Premiere Suites Atlantic has beautifully furnished units in Bishop’s Landing that can be rented like a hotel—only better because you will feel like home. Whether the mom you are treating is your wife, mother, mother-in-law, or mother figure, ensure they have a worry-free stay right in the heart of the action by staying in a Premiere Suite.

Spend Memorable Moments and Get Luxurious Gifts For Mom

Impress mom by taking her for a memorable dinner to Little Oak, which has just been named one of Canada’s Top Restaurants! First, stop at MXM Fashion Studio so she can pick out a classy yet modern outfit at the boutique to wear out to dinner.

If you want a gift that will truly wow her, visit Frida Fine Jewellery to order a custom piece of luxurious jewellery or one of the stunning pieces in store. They were recently selected by British Vogue to be featured as part of their Editor’s Choice Jewellery Designer Profiles.

A crowd pleaser gift for mom is always a great bottle of wine—there’s no better place than Bishop’s Cellar. Let them recommend a bottle that will fit the occasion and the palate of your mom—such as one of the new rosé wines in stock.

Participate in Open City Activities on Saturday

Take mom for an outing to enjoy the activities of Open City—the annual event that celebrates everything local—which is happening on Saturday, May 11. Some of the shops at Bishop’s Landing are participating in the event by offering discounts and special menu options.

Celebrate local at Bishop’s Cellar with a free Tidal Bay Blind Tasting from 11:00 AM until 3:00 PM. Test your senses and taste an entire flight of local favourite: Tidal Bay. Make your guesses and fill out a ballot for a chance to win a $100 gift card to Bishop’s Cellar.

Sea Smoke will have special menus during Open City, and Sugah! Confectionary and Ice Cream Emporium will be having exciting specials on their ice cream and candy. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for more details as they are unveiled.
