Mother’s Day Brunch Buffets in Metro Vancouver in 2023

Mother's Day Brunch

One of the best ways to treat your mother special on Mother’s Day is to take her out for a brunch buffet at one of Vancouver’s best restaurants.

Due to COVID-19, indoor dine-in Mother’s Day brunches weren’t possible in 2020 or 2021, at least not in their usual capacities. Brunches did happen in 2022, although many didn’t happen in their usual buffet-style formats.

Below is information about some of our favourite Mother’s Day brunch options. 2023 menus and prices are listed for most restaurants.

For ideas on other things to do with Mom and what to give her, see our article about Mother’s Day Gift Ideas.
