Mothers day brunch has been a long running tradition in our family. As far back as I can remember, these precious Sundays have been spent on a patio in the Byward market. There so many great places in Ottawa to share a meal and a laugh with the most important women in your life. Here are some of our favourites:
We spent one mothers day walking around down-town trying to find a restaurant that would take walk-ins, had high-chairs, and a patio, and we stumbled upon this gem. They have a gorgeous rooftop patio/lounge and the food was awesome! We ended up returning the next year again, and it was every bit as awesome.
This year they are serving Mother's Day Brunch from 9am-4pm. Visit their website here and see their menu.

Nothing says mother's day like eating heart shaped pancakes in an old farmhouse in the woods. This little place is going to be packed, so call right now if you are hoping to get in. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is perfect, and they know a thing or two about catering to kids. Your mom will be very impressed with this choice! Check out our review for more info
Im hoping that the service here has improved since our review on it last year, because this would make a wonderful spot for brunch. The food is incredible and you get your own personal buffet brought to your table on a big board. The novelty of this unique way of serving and the delicious assortment of items, makes this one of our picks. Check out our review here.
Classy, delicious, and surprisingly kid friendly! They're brunch is delicious, and the place is quiet enough to catch up with your loved ones. Check out our review here
Baker Street Cafe
If you aren't afraid to wait in line for a while, this place is worth a little wait. We haven't been since before Toast Under The Table was created, so no review yet, but I wont forget the portobello mushroom benedict that I tasted there a few years back. You may want to bring a booster seat with you, since they will definitely be in high demand on Sunday, but they are quite child friendly, once you get seated. Check out their Urbanspoon page for more info.
Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful moms out there!
