Best Things to do for Mother's Day in Vancouver

The Ultimate in Safety, Service and Satisfaction

Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, and you may still be wondering what to do for the special lady in your life. Maybe you’ve already picked out the perfect card, and flowers or jewelry are always safe bets. Perhaps you have planned to bring Mom breakfast in bed. But if you would like to do something different and extra special this year and you are a resident or are planning to visit Vancouver on May 14th, we have some ideas on how you can spend some extraordinary time dining, shopping and enjoying a stress-free exploration of our great city. Let our safe and professional chauffeurs with our Vancouver car service get you anywhere that you would like to go next Sunday in style.

Mother’s Day Dining

Patisserie Fur Elise is an elegant and delightful place to enjoy afternoon tea with mom. Set in a Queen Ann Victorian home setting, this century-old pastry shop is a relaxing little oasis in the middle of bustling downtown Vancouver.

Dockside Restaurant offers an expertly prepared brunch menu with the most stunning panoramic views of the North Shore mountains and Yaletown above the False Creek and Granville Island waterfront.


London Heritage Farm is hosting its Mother’s Day Tea and 10th Annual Plant Sale. Instead of buying your mother cut flowers, why not let her pick out some perennials, annuals, herbs or vegetables to take home and enjoy for months ahead? There will also be a drawing to win a free hanging basket. High tea will be served from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. and is very popular, so reservations are recommended.

For the most abundant choices in shops that Vancouver has to offer, venture over to the Robson Street shopping district. Robson Street is a great place to let your mom pick out her own gift, with over 100 stores including an indoor mall, department stores such as Nordstrom, high-end shoes and accessories as well as plenty of restaurants and coffee shops where you and mom can rest and catch up on your day’s purchases.

Tours and Gardens

VanDusen Botanical Garden in May is a beautiful celebration of florals in bloom. Invite your mom to stroll among the lilacs, azaleas, rhododendrons and dogwood trees. There will be live music to add to the sensory experience of this 55-acre garden park. Truffles Café will be open if you would like to take a break for a light lunch or snack as well as Shaughnessy Restaurant if you would like something more substantial.

Reifel Bird Sanctuary in Delta is an experience like no other for bird watchers. Open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., this 5-km trail through trees and marshes offers scenic views and observation of thousands of birds that migrate here each year. Expect to see sandpipers, hawks, eagles and osprey this time of year.

We would love the privilege of serving you and your mother on this Mother’s Day. Our helpful and courteous chauffeurs are sure to help make your day a memorable one this year. Please call us to reserve your limo in Vancouver by making a reservation today.
