Wanted: Brunch Buffet for Mother's Day...fancy pants please!


I am looking to give my mum the best, fanciest, brunch in Toronto. I understand it won't come cheap but this is a special occasion and money is no object.
The only places I would not go to are:
- Bloor St Diner - This is my regular sunday haunt and I want something 'special'
- King Eddy - Went last month and was not overwhelmed.

Any place else is fair game, though I imagine nothing says fancy like a luxury hotel.

Ok, ready, set, go!

  1. err... Windsor Arms? Get them to valet park you for that extra luxe feeling. Though, I haven't been in a long long long time. I remember it fondly, especially the giant bowl of iles flottants...

        it was a reaaaaallly long time ago that I went though. We're talking 5 years since I last went and longer since the iles flottants... just as an fyi! You could always ask and see if they still serve it though!

        2. if King Eddy doesnt do it for you, then basically in Toronto, for what you want, you're outa luck, and would have to 'settle'.

            1. What about Casa Loma?

                You know, I thought of Casa Loma, but am afraid it will be chock a block full of parents out with kids and a little too noisy. is it different on Mother's Day?
