Where to Treat Mama to a Meal This Mother’s Day

What better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than sharing a beautiful meal. It’s right around the corner (May 14!) so if you haven’t considered how you’re going to celebrate mom this year (or how you want to be celebrated!), now’s the time. Here is a list of my favourite places to take Mom for a good meal this Mother’s Day in YGK (and surrounding areas):

Drake Devonshire: I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love Drake Devonshire! It’s in Wellington, making for a day of bonding during the drive (the moments mom’s love most). It’s a stunning venue and the food is top-notch – perfect spot to treat Mom. Read why I love The Devonshire.

Bayview Farm in Collins Bay:
It can be hard to get a reservation at this special spot in Kingston’s west end, however, if you can get in for a nice dinner – do it! Read why I love Bayview.


Dianne’s Fish Bar and Smokehouse: You can’t go wrong with Dianne’s. With the menu’s broad selection, she’s bound to find something she’ll love. Read why I love Dianne’s dinner.
