Brunch—like twilight, sporks, friends with benefits, and so many other things that make life worth living—is not quite one thing and not quite another. Celebrate everyone's favourite mutant mealtime with today’s Groupon: for $48, you get a Mother's Day brunch for two at The Westin Nova Scotian (a $95.64 value) on Hollis Street. Today's Groupon is valid on Sunday, May 8 for the following seating times: 11 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 2:30 p.m., or 3 p.m. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
A CAA/AAA Four Diamond Award winner, The Westin Nova Scotian serves a brunch befitting its status as a historic landmark amid an atmospheric waterfront setting. During the brunch, moms get treated like reality TV stars at the airport, receiving a flower and chocolate upon entering, followed by their choice of complimentary mimosa, Caesar cocktail, or glass of house wine. Seven pavilions wait to fill plates with delicious fare, including a seafood station stocked with platters of smoked fish, mussels, crab, and peel-and-eat shrimp. The breakfast pavilion features omelette and waffle stations alongside rows of fresh fruit, which diners can wash down with a glass of obligatory breakfast meats. After sampling at least one of everything, brunchers grab sacrificial pieces of cake, pie, and pastry to pay homage to the almighty chocolate fountain. Diners also enjoy more benefits, including live music and giveaways such as a crystal bud vase, gift certificates to additional brunches, and passes to Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Club.
