“Dining out for brunch is a long-standing tradition for many Canadians who celebrate Mother’s Day,” said Ziv Schierau, Head of National Accounts for OpenTable Canada. “From brunch favourites to more nuanced takes on classic offerings, these establishments are a great choice to gather with the family and celebrate Mom.”

Apparently, Canadians love to dine out on Mother’s Day. According to the OpenTable diner data from Mother’s Day 2016, there was a 226% increase in reservations booked as compared to an average Sunday. This means, not sruprisingly, that Mother’s Day is one of the busiest Sundays of the year to dine out.

The 50 Best Restaurants for Brunch in Canada list is generated solely from the over 480,000 user supplied restaurant reviews collected from verified OpenTable diners between March 1, 2016 and February 28, 2017.

All restaurants with a minimum “overall” score and number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. Qualifying restaurants were then scored and sorted according to the percentage of reviews for which “great for brunch” was selected as a special feature.
