Top 5 Mother’s day experiences at the Bay Centre

Our moms, grandmas, foster moms, stepmoms, surrogate moms, moms-to-be and other mother figures do a lot for us, and Mother’s Day is the perfect time to say thanks.  Just in time for Mother’s Day, we have rounded up the Top 5 Bay Centre Experiences to share with the mother figures in your life.

Whether it’s just you and your mother figure or a group of moms that support each other, brunch just hits differently when you are sharing it with loved ones. We are big fans of Earls Kitchen + Bar’s Happy Hour Brunch offered from 10 am until noon on weekends. Our fave is the prawn benedict paired with a watermelon mimosa enjoyed on their sunny streetside patio for a west coast-inspired brunch. Once complete, roll out the pink carpet with a signature hair styling session for you and yours at Blo Victoria, Vancouver Island’s only blow dry bar–making for the most relaxing start to the day.

2. Enjoy a Social Scoop with Scenic Views

A stroll along the Salish Sea at the inner harbour isn’t complete without a stop for ice cream. If you are exploring downtown Victoria, be sure to check out Marble Slab Creamery at the Bay Centre. With 50 premium ice cream flavours and 32 unlimited mixin options to choose from, there is a perfect flavour combo for all of your loved ones. Enjoy in a cup or level up your experience with a hand-rolled, in-house-made waffle cone dipped in white chocolate. Note: vegan ice cream options are available. 

Seeking nostalgia? Marble Slab Creamery has collaborated with Pop Shoppe pairing their retro craft soda with their ice cream for the most delicious floats.

Marble Slab Creamery is open daily from 11 am to 10 pm. Located at the View Street entrance of the Bay Centre.
