Celebrate Mother’s Day in Little Italy!
Next sunday, on May 12th what will we celebrate? Mother’s day of course! There’s no better place than Little Italy to pamper your mum.
Whether you want to give her a little gift or organize a full day with her, we have what you need!
Little Italy's gift for your dear mum!
If you want to show your mum how much you love her, here are our suggestions for little something that we believe she’ll appreciate!
Blanc Confetti on St-Laurent boulevard is THE perfect shop to look for a little gift : whether it’s a nice card to give her, a beautiful poster to decorate a wall or a perfumed candle for her relaxation you won’t exit this shop with empty hands!
If your mother has a DIY soul, take her to Palais des Bulles on St-Zotique : different products are available to transform her old furniture and you can also offer her a workshop to make her improve her skills!
For cosmetic and health care, you mother will be charmed by Coop Coco : there’s a big choice among all natural products to make your own beauty products!
Stay classy and offer her a beautiful jewel! Little Italy has many jewelry stores that showcase the italian savoir-faire : the Bijouterie italienne on St-Zotique, bijouterie St-Dominic or Oritalia on St-Laurent boulevard!
A full day in Little Italy... a perfect way to thank her!
Rather than a gift why not spending a day with mum and give her a good time.
We suggest you to start the day with a little caffè ! So many options are available : Le Café Saint-Henri next to Jean-Talon market will please her with they great choices of coffee and the charming déco! Or, take her to the legendary and historic Caffè Italia with the classic italian ambience.
Then, invite her for a tete-à-tete at Impasto, where the italian fine cuisine will delight her taste! Or, if you look more for a quick stop, Porchetta is the place: order their famous pork sandwiches with a chinotto and keep on your exploration!
After eating, you can visit the church Notre-Dame-de-la-défense and admire its beautiful frescoes! Keep walking towards the market and she’ll fall under the charm of the Art Déco buildings such as the Fire Station and the old meat inspection building!
