Mothers Day in Glasgow

Mother’s Day is fast approaching and what better way to celebrate your mum or mothering figure than to spend some special time with them. In Glasgow, there are several options for celebrating Mother’s Day, from café to restaurant, and here’s a few of them.

The Ivy Glasgow

Glasgow’s Ivy Buchanan Street offers relaxed, sophisticated all-day dining. Whether you’re interested in classic British food, Asian-inspired cuisine, or vegan or vegetarian dishes, you’ll find something for everyone. In addition to the main restaurant, you’ll also find two onyx bars, as well as the glamour of private dining for those special occasions.

Rawnchy Cafe

The Rawnchy Cafe is a plant-based café on Bellgrove Street in Dennistoun. They make crazy delicious vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, refined sugar-free raw cakes (Raw-nchy: get it?), soups and sandwiches. A lovely café for any vegan mum’s day adventures.

Mackintosh at the Willow

In 1903, Miss Cranston opened the Willow Tea Rooms Building, designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and after an extensive restoration, the Willow Tea Rooms reopened on 7 September 2018. Mackintosh at the Willow (the original willow tearooms building) is situated on Sauchiehall Street, not far from the Glasgow School of Art, also designed by Mackintosh. Now you can dine in this historic tea room, explore the visitor center and retail store.

Finnieston Fez

A Moroccan café with a twist, Finnieston Fez offers exotic coffee blends, authentic teas and traditional treats so you can escape your routine and relax in this little Moroccan oasis. Located in the heart of the Finnieston area of Glasgow, this relatively new and colourful café serves Moroccan cuisine (flavours of Morocco), and Moroccan inspired recipes to Glasgow (old and new, traditional and with a twist too).


Wine bar and restaurant Hooligan is located on Lynedoch Street, just off the Charing Cross end of Woodlands Road. Based in a former tenement flat with high ceilings, parquet floors, cornicing, and large windows, the restaurant is next door to the stylish cocktail bar Fly South, a great place to enjoy a drink before dinner. Small dishes are on the menu at Hooligan, all of which are creatively presented and created using the best Scottish ingredients.


Citation is an iconic Neoclassical landmark dating back nearly two centuries. Located on Wilson Street in the Merchant City it was originally the Sheriff Court building, designed by Clarke & Bell in the mid-19th century. The prominent sandstone columns dominate the exterior of this B-listed building, and are dressed in fairy lights to create a photogenic location. They are holding a special Mother’s Day afternoon tea and also a Mother’s Day roast in the evening.

Champagne Central

Champagne Central is on Gordon Street, within the Grand Central Hotel which is located at the entrance to Glasgow’s Central Station. Step back in time in the Champagne bar, overlooking Central Station, and enjoy the ambiance of the golden age of travel with a touch of style and charm. From cocktails for two to a Champagne afternoon tea, they have something special for this Mother’s Day.
