There’s no better time to rent an exotic car and hit the town than Mother’s Day, and what better way to show your appreciation than by taking your mom out to some of the best restaurants, shopping centers, coffee shops, and spas in California? A little bit of planning can go a long way, especially if you’re just visiting Los Angeles. It can be hard to find the best places to eat, shop, and relax, so to make planning your Mother’s Day as easy as possible, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite places to visit during a perfect Mother’s Day getaway.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why not do it in style? At Canele, you can have a late breakfast that you won’t be forgetting any time soon. With a wide selection of indulgent and unique breakfast items, this charming little brunch stop is full of surprises. Are you a fan of bacon? Canele goes the extra mile, curing all bacon in-house for an unbeatable bacon-eating experience. Small, quiet, and cozy, Canele may not seem like much, but in their modest kitchen, some of the best food in Los Angeles is prepared.
After a bit of bacon and eggs, it’s time for a mid-day boost of energy, and you know what that means: coffee. Before you and your mom hop back in your luxury car rental and hit the stores, consider grabbing a pick-me-up at Andante Coffee Roaster, especially if you’re a coffee-lover. With addicting lattes and top-notch cappuccinos, there’s no better way to enjoy a mid-day energy boost. Andante Coffee also has a homey and inviting atmosphere, perfect for relaxing, catching up, and deciding what to do next.
Of course, no Mother’s Day would be complete without a visit to one of Los Angeles’s many iconic locations, and luckily, our next stop is right in the heart of Tinseltown. Hollywood and Highland is a titanic shopping and entertainment complex with a diverse and all-inclusive selection of high-end shops as well as entertainment opportunities for the whole family.

It’s difficult to choose, isn’t it? And be careful not to spend too much time at the Hollywood and Highland, because there’s more on the way!
Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to treat your mom (and yourself) to a relaxing afternoon at the spa, and one of the best spas in Los Angeles is actually called One the Spa. While the name may be a little strange, this spa has so much to offer, including signature treatments that can reinvigorate, refresh, and relax. Massages, skincare, manicuring, and much more is available at One the Spa, but your night still isn’t complete without an unforgettable dinner.
Formal yet relaxed, Providence might just be the best restaurant in Los Angeles. With a wide variety of sensational seafood dishes on offer, it’s hard to put the culinary excellent of Providence into words, but you won’t be disappointed. A haven for quiet conversation, home of some of the world’s most divine food, and the perfect backdrop for a memory that will last a lifetime, a night at Providence might just be the highlight of the season.
