5 cafes for Mother’s Day Breakfast in Adelaide


Peel St

Simple food, made from seasonal ingredients and full of love. Peel St is a relative newcomer to the area, and offers walk-in customers a casual and atmospheric place to munch down on creatively prepared dishes inspired by international flavors from Asia, the Middle East, and beyond. It's not open Sundays, but it's a great place for an early, Saturday Mother's Day.

9 Peel Street, Adelaide


Cafe Troppo

Fair-trade coffee, biodynamic milk, free-range eggs, and sumptuous seasonal ingredients await you for a friendly and delicious breakfast in this community focussed and central cafe. Cafe Troppo is situated in the eco-housing building in Whitmore Park and prides itself on its sustainable business model.

42 Whitmore Square, Adelaide


Mister Sunshine Cafe

Centrally located on George Street, Mister Sunshine Cafe is a great choice for breakfast. An example? What about brioche French toast with poached fruits, labneh, toasted crumble, and maple syrup? Perfect for an indulgent Mothers Day outing.

32 George Street, Thebarton


A Mothers Milk

One for the late risers. A Mothers Milk serves up breakfast all day (accompanied by single origin espresso). Follow it with a homemade tart. The perfect wake-up if you’ve been enjoying South Australia’s most famous export the night before.

105 Unley Street, Unley


The Little Eastern

The ingredients are seasonal, local, and organic; and the coffee bean is created especially by Melbourne based Dimattina. If you like your cup frothy and creamy, choose from un-homogenised Tweedvale milk; or almond, soy, and coconut. Try their speciality: folded Lebanese-style pizza called manushi.

389 Magill Road, St Morris

5 restaurants for Mother’s Day Lunch in Adelaide 2016



Whisk her away on Mother's Day to the beautiful McLaren Vale region for a lunch filled with luxury.

The Coriole restaurant offers courtyard lunches over the weekends with share plates of high quality produce being the standard. Bookings are essential, as is a glass of their finest. This is a vineyard, after all!

Chaffeys Road, McLaren Vale, South Australia



Orana's newest little sister walks in her footsteps but with a more casual gait. She's a bistro with an evolving menu that uses native ingredients to produce simple, yet flavoursome dishes, to celebrate the land. She's open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week.

Oh, and did we mention she knows a thing or two about wine? Ask your server for a recommendation though, in all honestly, it's all good.

285 Rundle Street, Adelaide


Ruby Red Flamingo

The Ruby Red Flamingo is the new go-to Italian in Adelaide, giving a fresh twist to much-loved classics. The menu is always changing to reflect the season, and the chef’s mood. It's not open Sundays, but it's a great place for an early, Saturday Mother's Day.

142 Tynte St, North Adelaide


Hentley Farm Restaurant

Okay… so this one’s not strictly in Adelaide but you’ve never been to Barossa then now is the time to visit one of Australia’s most famous locations. The wine at Hentley Farm is, of course, some of the best the region has to offer and the degustation menu is an experience in itself.

Gerald Roberts Rd, Seppeltsfield


Andre’s Cucina and Polenta Bar

If you would rather a late lunch, Andre’s is another one for classic Italian fare, served up in a classy, warm trattoria style space. Give yourself to the all-knowing staff and order the fixed menu ($65) and be taken on a gastronomic journey from North to South Italy.

Andre's is not usually open on Sundays, but it's welcoming mama with open arms on Mother's Day. No special treats today, just good your tried and true menu. Lunch is from 11:30am-3pm and dinner from 6pm. Bookings recommended.

94 Frome Street, Adelaide
