It's not open Sundays, but it's a great place for an early, Saturday Mother's Day.

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 Mother's Day outing.

One for the late risers. A Mothers Milk serves up breakfast all day (accompanied by single origin espresso).

5 restaurants for Mother’s Day Lunch in Adelaide 2018
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 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 not typically open on Sundays but for mum, she'll make an exception with lunch and dinner on the table this year.
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
The Ruby Red Flamingo is the 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 - except for private functions - but it's a great place for an early, Saturday Mother's Day.
142 Tynte St, North Adelaide
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
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 ($70) and be taken on a gastronomic journey from North to South Italy.
Andre's is not usually open on Sundays, but it tends to welcome mama with open arms on Mother's Day. Choose from two sittings (11:30am or 2pm) where you'll be delighted by the Menu Fisso though even more so by the free glass of prosecco. For you and mum, obviously.
