      Why have you recommended two restaurants on the Adelaide Mother’s Day 2015 lunch list that aren’t open on Sunday’s?

        Hi AG,

        Thanks for your question!

        We like to keep our options open and understand that Mother’s Day can be a busy one for everyone, so we’ve included some of our favourite restaurants and cafes that you celebrate Mother’s Day with her any day of the week. As an aside, we’ve now added a note to these in case you’re wishing to celebrate on the Sunday.

        Cheers,

        Stephanie
