Where are you taking your Mum to breakfast this Mother’s Day? Hint: you’ll find your answer here.
What is it about Mother's Day and taking your Mum out to breakfast? It just works. It feels right. And not least because breakfast is the greatest meal of the day…
Mother's Day falls on May 10th this year, which means you still have a bit of time to plan how you're going to spend it. We've compiled a guide to the best of the best breakfasts in Sydney to take her to this Sunday.
She might be disappointed in your life choices, career, significant other, and dress sense the other 364 days of the year, but she won't be disappointed in your choice of breakfast. Winning!
BONUS: Why not surprise mum by picking her up in a swanky car? UBER can take to and from your brekky spot without blowing your breakfast budget.
It's a big, breezy establishment that's got the whole shebang: cafe, bakery, deli, and grocery. On the more traditional end of Shuk's breakfast menu you have silky smooth eggs and fresh ocean trout, while the more daring favours a few variations of the Israeli classic: shakshuka. Perfect for mid morning brunching.
You have to love a place that has a dedicated brunch menu. Offerings here are along the lines of fluffy pancakes, quinoa salad, and their famous sliders done breakfast style (read: plenty of crispy bacon). Go all out and grab a cocktail or two, because who says breakfast can't be boozy?
The only downside to Three Blue Ducks is that they don't take bookings for breakfast. If your Mum doesn't mind a short wait, however, you can be feasting on a menu of poached eggs, bircher muesli, and king salmon in no time. If you've got a sweet tooth going on, their orange and yoghurt pancakes is something special that only makes an appearance on weekends.
Definitely not your traditional breakfast, these guys are all about the healthy twists; here pancakes are made with peas, and served with avocado, feta and mint. The place has that rustic vibe that seems to just make the food taste twice as good.
Bootsdarling does all day breakfast, so you can tick getting up early off the list. It's a quaint joint with hearty food and quality coffee, where an open kitchen means watching somebody else poach your eggs and slice your bacon. Actually, Bootsdarling is a touch more exciting than your average cafe; we'd recommend the Boots Baked Eggs for feta, flaked almonds, and mint with your eggs and baked beans.
Their new plaything The Potting Shed might be getting all the attention of late, but we're not forgetting about The Grounds anytime soon. Who could, when you have a wholesome and rustic menu to choose from, rich coffee to down, and a petting zoo to fawn over?
Healthy-minded mothers with raw or vegan (or both!) requirements can tuck into the delicious creations that come out of Sadhana Kitchen. Think zucchini lasagnas, cocowhip desserts and superfood smoothies to get your tastebuds watering.
Take it to the next level with a decadent vegan high tea (pictured, available 10am only) or degustation. Go on. She's worth it!
If your Mum fits into the 'loves Chai tea' category, you'll have to take her along to Two Chaps. (Don't worry, coffee fits into the equation, too.) Here, you've got a seasonally driven menu that changes daily, so come in with an open mind – just don't expect any meat. In need of a present? Pick up a bag of their coffee and chai to take home with you.
The Stables' new offering in Newtown is swiftly gaining a separate, loyal clientele since opening earlier this year, with locals popping in for steaming hot coffee and smashed avocado breakfasts. If your Mum is more inclined to eat in the great outdoors, ask 212 Blu for a picnic pack and take breakfast down to Camperdown Memorial Park.
The only thing you won't find here is a boring breakfast. Toast comes with figs and ricotta, eggs come with basil, celery, and eggplant, and you're more likely to find smoked chili and chorizo in the brekkie roll than bacon. Stand out coffee is, of course, de rigueur.
Aside from eating in one of the most beautiful spaces in Sydney, you'll be dining on a top quality breakfast that's still within price range. The breakfast crumble with poached rhubarb and Earl Grey custard is delectably sweet, while corn fritters, sardines, and shakshuka make up the healthier end of the menu.
Surrounding by bushland, right on the water? Yep, you'll actually forget you're in Sydney. Bring your dog (they're pooch friendly) and if it's a chilly morning, warm up with the heaters and steaming hot coffee – and maybe a walk on the beach afterwards.
Salvage is breathing new life into Wilkes Ave. Tables spill outside, and eating is a little more gourmet than your average breakfast. If it's a short wait for a table, grab a (standout) coffee, and chill on a bench nearby.
You'll have to get to Fika Swedish Kitchen before 11:30 for breakfast, otherwise you'll be left looking longingly at the chalkboard. It turns out the Swedish have excellent taste in breakfast, with Jarlsberg cheese in the Brekkie Bun and caramelised pear and candied almonds in the porridge. Yum.
The name might confuse you, but these guys do a mean breakfast as well as top quality vino. Their speciality is toasties (our pick is the crispy bacon one) but there's enough of the granola-and-brekkie-roll variety to keep everyone satisfied.
Unless it's actually raining, there's no better way to spend a morning than in the company of a steaming hot espresso and quinoa bircher on The Boathouse's deck. (And your Mum, of course.) Feeling decadent? Go for the croissant French toast instead. Yes, it's a thing.
Just the thought of Bourke Street Bakery can send mouths salivating. Think of the soft and flaky croissants, the flavoursome tarts and the warm sausage rolls... you're practically there right now, aren't you?
The Parramatta outfit is on the outskirts of the eating district and is just minutes from Westfield Parramatta and Jamie Oliver's Jamie's Italian restaurant. Give in your cravings: make it a day of catching up with mum with brunch at Bourke Street Bakery and dinner at Jamie's. You know you want to.
When XS (excess) is in order, XS Espresso Lunch and Belgian Dessert Bar will do the trick. The cafe is renowned for bringing the "freakshake" to the West and changes its flavours often. Before you attempt to take on the phenomenally constructed desserts, tuck into some of their delicious coffee and food offerings which include a signature XS chicken burger and crepes.
Now, to the freakshakes!
