Quick Bites: Mother’s Day 2012

When was the last time you took your Momma out for brunch? Maccas drive through doesn’t count. If it’s been a little while, celebrate your ma this Sunday. I’ve rounded up a few ideas on where to go for Mother’s Day brunch in Brisbane.

Sadly, Momma T and I are still separated by a really large ocean and several pesky masses of land, but I know I’d be chowing down with her this weekend if I could.


The Lark – Sunday Roast
The Lark is a cute little bar in Paddington, so it’s an ideal place to snuggle up with your momma. No shame in that – my mother may be half my size, but I still enjoy a good cuddle. Get a good feed too with a special roast lunch, served from noon: roasted lamb in a sourdough herb crust, stuffed with sun dried tomato and olives, with chat potatoes, artichoke, baby carrots, rosemary sauce, and beetroot chutney….mmmm! Call 3369 1299 for reservations.

Stamford Plaza – High Tea/Lunch
Your mum’s a slapper? You are a little bit, too? Well, pull it together for one day ladies – there’s scones and finger sandwiches on the line here! Check out the swank Stamford Plaza for a delicious high tea. Check out their website for more info.
UPDATE: High Tea has been fully booked! Try their buffet lunch instead – it includes a three hour beverage package (that means wine during the day! Whee!).

16th on Park – Breakfast/Lunch/High Tea/Dinner

If your momma has a busy schedule (mine sure does – she used to get home later than I did on a Saturday night), this Park Rd cafe has plenty of options. High Tea? Brekkie? Just a cheeky little cake’n’coffee combo? No worries! I personally am partial to their cheesecake. Visit http://16onpark.com.au/category/whats-on for more info.

The Normanby – Two Course Meal
When I think ‘Normanby’, I don’t think ‘lovely place to take my mother’. I think ‘misspent youth’, ‘I can’t believe I used to dress like that’, ‘where’s my dignity’. But truth be told, it is quite a lovely location during the day. So, treat your mum to a two course meal and a glass of champers for just $38. Phone 3831 3353 to book.

Happy Mother’s Day, Momma T…thank you for birthing me…thank you for letting me live with you up until age 24…thank you for pretending that you didn’t notice I ate the last Tim Tam…miss you <3
