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.
