Mums, stepmums, carers, even awesome besties… Whoever the mother figure is in your life, we reckon they probably deserve some extra love this Mother’s Day. And while we’re a little biased (because hey, we’re all about food), we think a Mother’s Day brunch could be just the thing. From Barangaroo to Camperdown, tastier than flowers and better than a trip to Luna Park (well, maybe), your Ma will appreciate a Mother’s Day Brunch with you so much more than those assorted chocolates or cheap bouquet from the servo.
To make your job of booking the perfect spot even easier, we’ve updated our list of the great Mother’s Day brunches in Sydney for 2021.

This family run eatery prides itself on creating bold flavours using the freshest local ingredients. Coming for breakfast? Don’t go past the Breakfast Mezze, featuring lountza (a cured pork tenderloin), pastourma (cured beef) and haloumi (delicious cheese), along with a host of other tasty treats. If lunch is more your style, prepare to enjoy a range of mezze, grilled meats, and light-as-air flatbreads. Yum.
