Mother’s Day is just around the corner and it’s time to get organised, shop local and create a special Mother’s Day she won’t forget. Central Geelong businesses are here to help and have a range of ways to help you show your love and appreciation on Sunday May 9th. 

Take her our for breakfast, lunch or dinner

Treat her to a delicious outing to a Central Geelong eatery. Whether it’s for breakfast, lunch or dinner, there will be something for every mum to enjoy.

Empire Grill on McKillop Street are offering a three-course lunch set menu on Mother’s Day. Each booking will include a complimentary glass of French champagne on arrival for every mum. Wah Wah Gee on the Pier are serving up a delicious ‘Feed Me’ feast complete with a glass of sparking wine for mum to make her afternoon extra special. If you think mum will enjoy an Italian lunch, Caruggi in Lt Malop Street are opening for lunch on Mother’s Day and are also offering little gift boxes and hampers.

If your mum prefers eating out for breakfast for that barista made coffee, then why not try The Beach House Geelong, A Spot for Joe, Sailors’ Rest or Sprout & Bean.

Or if a Mother’s Day dinner is more suited then take your pick at the variety of incredible restaurants on offer in Central Geelong. Frankie in Malop Street have ‘Feed Me’ dinner packages available and of course, all mums get a glass of bubbles on arrival. You can also book into ALMA Restaurant and treat mum to the Chef’s Selection menu.

Join Piano Bar in Lt Malop Street for their annual Mother’s Day lunch event with Andy Pobjoy and Shandelle Cooke. Tickets include an afternoon of entertainment – their musicians will be playing mum’s favourites by request all afternoon – and a custom menu with drinks at bar prices.
