Mother’s Day is just around the corner and it’s time to get organised, shop local and create a special day Mum won’t forget. Central Geelong businesses are ready to help you show your love and appreciation on Sunday, May 9.

Take her out for a meal

Treat Mum to a delicious outing at 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 is offering
a three-course lunch set menu on Mother’s
Day and 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 she’ll 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 and enjoying a barista-made coffee, try The Beach House Geelong, A Spot for Joe, Sailors’ Rest or Sprout & Bean.

Or if a Mother’s Day dinner is more suited, choose from the variety of restaurants on offer in Central Geelong. Frankie in Malop Street have ‘Feed Me’ dinner packages available with all mums receiving a glass of bubbles on arrival or book into ALMA Restaurant and treat her to the Chef’s Selection menu.
