Mother’s Day High Tea 2021

Are you looking for a Mother’s Day high tea location in 2021? Well you’ve come to the right place.

We’ve found in previous years, We’ve needed to organise and book our Mother’s Day well in advance otherwise we end up getting a bad table or miss out completely. So, to help you out, we have created a list of our top high tea spots for Mother’s Day.

Sir Stamford at Circular Quay

If you’re wanting to stay central to the Sydney CBD, Stir Stamford at Circular Quay is the place to be. They have already put their Mother’s Day 2021 high tea event online, so you can book in and get the best seats sorted now.

11.00 am – 2.00 pm or 12.00 noon – 3.00 pm
$89 per person 
$55 per child (5 – 12 years) 

What will you find on the menu? Traditional scones with jam and cream, sandwiches, sweet and savoury items. You can check out the whole menu on their website, but we think we would look most forward to the ‘Chicken Avocado Lemon & Tarragon on Brioche’ and the ‘Assorted French Macarons’.

Hydro Majestic, Medlow Bath

You can’t beat the views at the Hydro Majestic as you look over the Megalong Valley. This place has so much history and is a beautiful location to spend Mother’s Day enjoying your high tea with mum.

Sunday May 9 2021
Their website currently doesn’t have any information available for Mother’s Day, other than it’s coming soon. When we have gone in previous years, for Mother’s day, they usually only have the Luxurious High Tea that’s $89 per person.

Their Wintergarden offers a premium afternoon high tea with a flute of French Champagne. Hopefully by the time you read this, they will have uploaded some more information on their website for Mother’s Day.

Crowne Plaza, Terrigal Pacific

If the beach is more your style then the Crowne Plaza at Terrigal Beach would be your best bet. You can enjoy a high tea with your mum and take in the beautiful ocean views. Their Mother’s Day high tea is online already as well, and you are able to book in now.

Sunday 9 May 2021
1.00pm – 3.00pm

Your high tea will be served on a traditional tower and come with a range of delicacies and delights. The price also includes beverages including sparkling wine, wine, beer, soft drinks, tea and coffee. You can find their full menu on their website, but we would be most looking forward to the ‘Chicken and Leek Pie’ or the ‘Pecan and Palm Treacle Cheesecake’.

Tocal Homestead, Paterson

Are you thinking a road trip may be more what you are after, Tocal Homestead is about 2 hours from Sydney, near Newcastle. This venue is stunning and won’t disappoint, especially if you love nature.

Sunday 9 May 2021
There isn’t any prices online for Tocal Homestead, but there is a phone number to contact if you are interested.

The high-tea is being organise by then on-site caterers and will be a decadent and substantial high tea to create a memorable occasion. Their service includes an array of savoury morsels, sweet treats and fresh scones, your choice of tea and also bar service, which is available on request.

The Langham, Millers Point

For a classy English experience, you can’t go past The Langham in Millers Point. They have an afternoon tea with Wedgewood experience. It is known as the birthplace of the traditional afternoon tea – from their London flagship location.

Sunday May 9 2021
They haven’t put their Mother’s Day event up yet, but usually their pricing is:
$98 with a glass of Sparkling
$113 with a glass of Champagne
$49 for under 12

This would be one of our favourite high tea experiences. The staff here are lovely and they have a tea we have not been able to find anywhere else, the Irish Whisky. Hopefully they also upload some more information to their website shortly – so keep your eye out for that.

We hope you can enjoy your Mother’s Day with whom you decide to celebrate it with. Have you bought your mum a present yet? We’ve been eyeing off these bath bombs, and there is enough for us to steal some from mum haha!

If you’re allergic to everything, here are the best places to dine in Sydney

Do you have an allergy or intolerance and find it hard to eat out in Sydney? Here are the places we would visit if we were in your situation.

Allergies and intolerances in food seem to be a growing concern especially among our youth. While there isn’t much you can do about fixing the problem you can certainly avoid consuming what makes us sick. Here is where we would eat out throughout the day, if we had some of the most common allergies/intolerances.

Breakfast

Youeni – You’ll be able to find Youeni in Surry Hills near the CBD or Castle Hill in the North West. Youeni has been around for many years and is definitely a place we should all visit, whether we are allergic to everything or not. The meals are super fresh and healthy and they also cater for vegan, keto and high protein diets. Their menu seems to be easy to modify and no dirty looks seem to come your way when you need to change something for your health!

Lunch

Belmonte Italian – You’ll find this place in the Sydney North West suburb of Baulkham Hills. This place reminds us of our grandma’s home cooked meals and it has such a lovely vibe about the place – the staff are great. We’ve watched this place more recently become very vegan friendly, with the option to change menu items easily if needed. Of course, being Italian, they also have all your gluten-free needs solved as well. As mentioned, the staff here are lovely and if you had any special requirements (that they haven’t already sorted out for you on the menu) I’m sure they will happily sort it out.

Dinner

Mark & Vinnys – You’ll find these guys in Surry Hills – they’ve been around for quite a few years now. You’ll probably recognise them from their bright coloured pastas and extensive vegan options on the menu. If spaghetti and spritz is your sort of thing, this is the perfect place. Their menu is super clear to let you know whether items are vegan or not, and of course, you can swap to gluten-free pasta. The cocktails are divine here too!

Dessert

Nutie Donuts – Doughnuts are our sweet spot, so an allergy/intolerance-free version of them is a must. You’ll find Nutie Donuts in the inner west suburb of Balmain. When your sweet tooth starts kicking in, you’ll be able to find gluten-free and dairy-free options ready to go. I’d recommend the famous cinnamon donut but there are so many delicious options to choose from.

And lastly, there is always the option to just stay in and be safe with your own cooking. If you’re struggling to to find some good recipes for your allergy/intolerance, we’d recommend The Allergy-Free Cookbook.

We hope this blog helped you out. It looks like more and more places starting to factor in allergy and intolerances into their menus but we still have a long way to go! Let us know if you go to any of the above places or if you have any other recommendations.

If you’re wanting to understand more about allergies, there’s a great book about it called Allergy Epidemic, where they discuss the practical side of dealing with serious allergies and how you stay safe!
