Magazine & Coffee

Every mum deserves a moment to herself, and what better way to help her unwind than with a perfect coffee break? 

Whether she loves a bold espresso or a smooth latte, you’ll find just the right blend to suit her taste at Jasper Coffee or Market Lane Coffee,

With her favourite magazine from Prahran Marker Lotto in one hand and a freshly brewed cup of coffee in the other, she’ll have everything she needs for a blissful moment of relaxation. Give her the gift of a well-deserved ‘me time’ this Mother’s Day. 

Sweet Treats

If your mum has a sweet tooth, treat her to the most delicious of cakes at the Market. Sweet Greek has a mouth-watering selection of cakes to choose from, including many which are gluten free. You can also pre-order a special celebration cake from the team if you’re looking for something unique. Top tip: choose one of the large cakes so you get to enjoy a slice too.

Visit La Colmena, Australia’s first Spanish Pastelería, and add a touch of Spanish sweetness to your Mother’s Day celebration. Indulge in a selection of artisan pastries crafted with love and care. Their recipes, handed down through generations, will transport you to the streets of Spain with every bite.

Whether it’s an Ensaïmada, a spiral shaped sweet pastry from the Balearic Islands or a Flor Manchega, a classic from La Mancha, the legendary land of ‘Don Quixote’ which is a delightful, sweet pastry with a crunchy texture made with a family iron baroque piece that has been passed down a few generations, they’ve got the perfect treats to make this Mother’s Day extra special.
