Mother’s Day Weekend @Rivers
We celebrate Mother’s Day all weekend at Rivers! Come and enjoy some family time where you can wander our beautiful grounds and feed the ducks before or after you dine with us! On the Saturday we will be serving breakfast, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea in Rivers Cafe as per our normal menu and on Sunday we will be serving a special breakfast, lunch and high tea menu in both Rivers Café and The Gallery. The Gallery is our Functions and Events Venue - located adjacent to the café by the lake and is ideal for larger group bookings.
Our menus will be published by mid march.
Breakfast and Lunch Menus are very similiar to our Autumn Menu which has just been released.
Our High Tea menu is the same menu that we offer for the last Sunday of each month.
As Mother’s Day (Sunday) itself is one of our busiest days of the year, we have sitting times in order to be as organised as we can to ensure a smooth operation for you and your family. Please note if you are running late then this will reduce the time you have on your table.
Booking a Table
Please note that bookings for the Saturday and Sunday differ.
You can call us directly at the cafe on 9436 3210 – please note that some sitting times apply and non-refundable deposits are only required for tables of 8 guests or more.

In order to book at table there are a number of things to choose;
Location of your table – Café, Café Deck or The Gallery
(If booking on the Café deck, please note that this area is a semi outdoor area, so whilst it is protected from the weather, it is not a heated space. Therefore if you book this space and the day is cold, you will not be able to move to the Café or Gallery….just rug up!

Special Dietary Needs
For special dietary needs our Mother’s Day Menu cater for vegetarians, gluten free and vegan diets. Please make sure that you indicate any of these needs when making your booking. Our dishes are marked accordingly so that you can see what is on offer before you book and they are clear to see on the day.
If you would like to book as a group for 9 guests or more, you will need to contact the cafe directly with your enquiry. Please contact our manager Jemma Wenborn on 9436 3210 Monday-Friday. There are also some group options for tables with bar seating and stools should this be of interest.
As Rivers is family friendly, children and babies are most welcome. When making your booking it is important that you include the children in your total numbers as booked on your ticket to ensure that we have a seat for them. If your child is too young to sit in a seat, then you may use a high chair or bring one with you. High chairs are there for use on a first come basis. As space is limited, we would appreciate if you can leave prams at the entrance, however if this is needed for your sleeping baby, then you are welcome to bring it in.
We look forward to welcoming you and your family at Rivers.
