With Mother’s Day just around the corner on 9 May, it’s about time to start planning on how best to pamper mum.
Last year’s occasion was a muted affair due to the Circuit Breaker — which disallowed dining in restaurants and led most of us to turn to food deliveries — so the upcoming one is our chance to really pull out all the stops and give our queens the unforgettable celebrations they deserve.

1. The Marmalade Pantry (Downtown)
If a languid afternoon of tea and dainty bites is more up mum’s alley, pamper her with the Marmalade Pantry’s weekend afternoon tea ($54++ for two diners), which features a two-tier set laden with goodies such as roast beef sandwiches, chilli crab mantou, cupcakes, and delightfully crumbly buttermilk scones with clotted cream, strawberry preserve and orange marmalade. Exclusive to Mastercard holders, the restaurant has also introduced a Royal Afternoon Tea Set ($80++ for three diners), an amped up version that comes with an additional pasta or noodle dish. For the latter, choose from options such as truffle mushroom risotto, Hokkien noodles, or — our recommendation — perfectly al dente linguine topped with juicy seared scallops and prawns. The set also includes two types of Monogram Tea and three glasses of De Bortoli Emeri Pink Moscato sparkling wine.
Available only at The Marmalade Pantry’s Downtown and Novena outlets from 1 to 2 May and 8 to 9 May for dine-in from 11:30AM to 5PM. There’s also a home delivery option without the sparkling wine, which you can order here.

It also comes with sides of cheddar cheese mashed potato and char-grilled vegetables, and refreshing desserts like ruby grapefruit mousse and almond milk ice cream.
