Perfect for a weekend brunch, lunch or dinner - awesome menu and eclectic atmosphere. Highly recommend the Prawns Monica or Jumbalaya but their Po Boys are awesome as well! AMAZING DESSERTS!

The curly fries at Sweet Mother's are to die for. Literally even. The staff are kooky, and always happy to help, and the pie cabinet is jam packed with delicious southern inspired treats, like pecan pie.

No Wellington pie list would be complete without a mention of the ah-mazing dessert pies at Sweet Mother's. Everything from key lime to pecan...you'll be sure to find something to your liking.

Butter milk chicken - yes please.

Down the Mt. Victoria end of Courtney Place is Sweet Mothers Kitchen, a New Orleans fashioned restaurant with southern style cooking. Brunch here goes all day on a Sunday, so its an excellent choice if you are a late riser. I’m a big fan of the eggsadilla which is essentially a large breakfast burrito, also on the highly rated menu are the waffles with fried chicken, top shelf hangover food for those who are in need, also good anytime for those who are fans of well, fried chicken!

Sweet Mother's Kitchen is on this list out of pure respect. This is one of the establishments that makes Wellington so unique, and just another reason why the Capital is such a desirable dining destination. Head there for home-style cooking inspired by New Orleans, Cajun and Creole cuisine with a tasty hint of Mexican snack food on the side. It feels so good being in the hands of a team with so much experience and love for what they do, you’ll feel it once you get there. Important: Breakfast is served ‘til 5pm on the weekends (many a hungover patron has reaped the rewards) but if you’re not feeling the effects of the night before - or you want to keep the ball rolling/get back on the horse - then ask for their brilliant beverage list (particularly the beers!)

Still one of the best brunch spots in Wellington! Who doesn't love South American food... especially a burrito at breakfast! And their peanut butter milkshakes... yum! #cafetab
