But there are plenty of fantastic independent Sheffield places to give her a real foodie treat - either as a Mother’s Day experience or as a gift.

Classic afternoon teas have taken off in the city, and there are several spots doing this well.

In the city centre Caffe Leopold does a fine afternoon tea with fresh sandwiches, hearty cakes, plus a glass of prosecco and hot drinks for £18.50, served on pretty patterned tableware.

The home-made prosecco chocolates make for a lovely finishing touch.

Vintage fans can enjoy a classy and dainty spread at the former antiques shop that is Jameson’s, on Abbeydale Road, for , and to burn it off afterwards there is always a stroll around the nearby retro and antiques shops.

A pianist plays most days during lunch too.

For mums who really like their bubbles, Craft and Dough is offering a bottomless brunch with prosecco for £25 per person between 10am and 3pm this Sunday. The eggs benedict is a fine choice.

The Broadfield is giving away a Sheffield Dry Gin miniature for the special lady of the party for the first 30 reservations, while Tapas Revolution at Meadowhall is offering a complimentary glass of cava for mums dining on certain set menus.

Breakfast is also a good option at Brocco on the Park- a Scandi-style hotel and restaurant located right on the edge of Endcliffe Park.

Their waffles will suit the whole family and for mums on a health kick, they even do five healthy options, ranging from granola to egg white omelettes, and ‘super smoothies.’

Further down Ecclesall Road and Cocoa Wonderland’s pleasing pink exterior will entice you in - and once inside there is a massive range of sweet-toothed treats in indulge in. A cocoa in the quirky back room - literally, like drinking melted chocolate - will please young and old.

For those who want something stronger, take mum for a cocktail with a view on Sheffield’s newest rooftop bar, Inc Sheffield, at the Krynkl development in Sheffield.

Film lovers who prefer a good drama to a panorama can also sip wine in the little-known rooftop bar of the Curzon cinema in the city centre, before catching a movie of their choice.

If you want to push the boat out, The Peacock at Rowsley in the Peak District is offering a special three course Mother’s Day menu at £40 per person.

Finally, for a well deserved lazy day without leaving the house, make like a professional and order from Italia Uno at Banner Cross.

Their sea-bass is worthy of many a restaurant, as is the calzone, and they also have an extensive vegan menu. Here’s to all the Sheffield mums.
