I first visited Hot Mother at least five years ago with Mrs Glamorous NW Coast. On a recent business trip to Burnie, This Girl was pleased to see that Hot Mother was still trading after so many years.
Hot Mother is one of those unique joints that is chock-a-block full of quirky things to gaze at while you wait your order.
The seats are from old buses, the tables very cool 50s style café tables and the seats’ headrests are covered with groovy tea towels.
Hot Mother seems very well loved by locals; while I was eating there was a steady stream grabbing their morning coffee and a few eating in. All pleasantly welcomed by the staff and other customers.
Hot Mother has a sister site called Another Mother. I didn’t get to visit but I was pleasantly surprised that the catering for our event was provided by them.
Another Mother is not your regular caterer of point sandwiches. There was yummy date muffins, delicious fresh salad rolls and Chinese take away containers full of tandoori chicken quinoa salad.
I’ve been told by locals that Hot Mother and Another Mother have been set up by two local mums that have managed a nice fit between their working lives and their family lives. Hot Mother is open 7am to 2:30pm, while Another Mother is open 9am to 3pm.
