Mother’s Day is around the corner (May 10). Are you ready? With this near-total disruption to our regular routines, it might not be possible to jump in the car to find just the right Mother’s Day card or spend a leisurely morning over brunch at her favorite spot. Many restaurants and specialty food markets have pivoted to offer delivery of meals and other goods. Even restaurants that were closed initially have found ways to streamline curb-side pickup or join the food delivery trend.
We’ve rounded up a few locations across the state that are setting the benchmark with creative Mother’s Day takeout solutions of DIY at-home “kits” including brunch, lunch, cocktails and biscuit makings. You can honor mom Oregon-style during this holiday in quarantine. Most have pre-order deadlines so get yours in!
Olympia Provisions Mother’s Day Brunch
In the Portland area, Olympia Provisions’ Eggs Benedict Mother’s Day Kit ($60) is the perfect opportunity for the mother in your life to enjoy their famous Sweetheart Ham, housemade english muffins, potato wedges, and everything else needed to make the meal for four, including eggs, butter, and seasonings along with a video link demonstrating how to make hollandaise. You can also order kits for muffins ($26), mimosas ($26), or the whole shebang of all kits for $105.
