Celebrate Mother's Day with a spread of sweet and savory favorites
This year, give mom the gift of a delicious brunch and some family time at the zoo. Visit notable moms like painted dog Ella (and her adorable pups)! The zoo's annual Mother's Day brunch takes place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, May 12, in the Cascade Crest ballroom, downstairs from the Cascade Grill.
This year's feast includes eggs benedict, made-to-order shrimp and grits, a carving station and a smoked seafood board — along with fresh fruit, salads, a kids' menu and pastries. Full menu available here.
The brunch buffet is $55 for ages 12 and up and $27.50 for children ages 3-11 (with a 10 percent discount for zoo members and moms) and includes Zoo Admission. All revenue from the Mother's Day brunch supports the zoo's work in conservation, education and animal welfare.
Seatings are available between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. Reservations are available here. Questions? Call 503-226-1561.
