Mother’s Day weekend is upon us, and we find ourselves in yet another restrictive tier. Luckily, the temperatures are increasing and the weather is projected to be fairly sunny and dry. Check out these ten places and ideas for celebrating the Moms and mother figures on Mother’s Day in Bend and Central Oregon!

Blissful Spoon, Bend
Tapas, French pastries, wine and beer, and a downtown outdoor patio await at Bend’s new Blissful Spoon. You might recognize them from Central Oregon Farmer’s Markets, selling gluten-free treats. Now, you can find them six days a week on the corner of Newport Ave and Brooks St. After some morning indulgences, pop over the lawn at Bend Brewing Company for some waterfront lounging.

65 NW Newport Ave, Bend, OR 97703
Some of the smallest eateries (food carts) produce some of the biggest flavors. Scoutpost makes an incredible breakfast sandwich served on a potato bun. It’s filled with bacon, fried egg, harissa, arugula, and cheddar cheese. Or, indulge in a plate of chicken and waffles. An order of their sugar-tossed donut holes served with sweet dipping sauces (rotating flavors like vanilla bean, berry, and butterscotch) is always a must!
