Mother’s Day Happenings in Cedar Rapids & More

Mother’s Day is quickly approaching and we are so excited to share some of the upcoming events happening in the area. Don’t be afraid to print this list off and casually leave it on the counter or near your husband’s wallet to drop a little hint!

Check out these local restaurants:

Mandarin Spice Asian Grill (10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.): Stop by Mandarian Spice for a Mother’s Day Buffet featuring their famous teriyaki chicken, Asian-style salmon, wontons, and assorted sushi.

Pedaler’s Fork (8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.): Featuring your favorite Brunch Buffet favorites from Prime Rib to Avocado Toast, Mashed Potatoes, and more, this brunch looks binge-worthy! Don’t forget to check out one of their 108 beers on tap!

Chophouse Downtown (11:00 a.m.  – 4:00 p.m.) – Along with bottomless mimosas and Bloody Mary’s, their featured menu mentions an apple cinnamon French toast that sounds drool-worthy. Reservations are not required but are encouraged.  

Chrome Horse Saloon (8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.) – Not only will they be serving a brunch buffet, but they will be having live music and face painting; fun for the whole family! 

Granite City Food and Brewery (9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.) – How could you go wrong by celebrating at a brewery that will be serving classic brunch options.  They have an option to reserve a table on their website and takeout is available. 

Kingston’s Steakhouse (9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.) – Located on the NE side of Cedar Rapids, formerly known as Butcher Block, Kingston’s Steakhouse provides a great menu and cocktail selection. Sunday they are offering delicious options like unlimited mimosa and Bloody Mary bars. Reservations are suggested. 

The Hotel at Kirkwood (10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.) – They are offering an extensive menu with meat carving stations and even a shrimp cocktail display! Kids 5 and under are free, reservations are required. 

Paradise Indian Grill (11:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m) – An Indian buffet with unique bites like Tandoor and Naan.  With almost a 5-star rating on their Facebook page, I’m betting this is going to be beyond tasty.

Stillwater Coffee Co. (2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.) – This is one of the cutest coffee shops around, and they are making it even cuter by hosting a Mother’s Day Tea Party for all ages. There will be live music, beverages, and finger sandwiches. Tickets are required.        

White Star Ale House (12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.) – This one is more of a “lunch” than a “brunch,” but the four-course meal they are offering sounds phenomenal!

Or maybe staying in is more your thing, no problem; check out this list of ideas for your Mother’s Day celebration: 

  1. Cook a meal together, or bake a family recipe.
