We’ve heard that there are plenty of good Bloody Marys to be had in the Pacific Northwest, but until recently, we hadn’t had the opportunity to sample them.

That changed when we visited Portland, Oregon for the first time last week.

Mother's Bloody Mary Portland


We visited Mother’s Bistro & Bar for Sunday brunch, where we enjoyed one of their “Famous Bloody Marys.”

Mother’s is a popular brunch spot and we found ourselves waiting for a bit to be seated. Luckily, we were flexible and only had to wait about 20 minutes to get a spot at the bar.

MIX:  Housemade “secret bloody concoction” with house-infused pepper & jalapeno vodka

CHASER: None offered

FIXIN’S: Lemon, celery, olive and pepper


While relatively plain, this Bloody Mary had a nice flavor to it and we particularly enjoyed the jalapeno kick, as well as the touch of the salted rim.

Mother’s was quite crowded for brunch and it was easy to see why. Their menu was robust with lots of tasty options.

If you’re looking for a good breakfast/brunch spot in the downtown area, you should give Mother’s a shot.
