Locally-owned Beaches Restaurant and Bar—with two locations, one in Vancouver on the Columbia riverfront and another location at PDX—is hosting an Easter Brunch at both locations starting at 5 a.m. on Sunday, April 20. The restaurant will offer all its usual breakfast items, plus some special Easter Brunch dishes, such as shrimp Benedict with bacon, spinach and tomato topped with Béarnaise sauce, and blackberry-hazlenut pancakes with orange-maple syrup and rough-cut bacon. (Um, you had us at "bacon.")
While you are licking the Béarnaise sauce off your fork, your kids can visit with the Easter Bunny, who has graciously agreed to spare some time from his incredibly busy Easter morning trip around the world. (Bring your cell phones and cameras, because his appearance will be overflowing with super-cute Easter Bunny photo ops.) Each child who dines at Beaches on Easter morning will also get an extra Easter treat (besides yummy food and seeing the Easter Bunny). Reservations are recommended; call 503-335-8385.
Plan to return on Tuesday, April 22, when Beaches is hosting an all-day fundraiser for the Hough Foundation. Just say “Cashback for Hough” to your server, and Beaches will donate 50% of the check to the Hough Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides support for programs and projects that enhance Vancouver's historic Hough Neighborhood and Hough Elementary School.
