Celebrating Mother’s Day in Fort Collins (Brunches, Specials + Activities)

Mother’s Day is coming up! While you certainly have the opportunity to spoil your wife, mom or motherly figure with breakfast in bed, cards, flowers, and various gifts, we have a few ways you can go the extra mile this year. That’s why we suggest taking advantage of the many Mother’s Day activities happening in the community in addition to said at-home spoiling.

There are so many ways to ensure that you make the mom in your life feel extra special — from brunch specials, to trolley rides, to concerts and more!

Best Places to Brunch in Fort Collins for Mother’s Day

Take advantage of these specials, deals and all around wonderful brunches offered this Mother’s Day in Fort Collins — because Mother’s Day is practically synonymous with brunch.


Jax Fish House

Head to Jax Fish House for an upscale and fancy dinner to celebrate mom as a family. Every mom can enjoy half off all crab, world-class Mimosas, and Cajun-inspired benedicts, among other specials! Jax will be offering their special Mother’s Day deals from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 8.

Head to Enzio’s on Mother’s Day for a special Mother’s Day Buffet featuring a meat carving station, eggs, grilled salmon, pastas, salad, soup, desserts, and more! Get all of this for $29.95 per person, $10.95 for kids under 12, and $0 for kids under 5.


The Stanley Hotel

Since we have examined the spooky side of the Stanley Hotel before, let’s take a walk on the lighter side. The Stanley Hotel is offering their special Mother’s Day menu and buffet for $58 again this year. But this isn’t your average buffet, since everything the hotel provides is fit for royalty.

This is also a great excuse to take a trip to Estes Park on Mother’s Day, because of the many activities you can do as a family in this charming mountain town. So make a day out of it by heading to the Stanley Hotel for brunch then wandering the streets of Estes Park, admiring wildlife at Rocky Mountain National Park, or going on a hike as a family in the surrounding mountainous region!

Austin’s American Grill

Austin’s American Grill is offering a special Mother’s Day Buffet beginning at 9 a.m. on Sunday, May 8. For $29.95 per person and $10.95 for kids under 12, you can get traditional brunch favorites, including Eggs Benedict, smoked salmon, carved sirloin, gourmet pastries, desserts and more!


Snooze: an AM Eatery

While they don’t necessarily offer a special menu on Mother’s Day, we thought we would direct your attention to Snooze, an AM Eatery. This is one of the best places to grab breakfast or brunch in the city — and perhaps in the entire state of Colorado. This Denver-based eatery believes that “life is worth living and each person and each day is worth celebrating.” So what better place to celebrate the mom in your life?

Take a look at their overwhelming and delicious menu to get prepared for what’s in store during your Mother’s Day brunch at Snooze!

The Moot House

The Moot House is serving a Mother’s Day Brunch Buffet from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 8. Take your pick from their wonderful options, including a carving station with house-cured ham, roasted round of beef, salmon balsamico, Eggs Benedict, bread pudding, French toast, fresh fruit, shrimp cocktails, and more! Get all of this for $29.95 per person, just $10.95 for kids 12 and under, and free for those 5 and under.


Cafe Vino

Cafe Vino may be a wine bar at night, but it is a brunch oasis every Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. — and Mother’s Day is no exception! Peruse their brunch menu to know what you can expect — from their specialty brunch cocktails to start the morning right, to their delectable desserts that mom is sure to love. And if you buy an entree, you can purchase bottomless Mimosas as well!

Mom Can Hop on Board the Trolley for Free!

From 12–5 p.m. this Mother’s Day, moms can ride the Fort Collins trolley for free, with at least one paying fare — because why would you want mom to ride alone? Grab the family, pay a few bucks, and get on board the trolley at its starting location at the City Park tennis courts.

Regular fares cost $2 for adults, and $1 for seniors and children, and children under 3 are free. This is a fun way to see your city from a new perspective for a low price!

Stock Mom’s Spring Plant Inventory at the Gardens on Spring Creek

The Gardens on Spring Creek are celebrating moms and all things floral with their annual Spring Plant Sale happening on Mother’s Day weekend! Stop by their sale on Saturday, May 7 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. or Sunday, May 8 from 12 to 5 p.m., or get a head start on your spring plant shopping on Friday if you’re a member at The Gardens.

The Gardens’ own horticulturists and students from Colorado State University and Front Range Community College have been preparing for this plant sale since January to get thousands of annuals, herbs, perennials, and vegetables ready for you to choose from this Mother’s Day weekend! Proceeds from the sale will help support various horticulture programs at CSU, FRCC, and the Gardens.

You can expect to see drought-tolerant perennials, rock garden perennials and succulents, many varieties of herbs and ornamental grasses, drought-tolerant annuals, succulents for drought-tolerant containers, and much more!

Tell mom you’re going to plant paradise for the afternoon on Mother’s Day, and she’ll be thrilled.
