What were some of your favorite Mother's Day traditions when you were a kid? For me, it was waking up early to make mom the breakfast in bed she sacrificed all year to earn. If you're ready to start a new tradition to show mom how much you care for her, consider reserving a coveted spot at the Mother's Day buffet at the Orchids at Palm Court, located on West Fifth Street in Cincinnati.

 

"Families have been coming to the buffet for many years," says Todd Kelly, executive chef and director of food and beverage at Orchids at Palm Court. The buffet, said to date back to 1931, is a true Queen City tradition, and Orchids pulls out all the stops to make sure mom is duly pampered on this day.

From 10:30am to 4pm moms can enjoy the expansive menu of Orchids at Palm Court, including prime rib, turkey and ham, as well as made to order omelets and much more. In addition to this, a 20 foot dessert display is created just for the purpose of celebrating mom. "It's a buffet unlike any other in the city," says Kelly. There will be a pianist in the Palm Court and a guitarist in the Continental Ballroom for guests to enjoy as they eat. "Treating Mom and the entire family to the buffet shows her how much you care and want to treat her to an unforgettable ambiance and a menu to match," says Kelly.

 

Through the years, the Mother's Day buffet has managed to hold on tightly to its sense of tradition. "Many things stay the same because it such a huge tradition for families to come every year," explains Kelly. The one thing which does evolve every year is the guest menu. This year's buffet will feature unique dishes including Au Poivre Bistro Tenders with Gorgonzola, Roasted Mushrooms and Cabernet Demi Glace, and Italian Sausage Tortellini with Marinated Peppers, Marinara, Spinach and Parmesan, as well as a peach cardamom crisp and fresh lemon meringue tarts just to name a few items.

 

And if the sounds of these dishes have your taste buds tingling, you'll be glad to know that Orchids at Palm Court sell a unique cookbook, written by Kelly and featuring more than sixty-five of the Orichid's signature recipes. The cookbook is sold for $29.95 and can be purchased at the hotel's lobby or restaurants, or consider purchasing online to give to Mom as a special gift on her day.

 

This Mother's Day buffet is a tradition for many across the Tri-State, so make sure you get your reservations in early. Orchids at Palm Court begin taking reservations shortly after Valentine's Day due to the high volume of guests they see on this day every year. "We expect to serve 1000 people at the buffet," says Kelly. Prices range from $18.94 for children five to twelve years to $45.95 for an average adult ticket. Guests 65 and older are offered the price of $38.95. Call (513) 421-9100 to make a reservation.
