Stickemen Beer: This lakeside brewery in Lake Oswego is taking reservations (required) for a prix fixe Easter brunch that's $35pp. You'll be able to pick from several choices for your first course, second course and dessert.

Easter Bunny Chocolates & Other Sweets
In Milwaukie, Enchante Chocolatier is packed to the ceiling with beautiful and whimsical Easter offerings, including chocolates, gummies, home décor and anything you might want to pack an Easter basket with. Just a hop (pun intended), skip and a jump from Enchante, look for the cutest bunny butt cookies at Spring Creek Coffee House. And the new Creators and Curators Market in Milwaukie Floral has all of your Easter tablescape needs, such as beautiful yarn carrots.
Too Sweet Cakes in Lake Oswego has Instagram worthy cookies available as singles or doubles for pre-orders through Sun, 3/28 (available for pickup Fri, 4/2 through Sun, 4/4). If you don't have time to pre-order, you can still find robin egg cupcakes, and other seasonal treats. Plus, you can also order seasonal spring sugar cookies in packs of six, which is the real number of sugar cookies we'd eat in one sitting after opening an Easter basket anyway.
Through Easter, FAT Cupcake, with locations in Oregon City and Happy Valley, is baking up their "Hoppy Easter" cupcake with pink champagne cake, raspberry mouse filling, vanilla buttercream and candied eggs on top.
Polka dot bunnies, solid chocolate roosters, and peanut butter Easter eggs are just a few of the yummy seasonal goodies you'll find at Puddin River Chocolates in Canby. Order online today and pick up in store using code PICKUP at check out, or browse their shop in person. Need some Easter décor? Swing by Swan Island Dahlia Farm's shop for an explosion of spring fun, from Easter egg trees to fuzzy bunny chicks. Open 9am-4:30pm Mon-Fri.
