Breakfast with Santa Events in Metro Detroit and Ann Arbor

Where can families share holiday meals, like breakfast, with Santa Claus this Christmas season? Check out this list of local breakfast with Santa events.

Santa Claus may love cookies and milk, but he also has a soft spot for a hearty breakfast, it seems! And it’s no wonder. With all those visits to make even before Christmas day, the guy needs fuel!

St. Nick is making an appearance at a number of different towns in Macomb, Oakland, Washtenaw and Wayne counties for some extra special holiday breakfasts, brunches, lunches and dinners – and your family is invited to join him.

Sit down to a holiday meal with the man in red at these local events, where kids are guaranteed to have a magical, jolly good time.

Heads up: Many meals with Santa events require families to register in advance, and tickets are selling like hotcakes. Reserve your space now and be sure to check ahead on any COVID-19 safety protocols.
