Ann Arbor Santa Meals

I remember having Breakfast with Santa when I was a child. It was definitely an experience I wanted to share with my daughter. There are several Ann Arbor Santa Meals (or snacks) in Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County. I’ve also partnered with other sites in Southeast Michigan to bring you a list of all the opportunities to Dine with Santa throughout Southeast Michigan.

Our Santa Meal Experiences

I remember doing breakfast with Santa as a child, so I definitely looked for options when my daughter was a baby. We took my daughter to her first Breakfast with Santa when she was 11 months old. I got a great photo of her staring at Santa from her high chair. Unfortunately, I can’t find my CD drive to share it here.

Dining with Santa is a great, relaxed way to visit Santa. My daughter was always more willing to talk to Santa when he visited our table, or she visited his table. But, she was intimidated by the Santa sets. I think it felt a bit like being on stage.

If you are attending Holiday Nights at Greenfield Village, I do recommend their Supper with Santa program.

Santa Meals Beyond Ann Arbor

A nice meal with Santa is an event that I consider worth a bit of a drive. I teamed up with several other sites in Southeast Detroit once again to help you find Santa Meals events across Southeast Michigan.
