Where to Have Breakfast & More with Santa in San Diego (2021)



One of most unique and magical Christmas moments you can have with your kids is to enjoy a special breakfast with Santa Claus. You'll have your own place setting and often times your very own table. Santa will walk around visiting everyone at their tables, giving children the chance to talk to Santa and tell him about their Christmas wishes. This makes for a fun photo opportunity with together with Santa. Some of these events will include a professional photo and others are DIY, so make sure to BYO camera. A few of these are pretty popular and will sell out quickly, so read below and book your breakfast with Santa. I also included a few other fun eats with Santa like Tacos with Santa and Cookies with Santa, read below.
