Breakfast or Afternoon Tea with Santa Sure to Delight Young or Young at Heart

Colonial Williamsburg presents a holiday tradition families have enjoyed for decades – breakfast with Santa – Dec. 4 and 18 from 9 a.m. to noon in the Colony Room in the Williamsburg Lodge. The buffet menu includes fresh juice, scrambled eggs, bacon, homemade donuts, pancakes, hash brown potatoes and fresh fruit cocktail. Families are certain to get into the spirit of the season in the Lodge decorated with folk art, greenery and a gingerbread village created by the Lodge pastry chefs.

Children can experience the very proper English ritual of afternoon tea Dec. 12 and 19 at the Williamsburg Lodge from 3 p.m. Treats from mini éclairs to chocolate chip scones and egg salad sandwiches, chocolate milk or Harney & Sons tea will be served along with a visit from Santa Claus.

Cost for breakfast with Santa is $23.95, including tax and gratuity, and the tea is $25, including tax and gratuity. Reservations are recommended by calling 1-800-404-3389. The Williamsburg Lodge is located at 310 S. England St. in Williamsburg.
