Brunch with Santa on Sunday, December 3rd, from 11am to 1pm, to enjoy a delicious hot chocolate bar, write letters to Santa, and even meet the man himself. Nice and naughty list alike, come one, come all to the Hall!

Make sure to come hungry, because we’ve got quite the lineup of brunchy options to choose from… Walk on over to Whisk for your choice of crepe, savory or sweet! Check out one of our personal favorites, Cookies & Cream. Filled with cookie cream and strawberries, topped with chocolate sauce and ice cream, this crepe is sure to satisfy that pesky sweet tooth!
Brunch just isn’t brunch without The Liege Waffle Co., trust us. The Whip Di Parma is clearly a crowd favorite, how could it not be when it looks like this? Piled with whipped feta, arugula, prosciutto, and Mike’s hot honey, it’s the perfect savory choice to start your day with.
