Breakfast with Santa at Neiman Marcus ~ Dallas, TX

There are so many fun & exciting venues to meet Santa in now - not at all like when I was growing up, where the only place you could "meet" him was at the local mall.  Now-a-days, Santa appears at all kinds of Holiday Events (check out our list of where to find Santa in Austin) from train rides to breakfast.

For years, we took our two oldest to meet Santa was Breakfast at Neiman Marcus. It was a tradition that all of us looked forward to each Christmas - even Daddy!  Located at the downtown Neiman Marcus, Breakfast with Santa is held in the Zodiac Room on specific dates (see below). We would get dressed up in our Christmas finest and set out for a fun event.
 The meal itself is preset and cute elves roam the restaurant, keeping the kids entertained while they wait for the Big Man to arrive.

As Santa arrives, everyone in the room (moms & dads included) hushes - it's as if he is the biggest celebrity in the world.....well, I guess he is for some of these kids! What I love most about this meal is that Santa spends quality time with your children, asking them questions and engaging them in conversation. My kids always leave feeling they had a great visit with him.
Once Santa has made his way around the room and the meal is over, Neiman Marcus presents another treat. Dallas premier children's entertainer, Eddie Coker does a set for the kids. Another "celebrity" to my kiddos - they loved Eddie's high energy & fun songs.

Neiman Marcus makes Breakfast with Santa a "must-do" each Holiday season. All three area Neiman Marcus stores have events (see below for details). If you can't make it this year, definitely put it on your calendar for next season. The memories you make for your family are priceless.
