Creating Holiday Memories at Whole Foods Newport Beach


The holidays are a time for creating memories with the special people in your life. One of my favorite memories as a young child was going to breakfast with Santa with my Grandfather. When I learned that Whole Foods Newport Beach was hosting a breakfast with Santa, I could not wait to start creating the same memories I shared with my Grandfather with my children.



When we arrived, the very friendly Whole Foods staff welcomed us, and then guided us to our table. We then enjoyed some healthy pastry items that were available to us before breakfast. While savoring the flavors of our pastries and juice, each person got a personal visit from the store General Manager George Khoury.



Mr. Khoury arrived at our table and welcomed us to his store and thanked us for coming to the first annual breakfast with Santa. He then advised that breakfast and all of the activities were his treat for all of us who attended, as his gift to us from Whole Foods Newport Beach. I later found out that it is the mission of Whole Foods Newport Beach for the 2014 year to provide community outreach monthly going forward. Mr. Khoury felt that there was no better time to begin this outreach than at Christmas at time.


The kid squealed with delight when we had a tableside visit from Santa, Mrs. Claus, and Santa’s Elf. Then we enjoyed the flavors of the season with a delicious breakfast complete with Sausage, pancakes, scrambled eggs, and bacon. The meal we enjoyed is the same high quality foods that are available in store for purchase and in their restaurant.


After breakfast, a bucket of craft supplies arrived for my children to make a craft. My children enjoyed every moment while creating their holiday craft with me at the breakfast.


Then the big moment came when the kids got a chance to take a photo with Santa, and tell him what they wanted for Christmas. They both enjoyed their time talking with Santa and creating a photo memory.

Whole Foods Newport Beach advised us that the 2014 event will be available on multiple weekends for families to enjoy. This event was a wonderful way to create special holiday memories with my children. I know my kids, and I will be first in line to get tickets to next year’s Breakfast with Santa to create more holiday memories together

Whole Foods Newport Beach is located at Fashion Island in Newport Beach.
