Kids of all ages, from 1 to 100, are welcome to join the Hilton Oak Brook Hills for the annual Brunch with Santa events. Everyone’s favorite man in a suit will meet with children, listen to wish lists and take photos with families to capture the memory. On top of all the festive activities, guests will also be treated to an extravagant brunch buffet that rivals any other Brunch with Santa event.
While they’re not meeting with Santa, kids are encouraged to decorate cookies to pair with steaming cups of hot cocoa they can create themselves. Arts and crafts tables will provide all the supplies necessary for decorating festive cups and delicious cookies to enjoy alongside the cocoa. A hot cocoa bar will feature all of the best toppings from chocolate chips and whipped cream to caramel and marshmallows.
The brunch buffet is even better than last year featuring both breakfast and lunch items. The menu includes: a ham carving station with pineapple and cranberry chutney; made-to-order omelet station; peppermint pancakes; Christmas tree waffles with a variety of toppings; ricotta cheese filled blintzes with an eggnog dipping sauce; chicken breast stuffed with ricotta and spinach and a honey sage butter sauce; braised short ribs with parsnips and pearl onions; holiday-themed desserts; and much more.
