Christmas Dinner with Little Kids

Christmas Dinner with Little Kids

Hi! We are staying at the Dream Inn for Christmas. Any suggestions on where to go for Christmas dinner with two kids, age 4 and six? Restaurant in the hotel ok or is there somewhere else nearby that feels more cozy and local? We'd like to stay in Santa Cruz proper unless there is somewhere else in another nearby town really outstanding to go. Thank you!

There are 16 restaurants in Santa Cruz and surrounding towns that are open on Christmas. Looking at that list I'd say staying in the hotel at Aquarius is your best bet with two small children. Here's the list of places open:

Aquarius is good but not warm and cozy. I would go to The Shadowbrook Inn in nearby Capitola. The kids will enjoy the ride in the little trolley to the dining room. It is warm and cozy there and the food is very good. :).
