The Lunch Café

Take a break from shopping and refuel with something delicious from our Lunch Café. Soups, salads, sandwiches, and kids meals are all on the menu, along with assorted non-alcoholic drinks, wine and champagne by the glass, and beer and ale.

The Gourmet Dinner

On Friday night, adults are invited to the St. James Center for a fabulous gourmet dinner, catered by our very own SJA Culinary Crew, including everything from their famous Cream of Crab Soup, to lamb chops, to filet, to sea bass.

Order dinner tickets!

Please Volunteer

As with all Patrons’ events, the key to the success of the Christmas Shoppe is our volunteers. This is a massive effort, and we can’t do it without you. We need help in all areas, including decorating, food prep, servers, porters, and many more. Please consider donating a little time or a lot of time.
