We wanted to take our daughter to the Breakfast with Santa at Grouse but it was sold out and then we found out through the Globe and Mail that The Observatory is open for lunch during the holidays and are offering a 3 course meal for $49 per adult. This price includes the gondola ride up which is $40 and we were planning on going anyway to partake in skating, santa, and sleigh ride (all included except skate rentals). For a $9 lunch (not including wine, tax and tip of course:), it was very good food and service. I just thought I'd share this nugget of a good deal with anyone that was planning on going up anyway. Just make sure you make a reservation so the clerk at the bottom of the lift can send you up no charge.
