It was an early breakfast for Santa Saturday at the Pines Restaurant on Bronxdale Avenue with City Councilman Mark Gjonaj and Assemblyman Michael Benedetto. Over 100 children and their parents received a hearty healthy breakfast, and then the children got to tell Santa what they wanted for Christmas.
