White Rock’s restaurants want to make sure that your holiday feast hits the mark without any of the stress of slaving in the kitchen! With delicious menus including all of the fixings, and options for dine-in or take-out, this year’s dinner might just be the most relaxing yet!

Hillcrest Bakery & Deli

Hillcrest Bakery & Deli have been taking care of Christmas Dinner for White Rock locals for the past 10+ years. Their homestyle turkey dinners are made lovingly from scratch and include all of the fixings – roast turkey, mashed potato, stuffing, veggies, gravy, cranberry sauce, and your choice of a butter tart or a mincemeat tart! Portions are generous, and there will definitely be leftovers. Dinner is $27.99 per person and can be picked up or delivered from December 22 to 24. Be sure to order early as they always sell out!
