NEW BERN, N.C. — New Bern, North Carolina’s Colonial Capital, literally transforms into a wonderland the entire Christmas season. Streetlights and storefronts are decorated, and the community comes together to create a magical time for kids young and old.

Amidst the busy bustle, Adam and Candice Simmons, owners of a downtown New Bern landmark, Morgan’s Tavern & Grill, take time out of their busy holiday schedule for a special day on December 3, from 7 – 10:00 am, to serve up over 500 delicious pancake breakfasts for Pancakes for PIE (Partners In Education).

Morgan’s will be festively decorated for the holiday season and is the perfect setting to start your day with pancakes, bacon, sausage, fruit, orange juice, coffee, and water. All this for just $7 per adult and $5 for children 12 and under. Reservations are not required as this is a pay-at-the-door event. Debit, credit cards, checks and cash are accepted. To expedite seating, please have checks or cash ready.

This event has become known all over the region as a “must do” before starting a day of shopping and attending Christmas-themed events held during New Bern’s Beary Merry Christmas season.
