Bob's Café is not technically open until 10 a.m. on Christmas morning, but the restaurant is packed full of people enjoying a pancakes and sausage breakfast.
This tradition started three years ago when manager Ben Weiland wanted to make a charitable donation.
"I eventually bumped into the Knights of Columbus who said they would be glad to do it. They did it last year. They've done it this year and they are, in turn, turning the money over to St. Michael's Youth Mission program," Weiland said.
It is a free-will donation meal, you pay what you want and the food is yours.
"It's a fabulous idea that they donate all of the food and the opportunity for the kids to be able to do this, to have a chance to go on a mission trip somewhere. It's a great plan," customer Shelly Stutson said.
This is the first time Stutson stopped into Bob's on Christmas morning and she says it may not be her last.
"Normally, we're with our family on Christmas morning, so this year we had an opportunity to come and do this, so this is a good, new tradition to start," Stutson said.
Not only does a free-will donation for breakfast go to a great charity, but once you hit the counter, you get to hear some great Christmas stories, as well.
"They come here, the camaraderie of the people at the counter, you never know who you're going to bump into. They all bring a Christmas story or any number of stories and they have a great time while they're here," Weiland said.
It is a moment of Christmas cheer and also Christmas charity, and it's a meal that will continue for years to come.
"It's one of those days you come to work with a smile on your face before you ever get here because you know it's going to start off with a blast and keep going all day long," Weiland said.
What made this even more special is that the kids getting the money through the Knights of Columbus were there at Bob's helping out with the cooking and the cleaning.
