Great breakfast any way you want it

If you want to see a slice of Akron culture, make sure you visit this restaurant. Breakfast was fabulous with all the unhealthy options you can imagine. They have a "new healthy option" of eggs scrambled with spinach, fruit on the side. Blueberry pancakes didn't need any syrup, so good! Diners... read more

We have eaten here a number of times, and each time we left we have felt the food was just OK. The breakfast fare is average overall, but we found the pancakes way too heavy and not having much flavor. The lunch menu has your typical sandwich and salad fare, but again, we couldn't recall any outstanding experience. The positive... More

Just west of downtown Akron. Ate breakfast with my son here. Several locals come often and law enforcement officers and political society frequent here at all hours. Food is great-served quickly.

A friend recommended this hometown eatery. Boy, are we glad that he did. My wife ordered Steak, eggs, home fries & toast. Under $10, I ordered a Steak Salad, that came with fries, garlic bread and chicken noodle soup. I figured that I should order it large, under $12. I'm eating the second half now. Way more than I could... More

This is just another diner. Nothing special nothing too bad to say. I came here to get Sunday brunch. Our waitress was very nice and the service was fast but food was just mediocre.

Popular place for lunch & breakfast meetings. Food is typical American breakfast and lunch. Coffee is good, not fancy. Actually, “not fancy” is a good description of the place. Despite the name, I’ve had many more business meetings there than family outings and that seems to be the norm. VERY near downtown.

My husband and I come here for breakfast almost every Sunday. We come with friends or family. The service is friendly. If there is a crowd (and there usually is), we have time to catch up with family. The crab and swiss omelet is a favorite as is the breakfast sandwich, chicken salad platter and the seasonal French Toast. We... More

We were in town for a wedding. Bride's family lives in Akron. We all met for brunch at the restaurant. Had a nice semi private area at the back of one of their private rooms. Food was great - French Toast, a LOT of pieces, and prob a cup of sliced FRESH strawberries. My wife had the ham and cheese... More

This is a local restaurant with a large selection of items to select from. It's not gourmet but if you want a very good breakfast go to Akron Family Restaurant. Lunch is great as well and I would suggest the stuffed potato soup; very tasty. Many items are fried and not the best for you, so don't go here everyday.

My family that lives in Akron recently discovered this restaurant even though it's been here for years. I finally visited, and I got to enjoy it myself! EXCELLENT hotcakes! Seriously, if you're craving a good pancake, this is the place. I only tried to buttermilk, but they have a divine taste. They do have a tendency to absorb the maple... More
