Was there on a Saturday noon. First time. Lots of people there, it is an old Long John silver's building. Many seemed to be eating breakfast. Decided to try the hot beef sandwich.

service good and prices - family friendly - decor is dated but prices are good and so is the food - you get seated easily and not a great deal of time waiting for the food

The place isn't much on ambiance, but you won't be disappointed by any of the breakfast entrees, or the price. Good eats at a cheap price.

Family Affair Cafe is just a family restaurant, no frills, just good food for the money. Service is prompt and portions are ample. The menu offerings are numerous, be it breakfast, lunch or dinner. We stop there often for a good meal anytime.

When you pull up to the restaurant, it definitely doesn't look elegant and when you get inside, it is even more discouraging HOWEVER the food is yummy, especially for the price! They have great breakfast specials, including skillets. My boyfriend and I ate breakfast there for less than $12 including drinks.
