“Best Value”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Family run restaurant with very good breakfasts and lunch selections. Excellent location on Wellington Street just South of Horton Street with loads of parking easily accessible off Wellington.

Staff are long term, friendly and efficient with top drawer service.

The menus are for breakfast or lunch all day with selected specials listed on a menu board just inside the front door.

Soups are home made and are served piping hot on request - I like hot soup!
Their beef dip, onion soup combination is always a winner since I prefer using the soup base as a dipping sauce in place of the gravy, not bad gravy, just my choice.

My partner prefers their Montana egg breakfast which is two eggs on pea-meal bacon with real home fries done on the grill along with Hollandaise sauce. Excellent choice for breakfast or for lunch.

Never have had a poor meal here and we attend quite often.

A real winner! Give it a try, you won't go wrong and the owners are always there - that tells you something.

“Nice breakfast”
Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Very nice breakfast as always. I have been going to this place for over 30 years for breakfast and always friendly service and very good food. Wait staff are the most friendly and attentive and always smiling.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Came for brunch. Breakfast was just okay. Sandwich for my daughter was just okay too. I didn't like the coffee. Our server was friendly and efficient.

“Old school, and not good old school.”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

The easiest way to summarize Family Circle is to just say the choice of desserts is either 1. Jello with a dried out whipped cream on top, or 2. Rice pudding. Sound old school? Oh yeah, and not old school done well.

If the prices were more reasonable, I could be more forgiving, but there's no real value here. Whenever I'm on Wellington driving by, there seem to be fewer and fewer cars in the parking lot. They really need to reinvent themselves into something that caters to the tastes of today, and not 1975.

“Down to earth servers and good food”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

We were staying at a local Inn and came here for breakfast. The servers were waiting for us as we entered and were just attentive enough to be there when needed and yet not be invasive. We really enjoyed their friendly, honest manner and the food was pretty good too. It was reasonably priced for what you received.
