In NJ this would be a diner. Abundant and just plain good food for breakfast: choices of pancakes, eggs, meats, cereals, juices, etc. Staff is friendly and efficient and customer orientated. Weekday specials. Full prices on Sunday and a day not to go except before 10AM

We visited Family Tree for breakfast, after friends recommended it. The place is huge, and it has a bustling clientele, but it seems like people are there for the large portions and the cheap prices, rather than the quality and service. The tables were so close together that the server bumped me every time she went by. The service was mediocre, as the waitress could not remember who had which dish, forgot to bring items, and made almost no effort to accommodate our group. We are not the type of people to make a fuss at restaurants, and are usually very forgiving and tip well over 15%, but this was not good service. The food was less than average, with soggy home fries and no refills on coffee. I am not hard to please and often give restaurants average to high ratings, but this place truly does not deserve one.

Our group arrived for breakfast and were quickly seated and greeted. The food came out hot and cooked the way we ordered it. eggs, bacon,home fries and toast all the way around. the only complaint was it took too long to get the coffee refilled. I noticed another group had two coffee pots on their table and wondered if I should have asked for the same. The place was busy and the price it was a great deal.

A very busy place and when your meal arrives, you know why. Lots of tables, and many places for large groups - we had 11 in our group and had a wonderful corner area to sit in an L-Shape setting. Made for easy conversations.

A couple of carafe's of coffee were brought to the table and pitchers of water as well. We had egg dishes, omelettes, pancakes, and french toast. Everything was good! Home fries are real potatoes and very tasty and good portions. French toast was nice, pancakes HUGE. I should have tried the Greek omelette, it looked delicious.

Excellent service, comfortable place and the price is very affordable. Highly recommend.

Our first time here - we ordered the beef souvlaki. The marinated meat and fresh pita were very good. Greek dressing comes in decanters on all the tables. The tender beef came alongside a plate of Greek salad with tomatoes and feta. My daughter lamented the predominantly iceberg lettuce instead of greener leaves, while i wished for olives. Spacious, pleasant dining area with a liquor license.
