A bunch of us ordered from Family Tradition. I did not want to buy a $12 Omelet. BIG Mistake on my part. It is enough to feed 3 people. Looked so good! I got the burger and was pleased that they made burgers for breakfast....More

We go here frequently for lunch. We like to have the No 1 breakfast at lunch time. This is always very good and the service is exceptional. The prices are reasonable so it is a good value.

Real home cooking if you order something that's not deep fried. You'd think your mom was in the kitchen. Hot beef, scalloped potatoes and ham - awesome. staff great!

Quite possibly the best breakfast in Northern Minnesota! Country fried steak is as good as I’ve had anywhere

We stopped at the Family Tradition Restaurant on the way to our cabin. I was going to order the turkey/mashed potatoes/gravy, but was disappointed to hear their turkey was deli meat. I decided to order the roast beef/au jus sandwich with swiss cheese.($7.99 with chips)...More

Busy place! I can see why! Cute little cafe style restaurant. Looks like an old A &W, extremely homey inside. Food was great! Special was 2 eggs, 2 sausage (choice of meat) and a homemade muffin for $4.99. Delish!! Service was quick for how busy...More
