On a chilly Saturday at 7am, nothing could be warmer than the reception given to the Lake Wales Football team at the Lake Wales Family Restaurant.
Their motto “Where Friends Are Family” was widely demonstrated when owner Frank Papadopoulos treated the whole team to a big breakfast complete with eggs, bacon, sausage, home-fries and a stack of pancakes. Promptly at 7AM, a steady stream of breakfast dishes flowed out of the kitchen as three servers dedicated their time to quickly deliver breakfast to the hungry team.
“I love giving to the community; when you give to the community it comes back to you” says Frank “They all come to visit me; the locals, the police, firemen, they all visit my restaurant”
After a hard-fought game on Friday night, everyone was in good spirits as the team and coaches enjoyed some laughs and a great breakfast together early Saturday.
The Lake Wales Family Restaurant has been a proud supporter of the community as evidenced by a wall filled with plaques and awards thanking them for their sponsorship and support. Soccer, baseball, softball; you name it….the Lake Wales Family Restaurant has probably sponsored it!
Their dedication to the community and their customers along with their kind hearted spirit has given them the reputation for truly being a family restaurant that makes you feel at home!
