Family Cafe to move, but not far

WICHITA — After 22 years at 2849 N. Broadway, the Family Cafe is moving in a couple of weeks — but not far.

Lewis Shurtz, who owns the restaurant with his wife, Vickie, estimates they're moving about 50 feet south.

Shurtz says his landlord renovated the building next door, so the restaurant will move there.

"It's all brand-new," he says. "It's going to be really nice."

The old building will be razed for parking.

The restaurant still will be open for breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday for what Shurtz describes as "home cookin'."

One change, though, is the Family Cafe will begin accepting credit cards. It's a big change, Shurtz says.

"We're really (an) old mom and pop here."
