No matter how large your family is, you will probably have guests at some point and you want them to be comfortable too. Most tables for the breakfast nook are either round, square, or rectangular. It is not very common to see an oblong table in a breakfast nook. The square or round table are used in smaller home where there is not as much room.
If you have a rectangular table then it is possible for you to have benches rather than chairs. A common layout for a breakfast nook set is the L-shaped bench around one corner of a rectangular table and chairs around the other two sides. There are many reasons you might want benches.

If you are running out of countertops space or cabinets for small kitchen appliances or kitchen linens then these storage areas are perfect, The storage can be for non-kitchen items like games or art project supplies.

In order to realize the full seating potential of benches the occupants need to sit fairly close, but that should not be an issue for family members. The need of some people for personal space is a good reason to have a combination of chairs and benches.
