Small restaurant for breakfast and lunch only. Specials vary each day with good choices. Worth the wait in line.

Hard to find for an out of towner, but worth the try. Eggs Irish were my favorite. The wait staff were very friendly.

Bad day? Go to Colby's. Bad week? Definitely go to Colby's. Comforting meal? Check. Life's ups and downs are a little bit easier when Colby is around.

What a gem! Amazing breakfast options - I suggest trying the cinnamon swirl French toast and made-to-order omelets. Quaint setting in historic section overlooks small dining area - very cozy and comfortable. Must visit for lunch too!
