I was headed for pizza, then decided I'd rather have soup and a sandwich. I'm glad I did! Very clean spot and friendly people all around. I'll be back for more of their pleasant hospitality.....and delicious eats!

This coffee shop , which was recently remodeled, is at heart a good old fashioned neighborhood find. The staples of bacon and eggs, club sandwiches, burgers, and fries are all there as well as those comfort foods we love, like homemade meatloaf and pork roll, egg, and cheese sandwiches.

Colonial is just like a diner only its in a strip mall. Great breakfast and lunch, just like traditional diner dining. Nice interior and comfortable booths and counter service.

I love this place and am glad they're back after their recent fire. Its an old-school diner with a counter and a line of booths. You get the picture.
