Food is very good. Service sometimes is a little slow, but overall a very good diner. I enjoy the panini sandwiches. They have some nice selections. The place is kept clean.

Driving around Uniondale searching for a diner to eat on a Sunday morning proved to be a TASK! All the diners had lines through the doors like Long Islanders don't cook breakfast on Sundays. We ended up at Colony because it had the shortest wait time of 20 minutes. We weren't that impressed with it on our first visit, but... More

I don't know how this diner got the vote for best of long Island before, but our breakfast is pretty bad comparing to other diners I've been to, dry sausage, watery coffee, soggy waffle, and a French toast was so subpar, I think it was store bought.

We dropped by while driving along the Hempstead Turnpike. It was 8pm and we were hungry. The place looked cool from the road. It had neat Vegas type decor and was really clean. The staff was friendly. The menu had a lot of choices! I ordered the Cobb Salad--It was huge! We also had fish and chips. Pretty good. Overall... More

Huge place with lovely decor. Something for everyone in this menu: basic meals plus tons of omelettes and pancakes and eggs Benedict.

When undecided as to a 'type' of cuisine to enjoy, this is the place to go. Menu is rather hefty with the varieties and choices available. The recently revised panini and open sandwiches are wonderful. Love the Pilgrim panini.

The menu is extensive, very extensive. From breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, late night snacks there's always something to satisfy. The full dinners offer soup/salad, entree and choice of dessert, which lately the showcase has a more limited selection. Still plenty too choose from. The panninis and wraps are overstuffed. Especially delicious is the buffalo chicken and jack cheese wrap. The... More
