I am always pleased when I get a chance to stop in and enjoy lunch at Cafe. They do not try to do everything only 15 items on menu. Classic high quality lunch in the old school teacher nurses housing building when Palmer was a Colony. Great service and quality food must try.

I have enjoyed various occasions at the Inn Café. The old dormitory is fun to see and revisit early days in Palmer. Scot, the chef does a super job with his cooking whether it be lunch on a workday, Sunday brunch or special dinner events. Best prime rib ever. Desserts are spectacular. Intimate setting or family friendly.

Was in Palmer with family and just happened to see the Colony Inn Café and we decided to stop. Jay, our server was awesome. What a delightful young man. Very service oriented and attentive to each of his guests. Many he knew by name and interacted immediately. Since we had a toddler with us, he immediately asked if he needed... More

We both had the Salmon burgers, which were good. They also had a homemade Apple cobbler which was good. Mostly locals here, it seems. Since everything in Alaska is expensive, the prices here seemed on par with other places. Comfortable setting, friendly service

Always enjoy going there on Friday for the Bowl Salad Roll Clam chowder. Good service, nice old building. If you ever get to Palmer, this place is a must try!

The lunch we had at the Inn Cafe was absolutely the best we have had in Alaska. The soups are wonderful, as are the sandwiches. You can't go wrong when stopping here!

A favorite place to eat when in Palmer! Breakfasts are very filling and the service is warm and friendly, a great way to start the day! The lunch specials are wonderful, soup or chowder and a sandwich, and the historic atmosphere is very relaxing and comfortable.

Food is a bit better than average, could use more freshness and an update. Very comforting food however. Just give us a bit of different. The staff is friendly and welcoming and the place is very clean.

Lunch special is the way to go. Includes green salad, quiche and cup of soup. If you are lucky go on a day when they have corn chowder - it is so good! They have good quiche. Sandwiches are good too, but my preference whenever I go is for the special. Daily dessert specials are good too.
