My husband and I went there for an early anniversary dinner. They brought out lovely bread with a home made balsamic vinaigrette butter- which was really good. My husband had the seafood steamer/boil pot - it came in a bucket with crab, shrimp, clams etc. he said it was awesome and was a good value for all that seafood. I... More

My family ate dinner here with our children. It was the nicest meal we've had as a family. The building is so charming, a turn of the century boarding house. The staff was warm and kind. We enjoyed the crab and bacon stuffed mushrooms, fresh baked grainy bread and herb butter, bbq ribs and ribeye, homemade key lime pie. The... More

As a Valley resident, I always enjoy taking friends & realitves visiting to the Inn Cafe. A charming pioneer atmosphere & amazing food. I am not a quiche person, but their lobster quiche was absolutely amazing! My father-in-law thoroughly enjoyed the clam chowder. They use local food when possible & always tastes like a good home-cooked meal.

After reading the reviews, I guess we just hit it on an "off night". We went with another couple, and were asked ahead of time that we each pay for our own. We arrived first, and I informed the waitress (who to her credit was very polite and cheerful) that we needed separate checks, which she forgot about. One of... More

My parents having being raving about the lunch special they had here one day, the BLTAP. The bacon, lettuce, tomato, avocado and prime rib sandwich. The special came up again and I knew my husband and I had to try it. We called for a lunch pick up and they told me it would be ready in ten minutes. And... More

I enjoy going here for the historic ambience, but the food is good too. Always neat and clean (well decorated) and excellent service.

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
