Colonial was the first restaurant we visited when we moved here 36 years ago. Other trendier places have become our new favorite breakfast places, but when they were packed this morning, we opted for an old favorite. We got right in, the food was excellent, service couldn't have been better, prices were comparable to the other places in the area.... More

Ordered starter and main, and waited patiently. Waiter came after c 15 min to ask how my starter had been, I told him it hadn't arrived yet.

We have had breakfast and lunch there a number of times and have never had a bad experience. We recently had a 100 year birthday catered and no one had a complaint about the food.

We had breakfast here. Food and service were good. Selection fine. They did bring me a large OJ (3.09) instead of the small I ordered. However, what got to me was the price for our two meals. Maybe I have gotten spoiled with other diners where I have had full dinners for less - 27.48, so for a breakfast this... More

The staff was incredibly friendly. The food was fantastic and the portions were plenty. The menu has a large variety, including an amazing dessert selection. I really wanted to try the "kitchen sink sundae" but I didn't have enough room! I will make it a regular spot to eat when in town.

If you're in or passing through St Charles on Rt 64, this is the place to grab some food...or ice cream. We ate breakfast but they have a complete menu. the place has quite a history that you can read about at your table while waiting for you food.
