This was the first time in a long while since I ate here. A good family style place to dine- Many menu items to choose from- Not a fast food place. Had the fried chicken. Took about 20 minutes from time of order as stated on the menu- so if in a hurry order something else. Chicken was steaming HOT,... More

The parking might be a little on the short side but the food and service are definitely on the up side. Fried chicken is as good as any. Cat fish also outstanding. Service is terrific.

We went for breakfast with friends who are regulars. There is a wide selection of breakfast dishes many including traditional dishes and ingredients - country ham, goetta, catfish and lots more. Terrific omelets and many good choices for dessert. In business for 80+ years and going strong. Check out the web site for the menu and more details.

I'm so glad I studied Tripadvisor for the best places in the Northern Ky. area to eat. Not just Florence Ky, but the surrounding communities as well (I usually just look at the Florence area). I saw that Colonial Cottage had many good reviews and featured great home-style food. I am a believer now. Bobby (our server), knows how to... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Northern Kentucky. It's a family-owned restaurant that has been in business since 1933. Their specialties include homemade pies, catfish, goetta, hot slaw, salmon croquettes, cottage ham, beef barley soup and a Kentucky Hot Brown. Every one is delicious. Prices are reasonable. And serving staff is friendly.

The best blackened catfish in town. Goetta and eggs great way to start the day. On the lighter side hot spinach salad. Fried chicken is fantastic! Can't go wrong at the Cottage.

Have to say that Colonial Cottage is one of my favorite places for breakfast. The restaurant is clean. The wait staff is extremely accomodating and friendly. The food is just plain good. Nothing fancy for the breakfast menu but a wide selection and GOETTA! Their goetta is prepared as it should be and is a regional food that is sometimes... More

Spent the night in Florence and was looking for some breakfast Saturday before heading out for a ball game. Bob Evans was an absolute mad house so we went with plan B. I found it while surfing that morning and wrote it down as a backup. So glad I did because it was only minutes away and the food and... More

The food and atmosphere was top notch. Nothing will ever top Momma's biscuits and gravy but this place is delicious! Can't wait to return.
