Enjoyed breakfast but nothing extraordinary. Friendly staff. Typical menu - maybe they can branch out a bit.

Colby's is a breakfast and lunch place but on Sunday's they only serve breakfast. It is very small but very good! One pancake is the size of the plate! The french toast used homemade bread and was delicious! I got old ashioned oatmeal too and they provided brown sugar and raisins too! Worth waiting for I think!

The breakfast specials were amazing! Although the place was a bit warm the waitress was extraordinarily attentive and the food was delicious!

The food is great here. During the weekend there is almost always a waiting list to get in. The owner comes up with some very interesting specials.

Kinda a hole in the wall place with not a lot of space and therefore not a lot of seating. Service was OK, food was better.

We were directed to Colby's by another restaurant owner that was no longer serving breakfast. The place is very small, and there was a line up, but it was worth waiting for. The service was friendly, the food was fantastic! If you like the coffee mugs, you can them!!
