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!!

This hole in the wall was quite refreshing. Outside coffee for those waiting for a table. Very good menu with many choices. We had the cinnamon French toast. Highly recommended.

We decided to eat here in honor of my friend's brother - Colby lol. The place had strong reviews and raved of a great breakfast. We were super satisfied with our food and the service was great. My one and only complaint is that there was zero air flow and it was very very warm. My mom would have insisted... More

Other than the lousy parking in Portsmouth, this is a great place for a meal. Breakfast was delicious and the place is quaint and charming.

I have been to Colby's twice and it was delightful both times. My friend and I always get the eggs benedict and some coffee. Eggs benedict is creamy, well cooked, and just delicious. Coffee is unlimited refills and service is great. It is first come first serve in a small cafe, so get there early!
