“Quick pick up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

A place to get a quick bite to either eat in or take out. Fast service and decent food. Don't go on the afternoon the public schools have a half day...crazy crowded.

“Just get Ice Cream”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Or maybe a grill cheese... don't go for good food, go for the atmosphere and good ice cream!! Honestly though, if you drive a little further to West Medford, you could get even better ice cream.

“Best Ice Cream Around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

The title tells the main feature of the restaurant; it's our favorite place for ice cream, and there are many around.
But if you're looking for a tasty lunch you won't be disappointed, either. The signature meals and regular standbys at Colleen's are worth the trip as well.
It's the perfect spot for an ice cream cone or sundae, with or without a meal. And service is always given with a friendly smile.

“Great Desserts and cute atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Love the large well done Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter Cookies. But the best is the HOT FUDGE to put over your ice cream or other desserts. I think it's the old Brigham's Hot Fudge Sauce that was served in their ice cream shops. We get a container to go and put it over fresh berries and pound cake or other cakes...YUM! I want some now but they close at 10 in the winter or maybe 9.

“Great service, but so so ice cream”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

This place is great and fun for kids. The portions are very generous. Unfortunately the ice cream is just okay.
