The food is always great and the service is even better. I am with The Woman's Club of Aurora. We have lots of small meetings there and they always reserve a table for us.

Iating at the Colonial is like taking a time machine back to an earlier time, and its enjoyable. We treated our grandchildren to their "Kitchen Sink", and they loved it. And yes, they finished it. Well, OK, all three together finished it.

Colonial Café is a great community business. They donate to auctions and raffles for local non-profits.

My husband and I have been coming here since high school. We'd meet up with friends late at night for appetizers and ice cream. Then it became a go-to place for a casual dinner or breakfast/lunch after church. As parents, we enjoy coming here with...our daughter. As an active member of our school's Parent Teacher League, we've had great experiences partnering with Colonial for dining out nights to help raise funds for our school. The location is great, and many families enjoy a fun night out with others. Our favorite dishes include the Belgian waffle combo, meatloaf, fish tacos, and the mac n cheese with pulled pork. For dessert, a mint chipper really hits the spot!More

We bring our grandson here for breakfasts all the time. We also meet here for business mtgs over coffee. No matter what the occasion, the staff are excellent. They get to know your pre serenades and even have items ready before we've ordered. They know...my grandson by name and treat him wonderfully. Love the menu options and variety. Portions are large. Wife loves the fish tacos, I'd recommend the meatloaf. Regardless you can't go wrong here. Not sure? Ask a server, the will walk you through your tastes and suggest a great option.More

This is my “go to place” after my dental appointments. It is that psychological carrot that make the experience go better. At the Colonial, your always greeted with a smile and attended to quickly. The booths, which we always request are very spacious and comfortable....On this particular occasion, my wife ordered one of those “you can haveeverything on the plate” for $6. And it was no surprise when the breakfast of 2 eggs, 2 pancakes, hash browns and sausages got there, it was great. I ordered a simple fruit cup and one egg over easy. Like always, I wound up picking off my wife’s plate and we both left full and happy.More

my family & I came here recently to bring back great memories of growing up as kids eating here. the food was delivered very quickly but the appetizer was delivered with the food. (wouldnt have ordered it). 1 order was made incorrectly so there was...a long wait for that to come back. Water & beverages were not refilled until 10 mins after asking. bill took a while to deliver & was incorrect. The best part about the visit was the dessert!More

Our waitress was the highlight of our visit. She was friendly and attentive and offered recommendations on menu items. The restaurant itself needs a deep cleaning (sticky fingerprints all over the art on the wall and the booth). Overall a great visit, just as I...remember as a kid!More
