This diner used to be amazing. I used to drive from Danbury to eat here. Now I live in Newtown and I have eaten here twice in a year and a half and was very disappointed both times. Food is very low quality. If it's not late at night there are so many better choices

This place is everything you expect of a diner. Old people and teenagers all meet up here for 24 hour breakfast. This is where you go when you want it done the right way with no gimmicks

I love the bacon cheese omelette here, they're cooked perfectly with the right amount of cheese and meat to egg ratio. Home fries are very good here. Don't recommend the specials- but I also don't recommend ordering steak and fish at diners, depends on your style. They have good fries and chicken tenders for children. Conveniently located right off exit... More

We travel to Boston regularly and always work the Blue Colony into our trip no matter what time of day or night we're traveling! Good food at good prices. A waitstaff that are top notch & friendly. Always pick up a loaf of their challah bread too. Great French toast, gyros, Rueben or pastrami and anything breakfast!

Pancakes and an egg sandwich. There were many more choices which might have merited 5 stars. Service was attentive without being pushy.

My family and I stopped for dessert and a bathroom break! Besides the rude European waitress... Our desserts were AWESOME! We will be back on our way home for dinner on Monday! Great diner!

It really is 'easy on easy off' and even though the place was hugely crowded on a Sunday at 1pm, we were seated and served quickly. The menu is huge. We stuck to Greek specialties (spanakopita, Greek salad) and were not disappointed. I used to rely on the eateries at Exit 25 (Waterbury) when driving north, but this is a... More

Great meal. Great service. Awesome treats to take on the road! Easy to get to and lots of signage. Only recommendation is to add sweet potato fries to the menu. We will definitely be back.
