Homemade syrup for your fluffy, huge regular pancakes or buckwheat cakes. I had two, but should have stopped at one.

I have lived in Hot Springs for 6 years. I have never seen advertising for The Colonial, but had remembered seeing it! What a delight! Friendly staff ! Really nice atmosphere! The food was divine! The Grits here are wonderful, not watery, nice and firm. Just a little salt. Heaven! Omelet had all fresh ingredients and the coffee was wonderful.... More

Good variety of omelets, breakfast sandwiches, waffles & pancakes. Great flavor, everyone in party enjoyed their choices. I really enjoyed the wild berry muffin waffle. Might be a "hole in the wall" but definitely not a "greasy spoon."

Not cheap but fantastic quality and an even better staff with a friendly attitude. The bacon is top-notch and the pecan waffles can't be beat.

This might have been one of the best southern breakfasts I have ever had! The homemade fluffy biscuits are to die for. We dined here on our 1st morning and at another spot down the block for day 2. Hands down this place was better for food, value and service. I saw a sign near my chair that they won... More

The ONLY place in Hot Springs for breakfast. I love to eat her whenever I'm in Hot Springs and it just gets better and better. The lovely ladies waiting tables are simply top notch, getting your food fast and making sure you never go thirsty. I usually have the Hungry Man but I found something even BETTER, the Wagon Train.... More
