This small, busy cafe, located on Hot Springs' main thoroughfare near the historic bathhouses, provided excellent breakfast service. We were seated in minutes at a cosy (but perfectly adequate) table, and beverages were promptly provided: cold tomato juice, hot coffee (the best on our trip), as well as ice water in petite mock Mason jars. A short stack of pancakes... More

This was my second visit and it did not disappoint! Cozy little place so it definitely can get crowded on weekends, but I was lucky to visit on a Friday morning this time and we were seated right away. They have a good variety of classic breakfast items (egg/bacon/biscuit combos, omelets, waffles & pancakes). I had the cranberry orange "muffin... More

Since the Pancake Shop is always packed and didn't have seating for larger parties, we went here instead. They quickly sat us and were more than accommodating. Though they were busy, our server really tried hard to make sure we were taken care of! We loved the food, the atmosphere, and the staff!

Food was filling, great price and tasted great! We were there on Labor day monday and a group of 7. We waited about 30 minutes for seating. Service was okay (not as friendly in this state) but we had what we needed.

Family friendly restaurant. Food was very good, as I can never pass up eggs benedict. Very busy on Sunday brunch time, so be prepared to wait outside (no room to wait on the inside). Staff was extremely friendly, and the hostess was especially nice. Bathroom was in an awkward spot, as you had to walk through the kitchen. Will be... More

We had a typical breakfast two eggs, bacon,home fries, and biscuits. Mine came with sausage gravy. everything was good except the amount of time it took for the food to come out. It was probably 35-40 minutes before we got our food. Also strange was the bathroom access was through the working kitchen.

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
