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

Scoped the place out the night before and decided this was where we wanted to eat our breakfast. Cozy little place with local atmosphere, not iHop or Cracker Barrel for sure. Not that I don't like those places, just always prefer to check out the local flavor when traveling. Got there about 9:30am - place was packed (as expected) -... More

We were attracted to this place because it's been voted by magazine Southern Living as one of the best places to eat breakfast and they were right. I had the plain waffles with apple compote and butter, they were delicious. The eggs and sausage links were tasty too, my eggs were over easy and cooked just like I like!

We travel to Hot Springs twice ever summer. And both visit are never complete with breakfast the Colonial. Very small, usually a wait to get a table and you can't be picky about where you sit...but breakfast is wonderful!!! Perfectly cooked eggs and hash browns. Great tasting coffee. A malted pecan waffle to die for. The waitstaff is super pleasant.... More

Delayed service and a meal that does not match the specification on the menu is not a good start. American pancakes are soft, risen and fluffy aren't they? And if you serve 4.5 inch, flat, hard pancakes when the menu promises 7 inch American pancakes you are bound to dissappoint! Also if American pancakes and waffles are the special fair... More

Food and service was average. My omelette could have used a little more savory. I would probably not visit this dining establishment again.

Best breakfast spot in Hot springs Huge variety and all good Bacon is spectacular and don't miss the pecan waffles. Ask for the "hash" fries for breakfast

We arrived her 5 minutes before they closed, but were met with total kindness and respect. We did not feel rushed. The food was great. Our waitress even offered us visitor brochures to Hot springs. Will eat here again when I return.

Thank babusIndiana
