We were looking for a spot to eat before going to the Huntington, and Colonial Kitchen was what we found. At 11:30 on a Sunday morning we had a ten minute wait before we were seated. Once we saw their extensive affordable breakfast menu, we saw the allure. It was certainly not the physical surroundings which looked like it hadn't been updated since the 60s or 70s. There was paneling on the walls and kitschy dolls and plates in display cases.
I got the tuna melt, my husband got the club sandwich, and our aunt opted for the burger. The sides were either french fries, salad or potato salad. I opted for the potato salad which had more egg flavor than I cared for. I wasn't impressed. The fries, which my husband ordered on the side were large and reminded me of those you get at Red Robin. I think our aunt got the best side with the salad. It was quite large and seemed to have a good variety of veggies in it. We all liked our sandwiches. Mine in particular was on sourdough bread which was a good complement to the tuna. My husband's club was huge and could have fed two people. The prices were very affordable and the clientele consisted largely of families. The service was excellent and you could tell each and every one of the servers hustled. They also helped each other out if they saw the need. Excellent teamwork in that regard.
If you are in the Huntington Gardens neighborhood, I'd definitely recommend stopping here before a long visit.
