Definitely the place to have breakfast. Price reasonable, staff excellent. Our group of 30 were all very happy. We all got served together and all our meals were hot and plentiful. Top marks from us.

We were recommended the restaurant in the colonial palms by 2 drivers during our trip so decided to check it out as we were also staying there. The food was great and the service / friendliness of the staff topped it off.

Thank you for your response. My wife stives hard to provide a consistent quality menu every day. After 45 years at the job, this will be her last restaurant, so enjoy the meals
