Typical diner food, extensive menu. Mostly a friendly staff and lovely owners, just not our favorite diner. Had 3 eat in visits: (1) questionable server issue, especially when they were obviously sick, (1) barely pleasant but tossed our food over quick enough and (1 last visit) did not care much for the food. I know Newtown residents who just love... More

The Blue Colony is a regular stop in our twice annual migration to Maine. Clean, quick and friendly service and good, decent diner food. Not this trip. At about 10:30 in the morning, I ordered an egg and sausage sandwich and my husband ordered an omelet. Dry, way over cooked eggs with crispy edges. Coffee tasted like the grounds had... More

Back when I lived in the area, this was a great spot to hit for a burger after the bars closed. I recently had to go back to the area and stopped for a late dinner- instant memories!! The place is steady with customers and for good reason, the wide menu and the food is great. If you've never had... More

All the baking is done there with traditional and delicious Greek desserts , cookies and pies and cheesecakes. Everyone using rt. 84 east or west should try it. It's very easy... More

The diner is like the old time diners with the same look and feel. Decent portions but definitely diner food. Hearty - OK and fits the bill.

Bright and clean large dinner with plenty of parking just off Exit 10 on I84. Very good service and a good selection of items and pastries. Visited for brunch and had an overstuffed Monte Christo. So stuffed I needed a doggie bag. Highly recommend!

It was ok for a diner. Ordered the Hamburger Deluxe and it was not a fresh hamburger, it was too perfect and flat to be freshly made. Cole slaw is the typical diner choice, good fries. My partner had a roast beef open hot sandwich. Plenty of food, but roast beef was a little fatty. I have to say, the... More

This is my stop anytime I'm heading East on Rt 84. This is a great local diner that's near the highway. The staff is friendly, the prices are fine, and portions are large. The food quality is top notch. I usually have burger or an omelette and I'v never been skunked always delicious.

This is our usual lunch stop when traveling between Philadelphia and Boston. It's always good, the service is always friendly and prompt, and the choices are enormous as you expect of an old-fashioned diner. We generally seek out traditional diners when we travel and this one fits the bill perfectly.
