We had party of 3 for late breakfast. Pancakes were great. Eggs prepared exactly like we ordered. The service was outstanding. The restaurant has charm and is very clean. Lots of local diners from the neighborhood. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Staff and owners are always friendly. Prices are reasonable. Decent selection of food items. Nice glass of wine for about $5. Quiet inside with ample seating. Easy parking. I go there often.

I went through a time warp today walking into this restaurant, it felt like the late 1960's, yep that's about the right decade. The restaurant has been around since the 1940's. We were seated immediately by a nice Asian gentleman. The atmosphere brought me back memories when dad and mom would drive their gas guzzling faux wood sided behemoth of... More

Good place for breakfast. If you are a big eater go with the Titan breakfast. They fresh squeeze their orange juice to order.

Having been here a few times I can say the experience is very consistent. Food is fresh, good and exactly what you want from an original diner. Service is incredibly friendly. We have only eaten breakfast here and all three times and it has been great each time! We also had seen that one of the scenes from the final... More

I like the low key atmosphere of this restaurant. Attentive wait staff and plain old good food. My daughter had already eaten lunch at school, but decided to try a couple spoons of their clam chowder. She found herself eating it all! It was really good!! Very lean corned beef--that's my measure of a good sandwich restaurant. All the meals... More

Make sure you get the home fries! The two of us had pancakes, eggs, crispy bacon, an omelette, healthy toast, coffee, and endless refills of coffee and water. Great prices. Great service. I would go once a week if I could.

If you don't ask for too much, you can have a reasonable dinner with reasonable price here. Typical American dinning. We ordered steak and was fine. Interior gave us the feeling that we were inside Musso & Frank Grill of Hollywood.

Colonial Kitchen is where we have our traditional giganza breakfast when we're visiting family. The portions are old-fashioned diner-sized, which is to say, HUGE. Kids love the pancakes...adults too. When you want comfort food or a great breakfast, this is the place to head.

Every time we come visit family in San Marino, we have to stop by and have breakfast here. My daughter is always looking for Rosa when we come in. She is the best!! Love the O'Brien potatoes and fresh squeezed orange juice. The decor is old fashioned and almost a time-capsule feel to it. It's peaceful. Five star every time!
