Excellent kitchen cooking. The cod is excellent and chicken is too. Make sure you go hungry! This is located not far from I-275 for those that are traveling.

I visit the Colonial Cottage almost every Sunday morning for breakfast. They don't just have great food, the service is great as well. Make sure to ask for Pat or Beth you won't be disappointed.

My wife and I were visiting our son in Erlanger and before we left today wanted to get something to eat. We stopped at the Colonial Cottage (1st time) and had a wonderful lunch served by a great waiting crew. First, the menu is southern comfort food whether its breakfast, soups, sandwiches, dinners, etc. and they have daily specials to... More
