I had some appetizers, massively overpriced and not very good. I do not recommend this diner. This was the second time I have been there and I thought maybe after much time had passed it would have gotten better ... alas .... NO!

Had two eggs over medium with bacon, potatoes white toast and apple juice. Cost $12.87...a little much about $1.50 more than most. Food was good...will go back again.

Food is very good. Service sometimes is a little slow, but overall a very good diner. I enjoy the panini sandwiches. They have some nice selections. The place is kept clean.

Driving around Uniondale searching for a diner to eat on a Sunday morning proved to be a TASK! All the diners had lines through the doors like Long Islanders don't cook breakfast on Sundays. We ended up at Colony because it had the shortest wait time of 20 minutes. We weren't that impressed with it on our first visit, but... More

I don't know how this diner got the vote for best of long Island before, but our breakfast is pretty bad comparing to other diners I've been to, dry sausage, watery coffee, soggy waffle, and a French toast was so subpar, I think it was store bought.
