True to its name, this place serves colossal portions. The omelet was tasty and the biscuit was wonderful. No espresso drinks, but the coffee is great. It was a great place to hang out for an afternoon.

On Father's Day, we went to breakfast at the Colossal about 9:30. We did not have much of a wait, until we were outside enjoying a lovely spring morning. Located next to a church, things got somewhat crowded after 10:00, and there were several dogs...More

The food was pretty good. The atmosphere was ordinary. I don’t like ordering at the counter and tipping before the food is delivered (who started that idea?). Nobody checks after the food is delivered, so you’d need to return to the counter to get a...More
