Eat here often. On the plus side, the food is simple and well executed.

On the minus side, the service teeters on abysmal. The cashiers are rarely even pleasant, and the order is wrong by one item /specification 8 times out of 10.

My husband and I happened to come across Colony Cafe one Sunday morning and boy were we sad - sad that we didn't come across Colony Cafe sooner! The breakfast ranks up there with those west side establishments whose reputation (and price) exceeds the quality and tastiness of the food. Great wholesome ingredients and cooked to perfection, it left my lips smacking for more. Particularly wonderful is the Cafe's one-of-a-kind latkes. Although they're not your conventional latkes, I'm sure that even the traditional latke lovers will be clamoring for more. What I also enjoyed about Colony Cafe is the service. Though I agree that the service my be "uneven" (per a prior review), this is no reason to avoid Colony Cafe. In fact, given the service at other west side eating establishments (which shall remain nameless), the service is more than adequate. And above all, the price is right!

Pros: food; ambience

Colony Cafe is a limited-menu eat-in or take-out restaurant where you order at the counter and they bring your food to your table. Tables are mostly outdoors on busy Pico Blvd although you're set back from the street and protected by a white fence and blue awnings. Indoor seating is available next door at the companion coffee shop/soft-serve ice cream counter that is really the Colony Cafe's other half. But expect some competition for tables at lunch from the Beverly Hills mommies with strollers set since the two areas only can seat about 40 people. Food selections are minimal - burgers and salads top the list - but the preparation is excellent, if sometimes slow. Hamburgers are moist, salty, and juicy with a special sauce similar to the In-N-Out style. Salads are big and well-seasoned. The Cobb salad is particularly tasty with chunks of real bacon and grilled chicken. Tuna melt is amazing with carmelized grilled onions. French fries are extremely good but served in portions too large for one person - expect to share. And if you like garlic, the garlic fries are mandatory. The counter staff tend to be high-school age and the recent vintage of the restaurant means service is sometimes uneven. Grab a frozen yogurt or soft-serve ice cream at the coffee shop next door to round out your meal. Recommended, even if that means I'll be competing with you for a seat . . .

Pros: Great simple lunch fare.

Cons: Noisy and limited outdoor seating, uneven service.

We went here on Saturday and witnessed a ridiculous crew of amateurs running the place. The person behind the counter interrupted our order twice to continue a conversation with a colleague. "What are you doing this weekend?...." oh sorry -- what did you want? Couldn't remember after three times that we wanted it to go. It still came out on a regular plate.

The beverage service was just as bad. No milk, cream, or anything on the counter. The girl then got some out of the refridgerator -- and reprimanded my wife -- no no no no! when she tried to take it away from the counter to the coffee station. I've never seen anything quite like this. The people who were waiting behind us left. There was no one else in the place. And the table we sat at (wo wait for the sandwich) was filthy.

Pros: Looks nice from the street.

Cons: Totally incompetent staff, mediocre food.
