is an easy-on, easy-off stop for me and my family. When I head west or down to NYC for business, I find myself stopping there ... the food is reasonably good, cheap and quick, but even better, the place has a small town feel to it. It is always crowded and every time I visit, there are always those happy, "good to see you" conversations among the locals and regulars and owners. It always feels like "home" to me, even though I am a wicked outsider - just passing through.

The Blue Colony is in Newtown, CT. I am saddened and pray for those people in that community. What a horrible day.


One of my favorites

First thing I thought of when I heard of Newtown, CT


The Route 25 Gastro Tour.

Sometime, you should head south off of I-84 and take Route 25 down to experience some excellent roadside hot dogs, ice cream stands, diners, etc. The drive is nice, and it's been profiled on TV before. It's worth looking into.


Thanks, I'll give it a try sometime. *

Agree with your sentiments. I felt the same thing when eating there. My wife said they used to go there after church - when they lived in Newtown.


Been there a number times.

I remember playing Centipede at the diner while my dad took a nap in his Kenworth. I think my grandfather backed into a car there once. Made them not so friendly towards truck drivers, or at least older ones that tend to rub a little here and there.
