...easy off/on access from the interstate. Popular with locals as well as travelers. Typical diner fare, nothing fancy. Good-sized portions. You can get in and out quickly, or linger over a cup of coffee if you have time.

As a Worcester native, I have been eating in diners for most of my life. The Blue Colony is not a Worcester lunch car but it is fabulous. Exceptional service, fresh food and very good coffee. Amazing cookies and pastries will tempt you at the...More
