Yes, it's the 50's again when you drop into Colleen's. Get a frank and a frappe if it's on special that day; otherwise try one of their soups or a sandwich. Every soda fountain delight from your real (or imagined) childhood. A time warp experience and tasty too.

Colleen' is a former Brigham's. Brigham's had the very best ice cream in the world. Colleen recognized the vale of quality and continued with the tradition. They now have a wide variety on quality sandwiches and soups. Good quality, good prices and great people.

We love the icecream parlor feel of this place. But, the prices are crazy high - not worth it, for everything from sandwiches to desserts.

Great ice cream and good lunches. This is a nice pplace to grab a dish of tasty ice cream, frappe, or quick meal. A nice alternative to the fast food shops.

After dinner at Carroll's, walked over to Colleen's for dessert. Really tasty ice-cream and the brownie was to die for!

This IS the place everyone goes for lunch, for an after shopping treat - There is a seldom a time the shop is not filled - the servers are always pleasant and seem to know pretty near everyone who comes in. While it will never be known for gourmet food, if you want a GREAT sandwich - and good soup... More

Nice family spot. Great place to cure your sweet tooth urge after all the good food in Medford. I was very judgmental of Medford center when I got here but this is another Gem! Everyone that worked behind the counter was friendly and personable! Loved it

We were staying locally and had eaten earlier in the day in Central Boston so we only wanted something light for dinner/supper. What we ordered fitted the bill satisfactorily. However the following night my wife and myself ate out at a local Thai restaurant while our daughters returned for a eat in meal. They enjoyed the cake and ice cream... More

Unfortunately I had a bad experience. The service took way too long, I only ordered a clam chowder and a lemonade but I was in there for almost 10 minutes. The clam chowder was way too small to be considered a ‘large’ and the pieces of clam were also too small for my taste and I felt that there was... More
