Brookfield's Red Colony Diner Returns

The Red Colony Diner in Brookfield opened last week. We stopped in and had a wonderful time. The food was delicious, the service was helpful and friendly and the environment felt safe and inviting. We split a cup of chicken noodle soup and a turkey club sandwich that came with a generous side of french fries and featured fresh hand carved turkey, juicy tomato and perfectly crisped bacon. The french fries were crisp, tasty but not greasy. We then enjoyed a slice of cheese cake and a slice of chocolate cream pie, which were both delicious. We spoke with owner George Marnelakis, whose father had the original Red Colony Diner where George worked in his youth before the family sold the business. George, who also owns the Blue Colony Diner in Newtown, admits to being a breakfast guy, saying one of his favorite items on the menu is the french toast, made with freshly baked hala bread. "I'm proud to open as we remember it," George said a few days before the opening. "We're back to an old school diner." The Red Colony Diner is located at 121 Federal Road in Brookfield, open every day from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., and offers take-out, curbside and dine-in options.
