One of a small chain of full-service family restaurant/ice cream parlors operated by the fourth generation of the Anderson family, which began with a St. Charles milk route in 1901. Today seven Colonial Cafes range throughout the western suburbs, including two in St. Charles, as well as venues in Algonquin, Aurora, Crystal Lake, Elgin and Naperville. Settle in for a hearty breakfast, served all day, or sample salads, sandwiches, homestyle suppers and a full range of fountain treats.
Try the famous Kitchen Sink sundae, served in a unique sink dish. Other Colonial originals include the PBF Chipper, a tall sundae full of chunks of chocolate, peanut butter and fudge, and the Kahuna Krunch," chocolate-chip ice cream with a chocolate shell, a crisp waffle cone, caramel, banana, hot fudge, toffee, toasted almonds, whipped cream and cherry.
