Blue Colony Diner in Newtown, Connecticut

Blue Colony Diner at 66 Church Hill Road (near I-80 ramp) in Newtown, Connecticut. According to the Newtown Bee, Eftihios “Eddy” Marnelakis first opened the Greek-American style diner-restaurant hybrid in March 1973. It’s now run by his son George and his family. I was impressed by the piles of pastries and baked goods available for sale, including huge cookies. I had the challah French toast, which is a braided bread served at Passover and other religious holidays (baked in-house). It was quite good!
