We are a small diner in a small town. We serve breakfast until 11:00am and on Sunday we serve breakfast only. We freshly ground our beef which goes with our motto, Home of the Worlds Best Burger! We also serve beer and wine.
This firm is only open for breakfast (must order by 11:00 when they switch the grill for lunch) and lunch only closing at 2:00 and not open in Sunday. We both had burgers and fries which were great and hubby had an amazing chocolate shake. The grill is small and they can get backed up on orders so try to eat early.

Love this place. I go here for lunch often and I am never disappointed. The ladies that work here are super friendly, even when it's busy. Their sandwiches are simply delectable and I am in love with their Italian sodas. If you are traveling through Colfax this is a must stop!

Sol Vallarta is a Colfax institution. You get family-style Mexican food and plenty of it at a reasonable price. The meal starts out with warmed tortilla chips and homemade salsa, while you study your menu and make your choice. I often order the chicken carnitas or a cheese burrito with refried beans and rice. Add a side salad to the mix along with the burrito.

That's what I call it. But really it's a peanut butter frost. On more than one occassion i've been tempted to do the drive from Seattle to Colfax just to get one of these, true story. My waistline is happy that it's not closer.

Events on Main has coffee drinks, fresh scones, other bakery treats, and a wide variety of lunch items, from soups and sandwiches to salads and combinations. There are intimate tables in one room, with a large room suitable for spreading out, which is also reserved for luncheons and meetings, even rehearsal dinners. The building is unique. The cakes are from Sage Bakery, and are delicious and generously sliced.

Just what we expected from a fast food joint. Decent burger and fries. Easy stop on the way through town. The dining room was plain, but adequate. We all had burgers and liked them.

It is at the edge of Colfax and handy to eat at or buy takeout. What can one say about Subway? The food is reasonably healthy and easy on the wallet for the budget traveler !

(AKA Snake River Bar & Grill) We drove down to scout out future RV & fishing trips, and stayed for lunch. The menu looked suspiciously expensive for what I thought would be just a seasonal greasy spoon. WRONG. I ordered a Turkey sandwich and was rewarded with a huge offering on nicely toasted sourdough, with thick sliced Turkey and Lingonberry cream cheese! It was great. My friend ordered the special, a pulled pork sandwich with fries and slaw, he loved it. If I travel back to this place, I'll make sure to bring an appetite.

Service for my takeout order was fast and friendly, but I personally didn't care for the pizza, being a thick crust, and not very good crust, and the sauce having a canned sauce taste to it. It was certainly ok considering the location and lack of dining options in general, but not to my liking.

The service was good ( we were the only one there)
The decor is 1970's with plastic seats and Chinese elevator music in the background.
Eddy still serves the food
With that said, the food is not good. The chow main was so mushy you could use it as plaster. The fried rice was OK.
They do not serve any alcohol drinks.
