    Voted Best Neighborhood Cafe (St. Paul) by City Pages in 2012! The vibe here is quieter, homier, & generally a bit nicer compared to the ironically named joint in mpls; A great place to stay & chat."

    One of our diners called the egg and cheese on a biscuit "the most satisfying meal you can get for five bucks.” The scrambled eggs, thick cheddar cheese, and a homemade biscuit — are all first class. Read more

    Great biscuits. Very original pancakes. The pancakes are yeast raised and taste like eating a beer. I like it. Toasted bread is excellent too. There was a fairly long line but still quick to seat.

    In the unlikely event that none of the fresh pastries or deserts in the case are what you are looking for, be sure not to miss the basket of yesterday's selections that is still wonderful.

    The Colossal Cinnamon Rolls are delicious and great to share with a few people. The yeast pancakes though were not to my liking and a huge departure from conventional pancakes, so be cautious.

    Their pancakes are yeast-raised and called "flappers," so expect tons of girls in St. Paul to start dressing up as sexy pancakes next Halloween. Then you can thank Colossal. Read more

    Egg, cheddar, bacon breakfast sandwich for $5.50. This cute little cafe is a great little breakfast/brunch stop in our neighborhood.

    Get a "flapper" if you like a bit of yeast in your pancake. They are better than they sound! Try one as the wrap for a delicious breakfast sandwich.

    The yeast pancakes are more sourdough bread-tasting that are excellent with their jams; no buttermilk classic pancake taste here! Their omlettes are AMAZING!

    All of the food here is absolutely fantastic! Compare it to other higher end dining establishments in town. Colossal doesn't serve food, they serve cuisine!

    The Apple, Walnut, & Brie flappers are amazing and huge. You can easily split the small order and be fine. Great service, too!

    Brown butter blueberry maple muffin is the most fun muffin name to say. Incidentally it is also delicious.

    Great pay-at-the-counter breakfast and lunch spot. Do not pass up the jam! It is incredible.

    Amazing food, crazy busy, kind of pricy. Everything made from scratch cannot be beat. We'll be back.

    Everyone's yapping about their brunch, but the dinner is good too, especially the seasonal risotto.

    Outstanding food and Summit Saga on tap. Was there for dinner but brunch looked amazing.

    Tough go today. The gal at the register was quite unpleasant, the food was dry and "over heat-lamped". We have dined here often, but the past couple of times have been lackluster. Say it isn't so!
