NEWTOWN, Conn. -- Who can resist the cozy booth of a diner? If you’re not drawn in by the often retro ambiance, you’re no doubt driven by the menu, mammoth undertakings filled with pages and pages of comfort food, not to mention unlimited cups of coffee.

You picked five of the top diners in Fairfield County as part of our continuing DVlicious series. All are being profiled this week with the winner selected at the end of the month. Don't forget to vote!

Blue Colony Diner, 66 Church Hill Road, Newtown, (203) 426-0745

Been Around Since: 1973.

Known For: Attentive, speedy and friendly wait staff along with the challah bread that’s so awesome customers order loaves to take home. Folks also rave about the insane desserts and the cookies that, one patron said, “are bigger than your head.” Other menu items with high marks: the matzoh ball soup, the Reuben with tender meat and perfectly textured sauerkraut, and the deliciously light Belgium waffles.

Behind the Scenes: Just like “Cheers,” where everybody knows your name, the longtime waitstaff – including one who has been there for more than 40 years -- always find time to chat while speedily taking orders and dispensing the Patty Melts. Oh, and it’s super accessible from I-84.

Voting ends Monday, Jan. 25 at 4 p.m. You can vote multiple times, provided it's once a day.
