Our Story

In 1983, Lazo Saltourides and his brother Gus, were determined to bring a well rounded menu with a New York diner environment to Torrington.  Before you could say Feta cheese and Spinach omelette, the doors were opened for business in September 1984.  


Now affectionately called “Twin Co” by Torrington locals, Twin Colony was envisioned as the sister diner to White Colony Diner in Waterbury which the brothers previously owned prior to building the diner in Torrington.


When it opened, a cup of soup or coffee cost about 80 cents. Though times and the economy have changed, one can still find reasonably priced, home-style cooked meals that are served with a smile from our experienced staff.


The Saltourides family and the staff of Twin Colony thank you for your continued patronage over the years.  Enjoy Twin Co’s warm hospitality and great food all year long!
