Homemade Food and Expert Eyecare
There is a place, right here in Edmond, where families can still go to get a home cooked breakfast and not pay dinner prices. Inside, you will find homemade biscuits, fresh omelets packed with your favorite ingredients, and the enticing aroma of coffee filling the air. And that’s just the morning menu.
The place is called Colby’s Grill and it is located at 511 S. Broadway. Open from 6:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday and offering drive-thru as well as carry out, Colby’s Grill is quickly becoming a regular stop for many Edmondites.
“It’s growing really good. In fact, it’s doing much better than we anticipated at this point,” said owner and chef, Colby Mason.
Each morning, after arriving at 5:30 a.m., Mason takes the time to prepare all the fresh vegetables and meats that will fill the omelets. Every day, popular soups such as potato, beef stew and gumbo are prepared along side the hand dipped chicken fried steaks, onion rings and chicken fingers.
“One of our most popular lunches is our fried onion cheeseburger,” he said. “However, we offer a variety of salads and one of our most popular lunches is our chicken salad stuffed tomato, served on a bed of lettuce. Our idea is to offer something that every member of your family will enjoy.”
Colby’s Grill takes pride in knowing that nothing is brought in frozen. They know that while it may take longer to prepare each day’s food, in the end, it is the customer that is rewarded. “We will spend as much time as it takes to make sure that the chili is right, or that the dessert brownie covered with ice cream and hot fudge is just the way that you want it.”
Mason is also confident in the serving staff at Colby’s Grill. “The staff that is going to serve you is quick. They understand that you don’t want to wait around for your food. And your coffee is never going to sit around on empty here,” he said.
There is great pride taken in the diner atmosphere. There is seating for 52 and you can be sure you won’t leave hungry. Colby adds, “Come in and see us. You’ll love it.”
Premier Eyecare of Edmond
According to Dr. Julie Moore, Premier Eyecare of Edmond simply offers the best care. “It is our customized care,” she said. “I believe that if you experience the care that you will receive here, you will not want to go to anywhere else.”
One step into Premier Eyecare, located at 2841 N.W. 173rd Street, and you will immediately know that you are not in an ordinary optometrist office. Dr. Moore and her husband and co-owner, Adam have designed an almost “boutique” style atmosphere, intended to create a memorable event so that you won't dread your next eye exam.
With an extensive education ranging from a Doctor of Optometry from Northeastern State University to a B.S. in Biochemistry from the University of Oklahoma, Dr. Moore has a broad range of knowledge.
She is quick to tell you the main reason for beginning her own practice is to provide comprehensive eye care for the whole family. In addition to diagnosis and treatment, she wants to ensure patients that they have a thorough understanding of their condition, statistics of genetic transmission and treatment options.
“I will spend all the time necessary, not only with the examination, but the education on how to protect your vision as well.”
Dr. Moore is a member of the Oklahoma Association of Optometric Physicians, the American Optometric Association and she is very active in InfantSee, a public health program providing no cost eye assessments for infants, 6-12 months old. She also played a valuable role in the passing of Senate Bill 1795, which was passed in Sept. 2007 and will be enforced 2008, requiring all children have at the very least a "vision screening" upon entering kindergarten, first and third grades.
“This is a great start, but a comprehensive examination is truly needed to detect ocular-motor deficiencies or color blindness and other ocular conditions which can affect vision & learning,” she said.
