Colin the Cellphone Addict is a character from the Diner Dash series. He is introduced in Diner Dash 2: Restaurant Rescue and continues to make several other appearances, namely the Avenue Flo series, Cooking Dash and DinerTown Detective Agency. He is usually portrayed as always talking on his cell phone and works at the Big Corp Tower for Mr. Big.

In DinerTown Tycoon, he made an appearance in Bistro Bay and his preferred ingredients are fresh cream, golden potatoes and baby spinach.

In Diner Dash: Seasonal Snack Pack, Colin appears as a vampire in the Crypt Café. There's nothing to fear though since he continues to eat normal food.


He has spiky hair that can be any of the colors matching his suit. Typically though, in most games, he has blond hair. He is rarely seen without his cell phone and smart suit. In most installments, Colin is shown with simple black pupils. However in Cooking Dash and DinerTown Detective Agency he's shown to possess blue eyes.

There's a small occurrence where his eyes appear brown in his concept art for Cooking Dash 3 (refer to gallery). As well as this, Colin appears quite different in his teen years sporting a pink mohawk, a black leather jacket, blue jeans with tears at the knees, and black leather shoes. He carried around a boombox during this time, blasting music (presumably punk rock) from its speakers.


Colin is very impatient and annoys other customers with his constant noise from talking on his cellphone. He tips highly and is in this way similar to Barb the Businesswoman (they both work at Big Corp). They are quick to order and eat.

Colin is rather inconsiderate and never realizes his phone conversations would disturb others. He can be quite oblivious of his surroundings due to this matter. Besides this he's usually shown with a laid-back look on his face when he's content and can come across as a suave businessman when he's not wrapped up in his phone. The later games even show him giving a sort of salute to the player whenever he's left idle (e.g. Cooking Dash 1 and 2; Garden Dash).


  • His name can come across as the pun, "Callin' the Cellphone Addict".
  • In Cooking Dash 3: Thrills and Spills, though he's usually called a punk rocker by Flo, the game gives him the title "Colin the Cacophonous", emphasizing the supposed terrible noises that emit from his boombox.
