Great place for a quick lunch.

On our way back into town after a visit to the Stratford-Perth museum and before an afternoon theatre performance, it was most convenient for my wife and I to have lunch at Madelyn's Diner. Although they were out of rye bread, my turkey Reuben on wheat (an interesting variation) and my wife's... read more

We went to Madelyn's inbetween shows. It was about a 20-30 minute walk from the Avon Theatre. We had the smoked pork chops and Humungous Chicken. We would order both agian. Wait staff very good and fery friendly.

heard rave reviews and "don't be surprised if there are line ups !" I got a nice window table mid morning on a Sunday with ease. Choice of tables out on the patio or inside. Service was quick and efficient. Mugs are mismatched and juice served in plastic cups but who cares if the food is worth it right ?... More

Went for the famous bacon tarts but after walking from town, we decided to sit @ the counter (tables hadn't been cleared yet) to have early lunch. Hubby & I split a BLT in wheat. It came with fries and coleslaw. Very good. Son got a club sandwich & fries and found it filling. We bought 6 tarts ($15) to... More

I've been here for lunch a few times and it is fine if you stick to eggs bacon and sausage or sandwiches. The steak is a piece of shoe leather, just awful on the steak and eggs. Fish and chips are alright. Some airhead servers, just go up to the cash to pay the bill apparently they don't being them.... More

Place was busy, lots of staff, certainly reminds us of the "old" diners of the past. From ordering to delivery, it took the better part of 30 minutes...could be better. Fancy design pancakes like mickey mouse for granddaughter were the highlight for her. I had a toasted western which was "double" size and quite tasty, My wife had an egg... More

It was 7 pm and I was hungry. I ordered the double burger with peameal bacon and cheese on a gluten-free bun (extra $s) with fries. The fries were cut especially long and tasted good but not many fries. As I expected the hamburger sandwich was too tall to bite into so I took out one of the patties and... More

This place is a tradition when coming to Stratford. The service is good, the food consistent, and the butter tarts are amazing! We always try to take some back with us on the airplane!

This is a wonderful example of what I conjured up in my mind when I think of a diner. I had an egg salad sandwich which was delicious along with sweet potato fries. I couldn't resist the butter tarts - the sign out front calls them the best in town but I must say mine was the best I've had... More
