Great location and high quality food

I ride through Jells park and drop in to Madeleine's every few months on the way to the Dandenongs. It's a great stop for peace and all things green. I like the timber deck and view across the lake. The food is pricey however understandable when you consider the location. The staff are a little... read more

We have the most wonderful experience here, a cafe which is so child friendly my little boy adores going to order his Apple juice and cake and gets given marshmallows which is a huge win and they make him feel like a prince. I have also been here with friends for a birthday tea and champagne and the staff are... More

Madelines is in a very pleasant setting overlooking Jells Park and the lake. It's a nice spot to take friends for a coffee or to finish with coffee after walking the park trails. I have never eaten there so can't rate the food, but the muffins and cake with the coffee are good.

We were there for lunch, not very busy seated quickly and drinks served promptly. Food was a bit slow in arriving, they only had to dollop some dip on a plate, heat a small slice of tart and sprinkle on some lettuce and tomato on the side. The main problem came when we wanted to pay the bill and we... More

I came here with my 2 friends and our toddlers for lunch in early December. We were greeted by a friendly smile and seated within 5 mins with high chairs (no booking). The lady gave us water, crayons and paper straightaway. When we were ready to order she even gave us advice that the kids meals are quite big and... More

After a long walk in Jells Park we were relieved to have a pit stop at this cafe. We had a cuppa and scones which were delicious, especially the jam YUM!!

Lovely setting and the food may be good - didn't try it as the cup of tea I got to begin was so awful. One teabag in a pot of lukewarm water. Undrinkable.

We (hubby, myself and the dog) walk 10 kms, half way point is Jells Park and Madalines at Jells for a nice cold bottle of wine and a light late lunch. The wine has always been lovely, the meals are nice but vary as to the amount. Last meal was delicious but for the price minimal on the plate. Siting... More
