Great friendly local diner

Great local place. We ate breakfast. A bit busy but that's part of the charm. Sit at the bar. The 'scrambler' is really good and so is the 'griddle cakes'. Lots of food !

Love love love this place. The portions are great and tasty. Get there early during the school year to get a first come, first serve seat. (Go during summer for better availability.) Highly recommend the apple pancakes and sausage. Yum!

All hype, no goods. Disgusting cold, limp toast, disgusting cold, limp, charred bacon do not make an appetizing BLT. This place is resting on its laurels and should be avoided at all cost. I lost my appetite after the first bite. When I nicely complained, I got the offer of a new disaster. My appetite was gone and my husband... More

This was my second visit to Mickey's as the first appearance nearly blew my socks off. Initially confused about how to order, (No Menus) I was told by the waiter to try the skillet w/gravy on the side and toast for $7.25. The epic portions of food was mind blowing as two people could have been fed. Surely, reminded me... More

Great breakfast, more food than you can ever eat , step back in time. Great place for breakfast, especially on game day but get there early and bring cash.

Seat yourself. Often lines at the door but waits are short. Quick service no waiting on the wait staff which pays attn to detail and is always there to refill your cup or help. Great and varied menu. Large portions. A little heavy, but fairly wholesome. If you want to go light there is always eggs and toast. If you... More

A Madison tradition that is only open for breakfast and lunch (closed Mondays). Known for their Scramblers but check out of their diner food!

It's been here for 60 or 70 years. Come early or wait for breakfast. A classic. A local brought us here. Try the Reuben Omelet (like a reuben sandwich, inside an omelet). They call their breakfast potatoes

It's been here since the ,60s and, being across the street from Camp Randall has fed Wisconson Badger athletes and others daily. Not a "must see" by any means but an excellent off the beaten track joint for a good diner-type breakfast or lunch.

A must do. They have huge portions of wonderful pancakes. A half order is 1 pancake that covers your plate and is too much to eat for me. A full order is 2 cakes and my husband could only eat part of it. The line to sit was out the door to get in but very worth the wait. It... More
