This was our second visit to Madelyn's Diner and we looked forward to having the Eggs Benedict again and of course taking home some Butter Tarts. Happy to report that both did not disappoint!! Generous serving of Eggs benedict , great hollandaise sauce and ample serving of home fries. Our coffee and tea was topped up several times. Very reasonable... More

We were served with enthusiasm even though we were close to closing time (about 1/2 hr before). Great Fish & Chips and then the best local butter tarts for dessert! Always the place to visit for genuine down-home food!!

We spent 45 minutes searching for this gem during one of our previous visits, and it quickly became our favorite breakfast place! The plates are generous and the food is delicious! A good deal for the money! Madelyn's has a terrific staff - very down-to-earth and friendly. The service is quick and just what you want in a diner-type atmosphere.... More

We had great fish n chips there on a Friday evening. No problem getting a table, and the waitress "Sammie" was friendly and prompt. Worth a 20% tip! The fish was battered lightly and deep-fried perfectly, and the fries were superb. But to top it all off: the BUTTER TARTS are OUT OF THIS WORLD -- and NOT RUNNY (like... More

if you want a no fuss meal this is the place for you. Open kitchen, eat in or take out. Great fish and chips, and special of the day. (Pork chops) Best milkshake in town. If you have room after try one of the butter tarts...LARGE and buttery. Better still take some home.

Their specialty according to the waitress was fish and chips. So I got it. The fish was good English pub style. The fries were average at best. My wife got the Reuben sandwich was kind of a bomb. Minimal amount of meat and even less sauerkraut. It was more like a ham sandwich.

Madelyn's diner is very cute. There are 3 different areas that you can eat in, including a large patio. The restaurant overall was clean including the washrooms. There were 8 of us and we all ordered different items however all of the orders were from the lunch menu. The food was delicious and very affordable; we also did not have... More

Best diner in Stratford. Affordable and delicious! The staff is friendly and you usually don't have to wait long for your order. Outside seating is also available. They do not accept credit cards. Great place to check out!

Went for Sunday lunch and had there farmer sausage and eggs. Was really good as was the omelette my wife enjoyed. Fast friendly service and a covered patio to enjoy during the warm weather. Bring cash or debit because they do not accept credit cards.

We dropped in here for breakfast as he said it was a good place to eat and have a conversation as we hadn't seen him for a year. Place was dated but bright, when I am there for breakfast I am interested in the food and not décor. And yes I found my eggs Bennie great. Both the bride and... More
