This is a charming restaurant with such a big brunch menu for such a little place. A bit like a little chalet. We were there for brunch. There is a wide selection of Eggs Benedict as well as crepes. You can choose from sweet or...More

Madlons is a cute little restaurant off the beaten path of Big Bear. They have nice little touches like the Amuse Bouche and palette cleansing sorbet and the jalapeno soup is amazing! The meat was a tad tough but the flavoring was great. We liked...More

We had an amazing French Brunch of very Berry petite pancakes, Smoked Salmon Hash, Crabcake Benedict, Banana Fosters waffle and Ham, Cheddar Chive with Sundried tomato waffle. Cordon Bleu Chefs accompanied by French music playing in the background made a perfect Valentine Day meal

Gosh how I LOVE Madlon's. We have a cabin up in Big Bear and I stop in here for breakfast every time we go up there. Their all-you-can-eat in any-combination-you-can-think-of waffle menu is the best. That's right: one set price, all the FRESH and fantastic...More

Madlon's offers both mid-week and 'early bird' dining with 5-6 main courses from which each dinner may select. Appetizer, soup or salad, house wine, and dessert are included. Excellent meals at a very reasonable price. The regular menu, higher priced, is also supplemented with specials....More

Let me preface this review by saying that the manager did try her best to remedy what was a disaster of a breakfast. My group of girlfriends ate here last year, and we decided to return because we previously enjoyed the food. The restaurant was...More
