This is a great little local charm. We went for breakfast and everything was great. The service was great and everybody was very friendly. Most of all the price is right! Five of us are for $33 and nobody went hungry.

At Madison’s town Center you’ll find this local meeting place. Good basic breakfast and lunch for bargain prices (cash only). Service is friendly, but not speedy....after all this is where you come to find out all the town news.

Right in downtown Madison is this great little diner. The omelets and pancakes were great! We will definitely be back next trip to visit family.

Had breakfast with my wife here. The food was good and the prices were very reasonable. The server was polite and friendly, and quick.

If you live in Madison this is the breakfast spot. They offer early bird specials that are so cheap you can’t cook it at home for less. Be prepared to wait for a table though as the place is small, but the food is good....Only problem is some of the older locals tend to hang around and chat after eating so it limits available tables. Staff is friendly. Coffee is good and plentiful.More

I just had a very good breakfast at the Nifty 50. The Everything Omelet for $5.99 has to be the best deal in the area, three meats, five veggies, two, maybe three types of cheese....very good!!! I almost forgot, it comes with sliced fried potatoes...and a choice of bread. Coffee was on the weaker side in my opinion, but I’m typically a Starbucks Sumatra drinker, just as a comparison. If you hate the buxes you’ll probably like the coffee at the 50....BTW, at a $1.25 how can you go wrong!?!?!? Give it a try folks, you will not be disappointed and you’ll find the throwback atmosphere refreshing. Great service; prompt, attentive, and they got everything right!More

We stopped for lunch. Good sandwiches and all- day breakfast. We were very pleased! Note that the restrooms are down a flight of stairs.

Visited for breakfast. Very quaint interesting place. Good selection on the menu at reasonable prices. Dishes named after old cars. Huge portions as is the American way, but pretty tasty. Fascinating collection of old model cars and memorabilia. Pleasant staff.

Stopped in with some friends, it must have been pretty close to closing time, the food was good but the servent let us know we didn't have much time to eat it in no uncertain terms. Cash only
