“Great little diner!”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

Had a great breakfast here while in Stratford - you just don't see friendly little local cafes like this any more. Service was great - treat yourself.

“Delightful Diner!”
Reviewed June 1, 2012

Madelyn's charming ad and mission statement (It's not about making money...It's about feeding the world!!) caught our eye in the Stratford Culinary Guide. We went there for breakfast and were not disappointed: delicious food and a spunky and amusing server made for a delightful experience. She introduced us to such Canadian delights as "peameal bacon" and convinced us to take a pair of "butter tarts" for the road. If we lived nearby, we'd be regulars at Madelyn's>

“Decent fish but barely any chips”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

Ordered the fish and chips. The piece of fish was large and well cooked, but there were hardly any fries (esp. considering the price). Killer butter tarts, though.

Asked waitress for fried potatoes, was told the owner said no. Asked to speak to owner who was very rude to me and my guest referring to him as "this one".
