“Friendly good eats”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Been going to Ma-De since becoming a local 15yrs ago. Where else can you get breakfast for two under $10, and participate in the good-natured ribbing with John and staff? Get your own coffee or be waited on, your choice. A regular stop for no frills breakfast that feels like home. Filled with paneling and pithy quotes on the walls. Locals in construction garb make way for the church crowd around 8 on Sundays.

“A great little find - like mom's cooking”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

I love this place - I have been going here for over 15 years sometimes driving over an hour to get here. It is a simple good cheap place to get a great breakfast. It is in an old lumber house and looks like it is from the 50's. If you are in the area for breakfast - I would highly recommend it.

“Good feelings, good food”
Reviewed January 13, 2012

Okay, so you want to have a comforting breakfast? Coffee on demand,
hotcakes, bacon, omlettes, sausage or just plain eggs and coffee. If you stop at tMa De Chat Shop - it's all there plus a warm and natural atmosphere, no aires, just good folks (like you) plus you're greeted like family.
I can smell the coffee already.

“The local place...”
Reviewed June 17, 2011

It's a little house behind the bakery that looks closed, but it's the local breakfast place. Just check out the sign. (Photo below,)You walk in and you seem to be in a big living room from the 70's with paneling and carpet that seem to date from that period. Cooking in what looks like the original kitchen, the cook crankily calls out finished orders, while the staff good-naturedly moves the food out. A customer comes in with a quilt made out of old ties (Looks very neat I might add) and breakfast for two for less than $10. It is what it is and doesn't pretend to be anything else.
