My wife & I went so see a play in Stratford, Ont. last weekend(Shakespeare in Love), and decided to try Madelyn's Diner for dinner. I was really glad we had the "dinner experience" at Madelyn's. Although it seemed the menu was geared to those 60+ years old, the menu was quite diverse, was all fresh & homemade(including all the pies),... More

Make no mistake, this is a no frills diner, but I had the best smoked porkchop ever here. I was advised to have the fish and chips and saw others doing so, but I had been told that the area was known for the pork products produced locally so when I saw the smoked chop, just had to try and... More

I was wowed by the fab taste of the pecan butter tart. My banquet burger, fries and gravy, accompanied with excellent creamy cole slaw was also very good in this modest diner. My wife's and sister-in-law's fish and chips were also very fresh, crispy and delish. This diner comes highly recommended, yet not expensive. It is very popular and crowded... More

This was one of my favourite breakfast spots in town. Good affordable eats, lots of coffee, a current newspaper of some sorts and good service. Tarts are a superb bonus!

Ok, it's a diner and the atmosphere is Formica and seat yourself, not gourmet. But the fish and chips were good (light batter, home-cut fries, creamy coleslaw) and the Humungous Fish special with cheese was enjoyed by another member of our group. We shared a piece of blueberry pie which was just okay (crust was a little thick and chewy).... More

I've come here for breakfast a few times and it is always really good. I did come for lunch once and had a Caesar salad and it was good too. The atmosphere is not too great. I would come back for breakfast again.

We ate at Madelyn's for the first time last week while visiting Stratford. The service was friendly and not over bearing (was nice to enjoy breakfast and not feel rushed out). We sampled the eggs beny, cheese & asparagus omelette and local honey garlic sausage. Breakfast was served with crisped to (my) perfection homefries. Everything was tasty and the portions... More

I am not regular but if I lived in Stratford I would be. This eatery has the right amount of small city dependability mixed in with Home style cooking. Add a little sarcasm and it a wonderful experience.
