Great lunch menu. We had the tuna gyros and Rueben sandwich and both were delicious. Nice assortment of home-made pies as well. Indulged in the coconut cream pie which was not too sweet and not covered by too much whipped cream. Perfect dessert. Clean space and efficient service.

Stopped by to meet with family for lunch and wasn't disappointed! Can't wait to return and try their extensive pie selection which all looked delicious. I tried the chicken dumpling soup and the pumpkin French toast-some of the best French toast I have ever had! Service was great, and my husband is a big fan of the banana milkshake. Prices... More

My sister and I both live in Madison and we have been to Hubbard numerous times. It has always been great food with generous portions. So generous that if I order the special of the day (Fri - Sun) I add a salad and take half it home for another meal. The Turkey dinner, Meatloaf or the Pot Roast is... More

Family of four - two salads (nothing to write home about), burger, and the Sheldon - a tofu Reuben. Fries were lukewarm and chewy - plain old Sysco food. Salads were dressed up bagged greens. Burger was good, so there's that. Service was good, ambiance was so-so. Pies and cakes were great. I'd say, go for dessert and skip the... More

I had the reuben and it was awesome! He had the mushroom Swiss burger and it was really good too. But the pie! Huge slice of lemon meringue we shared... It was phenomenal! The service was great and the atmosphere was very welcoming. The bakery we didn't try looked amazing too.

The Hubbard Avenue diner is a very quaint retro diner in Middleton Wisconsin. While visiting Madison, I went there for breakfast and enjoyed the omelet special. I particularly appreciate the carafe of coffee left on the table so I always had a hot cup. They are known for their pies & they all looked scrumptious but it was a little... More

My husband and I were in the area last week and had lunch here. Attentive service, delicious food and cute atmosphere made this a great choice. I had the macaroni and cheese, yum! My husband had the catfish sandwich which he loved. Of course we finished off with a great piece of chocolate pie. Wish we lived closer!

I found the Hubbard Avenue Diner & Bakery via a search for the best pies in the Madison area. I was calling only a few days before Thanksgiving and other bakeries were no longer taking orders. I have to say that the Apple Pie that I purchased at Hubbard was by far the best apple pie I have ever had.... More

Well it is worth the wait! We had great food at fair prices! Service is quick and efficient, we had a great egg omelettes. It was the pies though that got our attention. We ended up taking away some apple and french silk pies to share with friends. If you do have to wait, give the hostess your name and... More
