Order the fish and chips. Simply delicious!!! Wait staff very friendly and happy to assist with travel directions. The owner, Madelyn, is a treat to talk to and has a delightful sense of humor!

“Excellent fish, yummy tarts!”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

We went to Madelyn's by default/poor planning. We were reluctant to go in as it lacked....curb appeal shall we say. Our hungry bellies got the better of us despite the place looking very dated and a tad grimy. I decided to play it safe and ask what was popular. "The fish n chips n butter tarts". Sold! Fish portion was generous and cooked perfectly. Coleslaw was just how i like it, a bit tart and not sweet (like KFC). Fries were good but nothing special. Full as a tic but split a tart and glad I did. Took 4 to go including one with bacon. My son text me twice after he ate it to tell me how amazing it was. Rice pudding was a bust. Take cash. Use bathroom before you arrive. Sanitize hands afterward. Yes I'd go back! Overall rating is based only on food.

“Decent diner with great tarts”
Reviewed 17 June 2013

Madelyns is an old fashioned well worn diner where you can get a fair sandwich at a fair price and a terrific tart.

“Excellent Food!”
Reviewed 5 June 2013

Madelyn's Diner serves a most excellent breakfast. Generous portions, low prices. Eggs perfectly cooked the way you request it. Bring cash, when I was there, they did not have a credit card machine. The restaurant was easy to find and had good parking.

“Excellent breakfast!”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

We had a super breakfast yesterday enjoying a delicious western omelet and eggs benedict. The lady that served us (Brenda) was very friendly and cheerful and our breakfast arrived in short order - hot and fresh.
