New renovations look nice, tarts are amazing but basic breakfast food has been too salty on three attempts to have breakfast there

Average food. Average Service. Nothing special. I'll try somewhere else next time I'm in town. I went there because of the excellent reviews, but I don't agree with them. I tried the raved-about butter tarts, wasn't impressed.

We went here because it seems to be where the locals go. There were families and couples of all ages and it seemed very homey with excellent food and good prices. I had the asparagus and Swiss omelette which was great however I did not expect hollandaise sauce on it which I wasn't all about. People seem to rave about... More

Four of us had breakfast there this morning. Funky little retro diner!! Big portions and great prices. This is not a chain restaurant, nothing fancy but great food and staff. A must when in Stratford.

Found myself in Stratford looking for some lunch. The locals told me this was the place to go and I am glad they did. It is nothing fancy but the food was excellent with large portions and the price was quite reasonable. PS, definitely save room for their award winning butter tarts (I can certainly see why they are "Award... More

We love visiting Madelyn's whenever we have tickets for the theatre. The food is greasy, the atmosphere is laid back, and we love it. A nice change in cuisine after all those fancy meals we had downtown.

This was my second time visiting this restaurant. My first was at lunch, which I found to be just ok. Myself and 3 daughters went to a play and forgot to make reservations for dinner. The only place we could find without a wait time was Madelyn's. I guess there is a reason for that! We started by having no... More

Experience the indigestion of a greasy meal and come out smelling like cooking oil. This local eatery has a loyal following but it's not for the faint of heart or refined of palate. It's for those who want deep fried, high-fat, grub. If that's for you, enjoy. Chipped crockery, grimy diner tables, retro decor.
