Mals is a great place if you're interested in diner food. The food is good, but it's not cuisine. Mals is really dirty, so be prepared to sit at a table with a stained tablecloth. Service is ok because the servers are teenagers who really don't know how to serve. It's fine for a basic, no frills meal.

This is a hit or miss location, depending on the time of day, who's cooking and what's ordered. Love the location and interior ambiance. Wait staff is usually very good. Prices are slightly upscale like everything else in Skippack. Breakfast are usually very good. Have had great meatloaf and then again not so great. Fresh cooked veggies are usually good.... More

We had a great breakfast here. Our waiter was real nice and efficient. Food was delicious and just what we were looking for. It seems small from the outside but there is plenty of room inside and it had nice decorations!

Our family of 4 went to Mal's for breakfast on Oct 8th. The waiter was personable fast, friendly and efficient. They are offering many pumpkin choices for breakfast right now. The woman next to me ordered them and said they were fantastic. I had the French toast which was delicious. My son got the waffles and ice cream and it... More

We had a wonderful breakfast. Our waitress pleasant and the perfect level of attentiveness. Food was hot and good. The restaurant is darling. Kinda like the 50's but upscale. Decorated for Fall, our creamers were inside little pumpkins. So cute. Plenty of seating, there is also a dining room in the rear.

Went to Mal's on September 11, 2016. They got the order incorrect. Overcharged us by almost double on credit card and assured us it was "fixed." Called credit card company and it was NOT. Returned to Mal's. Staff argued that we were wrong and the charge was not "finalized" therefore, was not on the credit card. After they spoke to... More

Visited on Labor Day for breakfast. Long wait for our food. Wait staff was less than friendly. Food was not impressive. Will not be returning.

Sat. Morning 10 am visit. Seemed busy but definitely not overwhelmed. Service - terrible our server seemed to busy elsewhere, so another took out order. From that point on, I'm not sure if they knew who was handling our table. Could not get anyone's attention to get a second cup of coffee in an hour. Food - OK - diner... More

Huge portions so go hungry, but, on weekends prepare to wait. Very crowded. Servers seem to get overwhelmed and need more support. But, they have always been friendly and worked hard when I've visited.
