Mickie’s Dairy Bar is an institution. The food quality is the best for a greasy spoon/diner - malts are superb and breakfast food is to die for. In fact, there’s nothing quite as good as the signature “scrambler” - eggs, fried potatoes, melted cheese, and...More

I'm not gonna lie, I'm the opposite of a foodie, so my restaurant reviews should be taken with a grain of salt..... With that being said, I did enjoy this little diner. Old timey atmosphere and plenty of menu choices at good prices and serving...More

Heard about this iconic establishment from a family member, so we had to go today before they closed for the holidays. Crowded and noisy as expected but what fun. Best corned beef hash I have ever had but the rye toast was underwhelming at best....More

Went with friends for breakfast. Atmosphere was definitely old school. I had the basic eggs and toast and my friends had the scrambler and breakfast sandwich. It seemed like an average breakfast. Nothing bad but nothing super special either. The scrambler was enormous and super...More

This is a must stop if you're looking for a breakfast done the old school way....big portions and fresh home cooked food. Note: you will wait for this meal as there's always a long line up the sidewalk. Worth the wait every time.

Wow, like stepping back in time. Really delicious breakfasts at very reasonable prices. Looks like a 50's diner

This is a must visit location for breakfast or lunch when visiting Madison. Food is great, prices are great and service is super duper. You feel transported back to the 1950s when this place was a soda fountain. The scrambler won't leave you hungry.

This is a must do for all Badger fans. Unfortunately it has taken me 56+ years to do so!! There is a line but it didn't take too long to get in. It is loud in the inside but that is some of the appeal....More

Went with my two UW student sons (I'm an Alum)... took them there for breakfast to give them a taste of Badger tradition. Used to go there when I was a student. As expected, the breakfast was awesome! Huge tasty pancakes, nice omelettes, and their...More
