I've come here for breakfast a few times and it is always really good. I did come for lunch once and had a Caesar salad and it was good too. The atmosphere is not too great. I would come back for breakfast again.

We ate at Madelyn's for the first time last week while visiting Stratford. The service was friendly and not over bearing (was nice to enjoy breakfast and not feel rushed out). We sampled the eggs beny, cheese & asparagus omelette and local honey garlic sausage. Breakfast was served with crisped to (my) perfection homefries. Everything was tasty and the portions... More

I am not regular but if I lived in Stratford I would be. This eatery has the right amount of small city dependability mixed in with Home style cooking. Add a little sarcasm and it a wonderful experience.

We recently had a team breakfast at Madelyn's Diner in Stratford when we had a hockey tournament there. The service was excellent and had the team eating within a very reasonable amount of time followed closely by the parents. The food was all excellent from the eggs to the country sausage to the pancakes and bacon. All of us really... More

We dropped in to Madelyn's diner for brunch a few weeks ago on a Sunday morning with family. We have always enjoyed breakfast and brunch in new locations because it is a good test of how well the place is run. We arrived and only waited a few minutes for a table to open up and be set for us.... More

We tried the breakfast at Madelyn's based on the reviews read on Trip Advisor. While I won't go so far to say that we won't be back, we won't be in a hurry to do so. We sat at the counter which was empty and waited quite some time before anyone approached us. We had to ask for a coffee... More
