We had a very nice early dinner with friends. Tawny was our waitress and was excellent. She gave us plenty of time to order, checked on us frequently and was very friendly. My Reuben sandwich was the best one I have ever had. Pastrami was so tender and the cheese extra gooey! It was so nice being able to eat inside again!

We had breakfast on Sunday morning (04/18/21) and the restaurant was real busy. We had reservations so were seated within a few minutes. We sat in a booth in the bar area and our waiter had several tables plus serving those who were seated at the bar. He did a great job given how busy he was. All our food was good. Definitely worth eating here.

I recommend you just stop by for dessert, which is what they’re known for. There were a handful of folks waiting in the bakery line, and rightfully so. The chocolate cream pie was amazing and so light and airy. Our entrees, however, were the worst Monte Cristo’s we’ve ever had (extremely eggy and dripping oil).

No special menu for Easter holiday. Our server was so obviously fake nice. She needs a lesson on how to be sincere. A little less fakeness and a lot more sincere is definitely better. Also, unable to get folrt mignon on a holiday until 4pm. We have had several very bad experiences since covid. One more try and if it isnt great, no more Madonna Inn.

I am local and have been coming to Madonna Inn for 50 years. I have watched the food decline over the the years. My Eggs Benedict had fried eggs instead of poached. For the price they charge it should have been perfect! One of the most disappointing visits we had and we brought friends since it was Easter, so I didn’t want to complain!

Sandwich price unexpectedly high.
Salad was good
Men’s bathroom right side sink put out high water flow and splashed all over the vanity top... and me.
We will return but probably try the steak house

Had the Monte Cristo with excellent preserves and the Chef's salad which was full of meat and veggies. Also tried the famous Pink Cloud drinks (both alcoholic and virgin) and enjoyed the pink sugar crystals on top. Wonderful way to have a nice dinner with my daughter for her 17yo daughter for her birthday.

The service at the Copper Cafe has always been terrible, but we'd hoped that with recent staffing changes that the waitstaff would finally get it together. It was over 20 minutes before we knew who our waitress was. We had to flag down a busboy for coffee, then flag down another busboy for sugar. It was clear that the waiters and waitresses don't work together, and when we asked other waitstaff for help in identifying who was the waiter/waitress for our table, we were literally ignored and given dirty looks. A hotel such as the Madonna Inn should not be satisfied with rude and incompetent waitstaff serving their guests. It makes the next door Dennys and IHOP much more appealing.

Our waitress was very short with us. Did not bring all of ordered food. When we asked for things it her a long time to bring. The prices we high for foods. She did not even bother to warm up pie so it was cold berry pie at $9 a slice. Madonna inn is still impressive but when you go expect to pay a minimum of $30 per person to eat at a cafe.

This quaint location was a great surprise on our day trip. The ambiance, staff, and food were excellent. Make sure you don't leave without trying their oatmeal raisin cookies! They reminded me of the homemade cookies my grandmother used to make.

We will definitely be back to try their Steak House.

Our brunch at the Madonna Inn on Sunday, March 21 was pleasant. We made reservations and did not have any wait time when we arrived. The booth we requested was available for us, 3. The food, coffee, service, apricot pie, was very good. I love taking my Mom for a special meal at the Copper Cafe, Madonna Inn.
