Ma De's has to be the best value I've ever encountered in a breakfast diner. As others have said, this is where the locals go for breakfast. It's a classic diner offering good food at low prices. Keep your expectations in line with small-town fare...More

Breakfast at Mae De's hasn't changed much over the past 40 years. Always featured on the menu are good, hearty American breakfasts at very reasonable prices. Eggs any way, omelets, bacon/ham/sausages or scrapple with potatoes and toast, muffin or bagel. Fresh brewed coffee, pancakes, etc.,...More

Cheap breakfast in a very local scene. The decor is so out of date that it is now back in style. Everyone likes this place.

Was born and raised here! Ma De's caters to mostly locals. If your a traveler I say skip this place its very local friendly only here and it's breakfast and lunch are ok. It's not bad just not traveler friendly.

This is simply the most authentic diner found anywhere in the east. The service can be fast or slow, but the food is fine, the prices ridiculously low, and the crowd is, well, the same crowd as has been coming for years. Just a great...More

Ma's is Milford's local breakfast joint--lots of character and good food at low, low prices. I've never had anything I didn't like, whether it's eggs, pancakes or one of my favorites, grilled ham and cheese. On weekends John, the owner, makes outrageously delicious waffles with...More
