Don’t miss this quirky place. Bare walls, light bulb hanging down. Full of millennials. Great eggs, Salads, bowls of deserts, Avocado toast (incredible) Grilled cheeses (with figs and apples) UNBELIEVABLE !

I love the ambience at Cafe Madeline. Not a huge menu (but not a huge restaurant either) but everything I've ever tried here was delicious. Service is great. This is like a well-run family restaurant but with a sophisticated bistro vibe.

Cafe Madeline is a wonderful dining option in downtown Fairfield as it rewards diners looking for something a little different with an array of creative plates prepared with extremely fresh ingredients. I'd describe the ambiance as a sort of bistro-lite with a pleasant al fresco...More

I've now eaten here maybe 6 times and each time was just as good as the ones before. This is not an overwhelming fancy-schmancy joint but while it's noisy enough that you don't have to be self conscious about your conversation it's not that loud...More
