Lots of options on the menu for everyone. Not a coffee drinker but my family said it was good coffee. We were able to get a booth pretty quick for a busy Sunday morning. Service from the female waitress was really bad. I don't know...More

It's a diner with bench seating and a few tables. Greasy spoon type place with good portions and the coffee kept coming. The servers are friendly and attentive. It's definitely a place that locals like. There might be a wait for your food if it's...More

I really enjoy going there. The food is really good and prepared right there for you. People are awesome: super friendly, cordial, approachable. This is the perfect typical cozy local cafe a good friend will take you when in Madison. Sometimes the wait can be...More

Willalby's is one of the places I go practically every time I'm in Madison. It has the feel of a homey small diner and delicious breakfast staples. My two favorites (and thus my go-to breakfast combo) are the hashbrowns (best I've ever had, to be...More

Stopped in on a Sunday around 11AM. We sat at the counter, and our kids at a table. The place was full. After putting our orders in we waited 45 minutes before our food came out. Decent food, but not worth the wait.

This is NOT your run of the mill diner. I wish I could explain Willy St and its charm, but it's best just to visit Willalby's and you will understand. I had the vegan biscuits and gravy and I almost cried. It's one of those...More
