Good food, but service could be better

Great French style specialized entrees that includes individual quiches served in cafeteria style. That said, dishes remained on tables for over a half hour after patrons had left. That just should not happen.

La Madeline is always enjoyable, especially for breakfast. In addition to their other offerings, we found their potato hashbrown patty particularly tasty. The restaurant is warm, cozy, and relaxing.

We just happened upon this restaurant while spending the afternoon exploring in old town Alexandria. There are many options on the menu to select from. The serving size was just right and the prices were very reasonable. We were too full to try any of the dessert options. Glad we stopped here.

This is where you want to go for breakfast in this close in the suburb to New Orleans. We liked it enough the first time to make a second visit in our short three day stay. Eggs Benedict, country breakfast, oatmeal, French toast, and great coffee would all be on our list to try again. There is much more to... More

This is definitely a great place to go if you're looking for something quick and easy. It is a little confusing as to how you order and where you should be standing when you arrive. But the food is good, and it is very affordable. I took a mini dessert to go. The Wi-Fi and the outdoor seating are a... More

The restaurant is, essentially, a cafeteria with a French twist, so there is not much in the way of ambiance or service. Ate breakfast here with a friend. My friend had an omelet and I had my favorite - eggs Benedict. We both thought the food was very good. However, the line to place orders was long and moved very... More

Had a good dinner here with the family. It was rather confusing at first as it looks like it is cafeteria style but they also have table service. You can choose from what is on display or order from the menu. I had one of the signature dishes Chicken la Madeleine which was wonderful, my husband had Beef Bourguignon which... More
