Nice Eatery

La Madeleine's is reliably good. There is a nice variety of main courses and good desserts. Very good for breakfast and lunch.

The breakfast was very good. We went there the night before for dessert that really hit the spot and decided to go there for breakfast the next morning. We were not disappointed.

Just 3 blocks from the Residence Inn in Bethesda, this cafe was very convenient. Food was quick to arrive and nicely presented. Sandwiches were good, salad was pretty good but not amazing. Chips on the side were possibly a little stale. I would definitely eat here again.

Only a block away from the Hyatt Regency in Bethesda MD. The food was good. Service was quick and easy. Reasonably priced.

We went here for coffee and desert after eating at a restaurant nearby. I tried a couple of their pastries, a creme brulee and a fuit tart. Both were very good. My colleagues had an eclair and a couple other pastries, as well as coffee. They were happy with both.

I was staying at the Hyatt Regency and looking for somewhere to get breakfast when I discovered La Madeleine. I walked in to see what they had and was welcomed with the smell of fresh bakery. The pastries were buttery and flavorful. I ended up eating breakfast there each morning that I was in town. If I ever stay in... More

We eaten at the Crown Farm Le Madeline a few times and will continue to return. Wonderful ambience, warm fire, terrific staff, and best of all menu & delicious food. Stop in, if you need dessert. You'll wow your hosts and/or guests. Bon appetite!

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.
