Sunday Breakfast

We were visiting from out of town and staying at the Hyatt. We decided to try La Madeleine, because the continental breakfast at the Hotel seemed pricey. We ended up spending more than $40 for 2 adults and one child for breakfast. We missed the menus upon entering, and most of our food came from... read more

Met some friends here, 7 of us altogether. Interesting variety of dishes, food was decent, not great. Parking is terrible. About 8 parking spaces, everyone else looking for street parking. And the restroom.... I walked in, and it smelled like day old piss. Come on, at least hose it down twice a day. Bad ending to a decent meal.

Second visit here both times for breakfast I ordered a bowl of fresh fruit & a chocolate almond croissant, I got both off the self serve line & had I stopped first at the bakery counter where the calories are listed I would have put back the pastry (610 calories oo la la!) but it was very good, my companion...

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!
