This location is now closed. There are a few others in the area but this one has closed for the redevelopment of the shopping center.

For me, it's not the best place to eat French food but they have some good desserts. It is a self-service, so prices are reasonable.

So I used to love this place, but it's lost some luster over the years. The menu is very big so even the most complicated pallet's can find something. Plenty of tables and parking so it's not inconvenient. They ring you up fairly quickly and make the food available to you as you work your way down the line. My... More

Its always nice to eat here. The atmosphere is casual and the food is good. Their pasta and soups are extraordinary but the sandwiches (I felt) were tiny and overpriced. The to-go line is always very long. All of their desserts though, were absolutely amazing.

Always the best bakery goods here. However the dining room is dingy and always far from spotless. It seems that they could use one or more staff member to clean the dining area.

This place is casual yet serving good food. Reasonable price and cozy setting, perfect for casual dinning or an occasional get together, even a rendezvous with a date for coffee is very acceptable. Truly a A+

We had brunch at La Madeleine. The service is buffet but the food is quite tasty. The selection is interesting. There is outside seating but the restaurant is in a congested area and the immediate surroundings are a parking lot so the ambiance outside is not too terrific. But all in all, I would go again.

La Madeleine specializes in country-French-style food and decor. It tends to be crowded and noisy on weekends and at lunchtime, so if you want to converse or get fast service, go at an off-hour or take an early lunch. But the food is tasty; I had the croque-monsieur and tomato basil soup and enjoyed them.
