La Madeleine is the best when it comes to breakfast or lunch. They make everything fresh right on location. Lots of things to choose from. Their soups and salads and sandwiches are excellent. Two of my favorite things to eat there are the tomato bisque, which is extremely popular, and the quiche. Excellent! It's a great place to eat and... More

Although they have changed their style (not really for the better), it's still an institution here. Get the french toast or the strawberries romanov - you won't be disappointed!

I really love this place and I go as much as I can for quick lunches or breakfast or just for a snack during shopping. I love their salads, especially their wild field with chicken or their cesar's, but , their sandiwiches are also very good, like their soups or simply their pastries. I recommend it for quick good meals... More

We go to the Forest-Preston store and have a light dinner. I especially like the half sandwich with soup with pasta side very good. The onion soup is great but the tomato soup is famous. They also serve breakfast all day which is great.

I have been here twice in the last month and both times I received excellent service. The hot sandwiches are very good, the turkey bistro is delicious, the bread it came on is so good. I love their pasta salad on the side too. They also have great tomato basil soup!

It was nice to seat outside with some classical music humming in the background! I tried the Chicken Penne Pasta for the first time. I give it a three out of 5. The chicken portions in the pasta was reasonable. Enjoyed eating outside. Will do it again!

I love the breakfast. The wild field salad is what I recommend. Complimentary bread butter and jelly is always good. Tomato basil soup is also what I recommend. It's weird that the fireplace attracts everyone even in the scorching heat.

Used to be great before they went corporate and lost their feel. Still a good breakfast place, but if you are interested in reasonably priced French cuisine, go with a place like Normandie Alliance over a place like La Madeleine.
