Been a favorite of ours over the years ever since our children were students at SMU almost 30 years ago. Entered one Sunday morning back then when classical music was playing in a wood framed French bistro type cafe while professors & students alike were reading the Sunday paper & eating great croissants with steaming cups of fresh coffee.

This place is really going to the dogs. Ordered a ham sandwich. After 30 minutes started asking about it. Staff was utterly confused. Got refund and left. This place has been declining for a while but this is the nail in the coffin. Makes my "never again" list.

I have been going to this restaurant chain for over 20 years, and it has consistently been one of my favorite places to eat.

This is one of my favorite Cafe in Dallas. It is a pretty busy place but the service is always great. I love the classic Caesar salad, the dressing is perfect, not too creamy, with just the right amount of cheese in it, yummy yummy! Quiche and coffee are also some of my staple from this place.

This is the original La Madeleine location. Seating is limited by some other locations. Love the food as did my teenagers. Service was friendly and quick but the house level was excruciating loud! Impossible to talk or hear. For that reason I am only giving 3 stars..but the food is worth 4 stars. Very close to SMU and the Bush... More

Madeleine's is a great spot for lunch. Tomato soup is fantastic. Sandwiches and deserts are also great. We usually pick up a few deserts to take home.

Food quality is not what it used to be. Quality has gone down a lot from the time La Madeline opened.
