Great place for Breakfast

I was recently in Houston and went here for breakfast with a friend. I had the croissant breakfast sandwich, and it was delicious. My friend had the quiche Florentine. It's a nice casual place to grab a bite to eat.

We went on Saturday for a late breakfast. We had to order at the counter ( not what we expected) I thought that there would have waiter service and tablecloths. It is More of an upscale fast food joint. Food was ok, however we would probably go back again but only for breakfast.

A good preview of french tastes and plate. It is a quick restaurant but the food is more than correct. I like it a lot and I'm french!

I ate here on my last day in Houston. What a fabulous place. The food is superb. Five of us had lunch here. We sat outside in the shade. It's self service cafeteria-style with an extensive menu and lots of different sized salad portions available. Excellent quiches with crisp pastry and a wonderful selection of cakes. I can heartily recommend... More

For lunch, I got my usual French Dip which is consistent and you can see my previous review on this page which indicates that it's a great choice. My girlfriend loves the French Onion Soup so she got that as the main item but we also wanted to try a couple of other options to fill us up for lunch.... More

I was expecting something different, but wasn't totally dissatisfied? Nothing fancy, simple meals, sandwiches, soups, salads. Nothing impressive about the meal, but the bakery items looked and smelled great and there were many choices. I would have rather had a waiter/ waitress than going to the counter and ordering, like a buffet. Atmosphere was good; service and prices were ok.... More

I had an enjoyable brunch at La Madeleine before leaving Houston. The salad and the Florentine Quiche were great! They also had a great selection of pastries, coffee, salads and soups. The service was casual and fast (you place your order at the counter), plenty of tables, nice ambient and decor.
