Nice menu selection and everything freshly prepared. The satff is very friendly and there is this neat little country French ambience, particularly when seated near the fireplace. The prices are very reasonable. The only slight drawback is that you have to order at the counter, and in most cases your food will be brought to your table.

Not only is the food amazing, but the enviroment is great/unique. The best part is that you can order your food, and not have to be harassed by a waiter. You can sit, enjoy a delicious meal, and read a book by the fireplace. TIP: Make sure to try their mushroom soup!

I love their menu and their baked goods. As they were taking our order, we were informed that they were not able to make neither hot chocolates nor capuccinos !!! Their brewed coffee was awful, their "French Roast" lack flavor, aroma and had a light brew color. Disappointing

I love to stop here for tea and cookies and sit by the fire place. If you park across the street at the free Reston Garage, then getting in and out (particularily around the holidays) is much easier than exiting their parking lot.

I was happy to find La Madeleine, there used to be one near where I lived and it closed a long time ago--happy to see one while on a trip. The best thing here is the tomato soup--really, really excellent. They have free bread that you can have with it. It makes a nice lunch. I think of it more... More
