Good coffee

I liked the coffee and the desserts that they sell. The new location doesn't have the same warm feeling as their old place. This one is more plain.

I had seen this place a few times while walking around town and I always thought it looked like a cute place so I decided to stop in for lunch. The decor is really nice. I waited in line for what seemed like a long time just to place my order. The items in the counter looked good but if... More

Says it's a "French" restaurant but has no french food and the food they do have is terrible. The people in Spokane must not know what good food is because this food is absolutely terrible.

Napoleon pastry & coffee were very good. Croque Monsieur sandwich was ok but a far cry from the French version, resembled a panini. French fries were good, order enough for two. Cafeteria style restaurant.

It's all self serve. You choose from a menu on the wall. I got a cup of coffee, but no refill because there is no service. When we asked for water, we were told that there is a station in the corner and we needed to get it ourselves. My omelet was passable, but the potatoes were so heavy with... More

My 10 year old daughter and I went here for breakfast and we both left very happy. The coffee was excellent, the croissants were flaky and my daughter loved her breakfast. We will go back.

Went here as our son and daughter in law love this place and this had moved location since our last visit over from the UK last year. Really like the new location and the feel of the place, the staff were really warm and friendly and very helpful. We started off by having breakfast there, I had a lovely bacon,... More

Nice new location for this establishment. Good place to hang and have a pastry which are excellent. The Croque Madame, however, a stand-by in any French bistro, was in the new location as well as the previous, quite dry. With the exception of the egg on top, they are apparently made well in advance and are bereft of béchamel. When... More

Madeleine’s has been my favorite spot for desserts in Spokane for the past few years. Their desserts are always fresh and yummy. I really only eat chocolate desserts. Madeleine’s never disappoints me with their variety of chocolate desserts. This trip we ate breakfast. My husband ordered the Corned Beef Hash; smashed roasted reds, house corned beef, fresh veggies, Sausage gravy... More
