Would be better if they would open earlier

Once they finally opened up the service was good and breakfast was enjoyable. The number of breakfast options in this part of Spokane are limited and it's too bad Madeleine's doesn't open for breakfast before 8.

The pastries are super yummy. I had the apple pecan french toast, it was to die for. Really cute place. Will definitely go back to try lunch next time.

We had been to the old Madeleine's location and were excited to return. When we found the new location we expected it to be just as amazing. However, what we found was thoroughly disappointing. The new location lost the atmosphere and vibe that made the old location so great. Now it is in a "trendy/industrial" type shop that just doesn't... More

Full house for Saturday breakfast with staff cheerful. lots of opportunity to observe kitchen through interior windows with everyone moving quickly, but obviously taking great care with the food. Our breakfasts were fantastic and locals of all ages gathering for conversation and great food.

We have frequented Madeleine's since it opened in it's original location. Always enjoyed it. The service system was always slow and confusing but worth the wait. We went to the new location a couple of days ago and were so disappointed. The food in the cooler was so sad looking. Not the abundance of beautiful platters of food that I'm... More

My husband and I came here on our fifth anniversary. We ordered: --drip coffee --pumpkin donut --classic breakfast (him) --croque madam (me) It was all delicious! My breakfast was a perfect mash of bread, bechemel, cheese and ham. His was classic with maple sausage. The staff forgot his toast so we had to go ask for it. The pumpkin donut... More

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
