“Always good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

My wife and like to try local eaterys but we also find that La Madeleine can not be beat, whether its breakfast, lunch or dinner very good selection and quality. Of course the fresh bread and pastries to take is a must. You will not go away unstaisfied.

If you want to take a coffee with nice pastries, this is the place.
Not a french bistro, despite the name, but good.

“Not Paris, but what do you expect in Texas?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

This is a perfectly good place if you're missing France, or haven't been, and just need a little taste of Gay Paris. It's not subtle or seasonal the way food really is in the best French bistros, but it's a close enough approximation for Austin I think. The cafeteria serving style and casual dining area are good for families as well as large groups: you get your food very fast and can get more if you run out.

“Great potato soup!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011

I always order a bowl of the potato soup with cheese and bacon bits along with a few pieces of their sour dough bread. It is sooooo good! The take out area is super fast and efficient. The field of greens salad with their own special balsamic vingerette is great too! It is a perfect cozy little French restaurant for a girls relaxing lunch!
