“Consistent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

Always visit when in Houston. The food whether it is breakfast or lunch is consistent. The tomato basil soup and salads are my favourites. Again was not disappointed.
Service was good.
On the downside the internal infrastructure is in need of a face lift.
The shop also provides good product.

“Good Tasty Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

I always enjoy La Madeleine, the food is consistently good. The food is very tasty and large portions. The lines at lunch on Sunday are long. Go around 1:30pm and miss the crowds. The French country breakfast is great.

“Warmed Over”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

We went to the Meyerland store on a weekday for Brunch at 10:00 a.m. I ordered the American Style Breakfast. My eggs were fine but I think they were the only thing that was freshly cooked. My potato Gallet must have been sitting under the warmer since early morning along with my very dark sausage patties. Both sides were dry and tasteless.
The coffee, yogurt and fresh fruit were excellent. The atmosphere and service was also good, as usual.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Not sure why everyone likes this. When I go for a quick bite I am never really impressed.

“Dependabel for breads and soups - nothing else special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012

I love the fresh breads and soups, in particular the tomato and basil bisque. Breakfast pastries are good. La Madelain just seems a bit dated and needs an upgrade on its menu.
