I was looking forward to our family morning breakfast, I’ve visited this location a year ago and was very pleased. This time around it was the complete opposite. The two ladies taking and delivering your order to the table appeared to be annoyed and with...More

No table service. Just a cafe style restaurant. French dip was good but the Chicken puff pastry dish was ok. Soups are good and hearty. Lots of people ordered the Caesar’s salad but we didn’t have it.

It is a standard La Madeleine, which means great bakery and good food. Coffee is a typical american fare, which means burned and weak, but we are not here for coffee, right? This place was not super crowded on Sunday morning, which is another advantage.

This is not a French restaurant and more like a self service cafe, which is also not very French. There are no signs to tell you to seat yourself and there is a sign that says order. I guess that sign and a sign that...More

My wife and I each got the café sampler and we split a bottle of water. The food was very over salted, especially the soup. Within 20 minutes of leaving we both had horrific stomach cramps, essentially ending our shopping day. The service was also...More

Got Chicken la Madeline with broccoli and green beans. Very good flavor, relaxed atmosphere. Fast and friendly service. You walk in pick, the menu, order food at register and seat yourself. Great prices and free refills on sodas.

Alternative is the key word — visitors need to be prepared to grab a menu upon entering and order their food in line before being given a number/letter for your table (seat yourself) so the food can be delivered to the table. Service is good...More

When you walk in, it looks very appealing. Then you have seat yourself. I had to ask how we get food, and was told I place the order with the cashier and it’s delivered to your table. This should have told me what I needed...More

Pleasant location but meal could have been better. Potatoes were warmed over, appeared to have been pre-baked and hardened with warming! Couisant was freshly baked, jam appeared to be freshly made. Wait-staff was helpful and courteous. Worth visiting again to get determine their standards! A...More
