Very good selection of pastries and bread. Salads, soup, sandwiches and quiche good. Nice atmosphere. Good coffee. Did not care for breakfast. Would recommend for lunch and dinner.

No stars if i could. Haven't been in one of these for a while so i thought why not drop in. My friends are always coming here anyway. I walked in and asked what soup they had (i don't know, it's been a long time), and the kid at the register said with the biggest attitude, "the....same.....soup....we have.....everyday." um, wow....

The food is always good at this restaurant. The wait staff is not as helpful or as attentive as I feel they should be. Fro the second time in a year, I had a very poor experience with the take-out counter. The first time, I went to the restaurant and placed a take out order in person. It took nearly... More

My coworkers and I just visited this location, we were 11 people and we never felt uncomfortable on our sitting area. The food was delicious, the only reason I gave 4 stars is because they took too long to get my dish ready so I was the last one on the table to be eating, but because it was sooooo... More

I come to this location to meet a friend for breakfast about twice a month. Food is consistently good and service is usually great. This time the person that helped us was having a bad day, but it's the first time I've seen her unhappy (and she's helped us over 15 times). Everyone has a bad day, but if I... More

Food was good. It is a popular place for lunch so at rush hour expect to be in line a few minutes. I had shrimp crepes and a palmiere for desert that were very good.

I had the shrimp crepe, minus the peppers and it was superb! Very creamy and tasty! The staff was very friendly. One of my friends who met me had ordered a half of chicken to take home but she was told that they had run out! So glad that they didn't run out of shrimp!

We used to live in Houston and frequently visited La Madeleine. So going back for a business trip included a nostalgic visit. Honestly, it is still a great breakfast , lunch or dinner stop. And the middle of the afternoon chocolate craving is handles quite well by the tortes.
