Excellent, homemade tasting food. Fun atmosphere. Wonderful variety of baked goods. On a Sunday morning expect for there to be a line (one orders at the counter) but the staff is working like crazy to clean tables and the turnover time is fast.

Food is excellent and fairly priced. The service is efficient and the manager comes to each table to ask how is everything. Best coffee and egg dishes for locals and tourists.

Nothing beats a great bakery!
Chocolate eclairs that are beyond Parisian and freshly brewed coffee are such a delight. The attention to details like clean counters, a fully stocked coffee bar and quick personal service are not lost here - La Madeleine is run smoothly and well.
Excellent chocolate chip cookies - worth recommending that you grab a to-go bag of the little ones for later... and a guarantee there won't even be crumbs left. The potato galettes smelled divine!
A great mix of energy and calm as it is a busy place but the ambiance of people taking their time and enjoying the food and company makes it a perfect place to meet a friend, catch up on news and know that you are welcomed to do so as visitors and locals mingle together here.
LOVE.

Wasn't expecting the food to be so great at this bakery, which serves and sells breakfast items, as well as a buffet. The eggs Benedict (called something else) were the best I have ever eaten and the others in my party loved their breakfast as well. You can purchase breads, cookies and other bakery items too. It's a partial self-service, go through the line type place, but they do bring your hot food to you when you order breakfast. A very pleasant atmosphere in lovely downtown Alexandria.

The bakery items were good, but don't order the roasted chicken dinner with rice and broccoli. It tasted like it had been cooked and kept hot for days - really not edible.
