“Enticing aromas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

This was our first visit even though I have lived here most of my life. I came with my granddaughter and we enjoyed everything about La Madeleine beginning with the enticing aroma of herbs, the ambiance of a country French home with warming fireplaces, to the wonderful food we ate. This is definitely a restaurant we will visit ofter. No room for dessert but purchased from the bakery to take home for later. I definitely want to try the wonderful soups next time.

“Easy, tasty French food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

Cafeteria-style service and reasonable prices makes it easy to enjoy French food as tasty as one might have in a more formal, stuffy and expensive restaurant.

“One of my favorite stops in the DC Metro area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

Anytime I'm in a city where this restaurant is, I have to make a stop because I have never been disappointed with the food and bakery! The flavorful quiche was creamy and crispy crusted as always, and the soups are hearty and tasty as well. If you're looking for a quiet place though, this isn't it because having the cafeteria-style service and open seating around is a bit noisy.I bought a few pastries for the road--almond croissant, fruit tart, and Napoleon since I don't have a place like this at home and they didn't disappoint! Make sure you try one of their signature lemony Madeleine cookies (if you're a fan of lemon, that is) during your visit!

“Decadent and Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

Travellers along the Rockville Pike must make Le Madeline a stop in their travels!

The bakery serves up sumptuous treats -- you're sure to find something in their case(s) to delight your taste-buds.

Along with the decadent pastries, you can get your choice of coffee(s) and tea(s) ... along with other beverages. Perfect to compliment your pastry of choice.

Service is always exellent and you are sure to find a little nook to curl up in and enjoy your findings in private.

“I love this place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

Cafeteria style, great roast chiocken, coffee, small bakery counter. Nice for a small quick meeting they never bother you and there's plenty of parking.
