Good standard French bistrot food. The croque messieur is excellent, the tomato soup very nice. There's always French bread (white and cereals) available to go with you meal.
I don't like the salad dressing much, so I always get my Spinash salad without dressing.
Be aware that it is not the cheapest place to have a quick bite.

They used to be a very good place to eat cheap semi-French food. Last time I went to the store, the woman working at bakery counter use "bare" hands to transfer the cakes from the baking container to the display frig. That tells me something was not right in that place.

Not everything is for everyone. My personal tastes were not suited for La Madeline. They charge a premium price for bland, boring food. I have had better French food at a high school fundraiser.

I can get insulted by a waiter anywhere in Houston. I shouldn't have to pay for the privilege in a pretentious little "bakery". Seriously.

Great selection and when paired with the restuarant a great place. Of course you aren't in Paris, but then . . French selection of delights never fails, It is good for moi.
