I ordered the scrambled egg w/croissant. The eggs were very bland but the croissant was fresh. I also ordered the fresh fruit cup and that was good. The coffee placement is weird and somewhat dangerous as you have to reach over the counter and the coffee was very weak.

We love this place. Sundays for breakfast...anything from huge yogurt parfaits to scrambled eggs with delicious potato galettes. Their crepes are delicious for anytime - great evening supper dish if you order them to go. Always good for fresh, tasty soups and salads - the French onion soup is very popular...my favorite is their mushroom soup - thick with mushrooms!
A great selection of pastries - especially nice in the tiny sizes so you can have a sweet treat without feeling too guilty!
Croissants and fresh breads are excellent.
My personal favorite out of all their choices has to be their Croque Monsieur - basically a grilled ham and cheese, but with a super French twist to it...Harrods (the posh store in England) claims to serve one of these sandwiches at a cost of almost $30. I have had both and I can state absolutely that La Madeleine win the competition hands down! In fact, it's better than most I've had in France too.
Breakfast, lunch or dinner, this place is a winner - but it does get busy!!

This dish was truly delicious and I enjoyed every morsel. When I asked how long it would be as it seemed to be taking a while, the guy who was working with the chef was very grumpy and defensive, yet I was being polite! But the other staff were very nice.

Limited space, but worth fighting the crowd for a quick, hot & fresh recharge while shopping the Galleria

This is less of a place for a meal in the evenings, more of a breakfast / lunchtime place, largely self service. The food was good, prices very reasonable. Don't expect a heavy meal, but you can be in and out in 20 minutes
