My friends and I often stop by for a quick bite and coffee. It's nice because there's usually a good selection of small desserts so you can get a taste without breaking the calorie bank! There are also nice fresh entree selections. If it's a rare chilly wet night you can also sit by the fire.

There are certain places me and my friends like to visit together and one of them is La Madeleine. The food is simple but always fresh and consistent in taste. Generally I order a combination of french onion soup and Chicken Parisian but this time I had the tomato and basil soup with a pizza which was also a very... More

I came here on a whim while waiting for my movie to start (it's located next to Alamo Drafthouse). I got a chocolate croissant, a mini fruit tart, a mini creme brulee, and a box of macarons (for mi padre). I ate the mini creme brulee (the size of a silver dollar) and couldn't eat anything else. It was so... More

A fine rest stop for a lite meal and a tasty treat for dessert. La Madeleine's specializes in homemade soups and lunch fare with a hint of French flair. A nice follow-up is their bakery, featuring crafted artisan breads, cakes, cookies, and parfaits. I've had the pleasure to visit both their Austin and Cedar Park locations, so take a friend... More

Used to eat here often. loved the salads, the French onion soup, the breads and desserts are fantastic. Last couple of times we ate here, the soup was so salty it was inedible, and the sandwiches were overdone. Too expensive to be so mediocre.

Not too many choices on the menu to confuse you and no pretentious wait staff. It is set up buffet style, with someone to take your order at the front of the line, trays to slide as you ogle over the bakery treats (cheesecake to go so you can enjoy it later!). Glasses, utensils located near the check-out area with... More

I can be a creature of habit. If I go to La M, I am. I always order the Chicken Pesto Pasta, always. I love the way it looks. They sprinkle it with chopped tomatoes and a little basil and it's just pretty. Their bread and butter also cannot be beat. I am usually too full of pasta to get... More
