Stopped in for my birthday to grab a dessert. I was not dissapointed. My friends and I got different desserts and everyone was happy. The lemon cream cake was the best I've ever had by far. The creme brulee and cookies were also excellent.

We had a late lunch here after a day of sight seeing. Their items were fresh and delicious as always. My favorites were the Tomato Basil soup and ceasar salad. The service was quick and efficient. I would highly recommend this La Madeleine.

Le Madeleine offers a great affordable family breakfast option in a casual setting. Tasty Potato Cakes!

Nice atmosphere, delisuiou food, crepes with shrimp did it for me. Bakery section is really good if you have a sweet tooth. Coconut cake is the best.

Good atmosphere. It is one of the better La Madeline restaurants. Quick food but good. Great for breakfast (quiche). Coffee always good.

Atmosphere and service are better here than at Kingstown location. Food is the same. I always get a crepe because the Gruyere cream sauce is to die for. Nothing in the pastry cooler called my name.

The food is good here and they try to look authentically French. There is a lot of turnover with staff and sometimes, they do not function very well. Many tourists visit here and "gaze" at the menu. If you are in a rush, do elsewhere.

Had dessert here and wasn’t that impressed. Tried a bunch of different things and were all mediocre. Chocolate tart, chocolate croissant, coconut cake, fruit tart and chocolate chip cookies were all edible, just not superb.
