My first and last visit....to this establishment. After placing my order I had to wait over 45 min. For then came cold and not complete... For the price it really sucked. I'll never return or recommend this place.

Had early morning meeting and decided to stop at La Madeleine for breakfast. The display cases with all the treats looked marvelous. I chose to eat from the menu and ordered French toast and dark roast coffee. The French toast was made fresh. The young lady soon delivered this wonderful treat. The presentation of this dish was fabulous. Two slices... More

As usual, the chicken Caesar salad is great and if you ask them to add bacon sprinkles it gets fantastic (not sure if it retains the low-Cal feature). The soups are also great but not very appealing in the current hot spell. Unfortunately, the staff seems to have a lot of turnover and a number of employees indicated that they... More

We ate a late breakfast here and loved everything, especially the flaky croissants! Delicious! I had an omelet that was great and everyone was very pleased with their food. Fast service and reasonable prices. We ate outside and enjoyed it. Would definitely recommend and return again.

La Madeleine is located in the heart of Baton Rouge, yet it possesses the soul of Paris. When you first gaze upon the interior as you enter the doorway, you know you are somewhere special. The counters, the kitchen area and the tables and chairs of the bakery proper are constant reminders of Europe. I had a marvelous Caesar salad... More

I must confess. I've been to a La Madeline before, but it was very long ago. I came for a light lunch before a well overdue massage. This location is in the middle of a very busy Baton Rouge street, but when you come in, a calm comes over you. This is a place to eat and enjoy some lovely... More

Huge salads!!! Consider a half or small and half a sandwich. The Croque Monsieur is wonderful. Save room for a dessert or two and take some home.

I may be slightly biased because I WAS PROPOSED TO HERE! But it's vintage, intimate lighting with soft music! There's an outdoor area that's perfect on a beautiful day. Staff were very friendly and walked as though the entire process. It has a cafeteria/ cafe style which I thought was a cool merge and THE FOOD IS BEYOND!! If you... More
