La Madeleine is our FAVORITE place, the place where we end up when neither of us can think of a place that we really want to eat. We carry out once or twice a month and eat in about once every six weeks. Tonight we carried out. The first thing we discovered is that they left our my wife's caesar... More

I had breakfast here. Eggs were tasteless and the potato pancake was cold. It's pretty hard to screw-up breakfast, but I've had better breakfast at a fast food restaurant. La Madeleine is typically very good, but you should skip this one for breakfast!

I like La Madeleine. It has some decent things like their Tomato-Basil soup and some of their pastries like Almond-Croissants or Palmier. The atmosphere is supposed to be rustic French and to an extent it gives you a semblance of that (like movies give you a sense of being there). The place can get a bit loud at times but... More

The service is good, the combination of soup and sandwich is a winner, but the best is enter the bathroom and listen to a french lesson, so cute!!!!

Good food - we enjoyed the sampler special - nice sized salad, 1/2 quiche, soup. Comes with the wonderful bread, butter and jam as always. Also enjoyed raspberry lemonade, though we both found it quite sweet. We cut it with some water and that helped. Always enjoy the atmosphere. Would dine there again. We ate a late lunch. I suspect...

Stopped in after we went to the movie, my granddaughter had a friend with her that had been here before, she said she liked this place. I ordered a caesar salad and tomato soup, both were pretty good, One ordered Rotis ck, one had spaghetti with strawberries, All in all we were satisfied with what we ordered.

Extraordinary place with great service, amazing pastries and my favorite the crepe. Very good variety of almost everything, with a nice french touch. Whenever I travel to Houston this is one of my favorite places to start the day and have my double espresso with croissants and crepes. I'll be back!

From soups, salads, sandwiches and entrees this place always satisfies. The meals are so delicious I hardly ever have room for their tempting and beautiful desserts. The coffee and mango ice tea I especially like. The always available bread, butter and jelly is such a delight.

I have been to this place few times. Works very well if you are in rush and grab something fast and good. I like their soup, especially tomato basil and French onion. My favorite here is bacon chicken blew.

Go here about once a month like it that much. Usually order American Breakfast - very good. Their coffee is always excellent - good taste. During cold weather, great to go here due to fireplace they have going. Creates a nice warm setting.
