I think I enjoyed this La Madeleine better than the one in Houston. We felt it was more authentic like here. The pricing was a bit higher, but they so a good job & the end product sits well in your stomach on a busy day. Crepes Romanoff are very nice along with the run of the mill breakfasts. The Maroons & Lemon Madeleines are to die & go to heaven for.

We visited in July and sat inside. You order and pay at the counter. They give you a number and bring the food to your table. (They do not have a Waite Staff.)

We ordered the cinnamon french toast - which came with fresh fruit on top and maple syrup. Very yummy!

Also, the county fresh breakfast with eggs over easy, bacon, potato galette and a fresh croissant. The potato galette was delicious - crunchy on the outside and overall very tasty. The bacon crispy and flavorful, and the croissant tasted very fresh.

We'll definitely be back for breakfast - and are excited about trying more of their food!

We came here for a quick bite to eat before my wife's conference and this looked like a great place -- rustic wooden tables and decor and plenty of baked goods to eat.

I loved the croissants here -- they were extremely flavorful and had a nice crisp texture to them. My sandwich had nicely done egg with bits of sausage inside.

The wife had the oatmeal with pecans and blueberries, something she said she enjoyed.

We will have to return to try their desserts!

The breakfast options were broad which was nice, and the food was tasty. Also in a range of prices. Good for a business meeting or breakfast on vacation. Be warned: very tempting dessert display!

While I am patial to the tomato and mushroom soups here...you cant go wrong any time of day. Superb breakfast choices and terrific salads and pastas all day. Reasonable pricing and a quick in and out when time is short. Dont miss the French pastries and croisants up front.
