“Ohhhh. The strawberries and the pastries!!”
Reviewed 9 March 2013

They don't have much in the way of gluten-free pastries but their Strawberries Romanoff are worth the price of admission. For "regular" people, there are lots of menu options that just hit the spot. Top it all off with their delectable pastries. It's not cheap, but for a splurge it hits the spot.

“So disappointed”
Reviewed 1 February 2013

My first visit back to this location after their changes. First disappointment was that you must now order strictly from the menu - no more drooling over the lovely offerings behind glass. That was one of my favorite parts of la Madeleine, seeing the gorgeous salads, pastries, etc. Second disappointment was the state of the coffee bar. What a mess! Looks like it had not been cleaned in a couple of hours and that extended to the floor surrounding that area. Third was that it took 45 minutes to receive our orders (his was the special of the day, Eggs Benedict, and mine was Quiche Florentine). Fourth was that was was delivered instead of my quiche was some type of chicken pastry puff. So, waited another 10 minutes for my quiche. Think I will cross this usually delightful brunch stop off my list.

“Very good for lunch”
Reviewed 20 January 2013 via mobile

This is a wonderful place for lunch if you are not in a hurry. Wonderful breads and an overall pleasant experience. Staff are a little slow and do t seem to move very fast is the only drawback.
