la Madeleine French Bakery & Cafe Restaurant Review

: Since the first taste of France was brought to America in the form of la Madeleine in 1983, these French bakery restaurants become a community magnets wherever they open. The consistently solid menu of French-inspired soups, salads and entrées keep the self-service lines advancing like a Napoleonic march. Salads are dressed and tossed to order, quick picks like croque monsieurs and quiches await in a heated display case, and a blackboard lists the daily specials. New items are introduced regularly, but the consistent favorites are tomato basil soup, Caesar salad and rosemary-roasted chicken. Take home a loaf of brick-oven baked bread or something from the pastry case to perk up your own cooking efforts.
