la Madeleine French Bakery & Cafe Restaurant Review

: As restaurant chains go, la Madeleine is one of the finer and more consistent. Marketed as a traditional French country café, it offers breads, pastries, quiches and desserts. Always a busy breakfast spot, for dining in or grabbing to-go on the way to work, the place offers both eggs and sausage country dishes and a coffee and almond croissant. For lunch or dinner, try the tossed Caesar salad, the best around for the price, or the creamy tomato-basil soup with lots of butter and cream; the puff pastry spinach pochettes; and, for dessert, strawberries Romanoff with brandy-flavored cream sauce. Also noteworthy is rosemary rotisserie chicken. The pseudo-French décor is cheerful though très cliché. Limited wine offerings. Other locations.
