THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED la Madeleine French Bakery & Cafe Restaurant Review

: When this French-inspired café-bakery hit town, Washingtonians cheered. It offers decent and basic French cooking, warming bowls of soup, fresh-baked breads and pastries, all at bargain prices. Countless people find this combination irresistible for a nourishing breakfast, speedy lunch or cozy dinner. Food is served caféteria-style: be sure to check both the blackboard and the menu before making a final decision. Among the most popular dishes are the tomato basil soup, which has become a signature dish, and the rosemary roasted chicken. Innovations include a bevy of Provençal dishes with hearty country-French flavors. Other locations.
