Discovered this place by casualty. The place is a small and cute coffee spot where they also serves breakfast, brunch and sandwiches. I ordered the cinnamon french toasts which by my surprise were crunchy and delicious. They cooked the brioche french toasts with a layer of crunchy flakes and topped with berries. Great flavors and over the top. Certainly will... More

My three year old daughter was not able to eat it. Besides this the salmon Benedict was really really good. Coffee is... More

The croque monsieur sandwiches and variants thereof (e.g. with blue cheese, or with grilled veg instead of ham) were delicious. Service was a little slow, but at... More

If you are in this neighborhood, stopping by for a quick lunch at this restaurant is the best you can do. Sit outside and relax as you order your food. Any pasta is well done in particular the bolognese with a side salad. And if you want a heavier dish, ask for the Croque Madame sandwich. It is good food... More

Visited Madeleine with my wife for a mid morning breakfast.. The place is really nice, it wasnt full. We ordered two latte coffees, which were great. We also ordere french toasts and were amazing. Everything great but the service. While the waiter was friendly the order took too long.. over 45 minutes for the food to arrive, just too much... More
