It's been years since I'd been to La Madeleine. The food is everything good that I remembered. There was a little problem with a sandwich taking longer than expected, but they made up for it. I'll be back.

I have been eating at La Madeleine of Columbia Crossings for over two decades, and this place has always been my favorite. It is very famous in our neighborhood for an all you can drink coffee, free bread, free margarine and free jam and free honey [cheap mind ;-)]. The place is very generous! Where can you find a place... More

Go for the coconut cake and their soups. There are lots of freshly baked cakes, pastries and breads on display for you to choose. You order and pay immediately at the counter. If you have ordered food to be cooked,they will serve it to you

Went for breakfast. My wife and daughter accompanied me. We were very pleased. Service was good. Enjoyed the food. We had croissant sandwiches with fruit and I had a very good yogurt. It was pricey, however I would not hesitate to eat there again if I wanted to impress those with me. Atmosphere was warm and friendly.

When you walk into La Madeleine, you can pick up a menu near the door, but I prefer to walk along the self-service bar with my tray to pick out whatever suits my mood. They have great salads and soups, and lots of French quiches and other main-dish pastries. If your food needs to be cooked, they'll bring it to... More

La Madeleine is one of my favorite causal restaurants . Great food nice atmosphere and good Deserts . But this location is a little below par . The French Onion was lacking taste . The sandwich just poorly made .

I've been here in the past and had delicious salads and enjoyed the lovely, warm fire in the fireplace (in the cold weather.) But, I went with my husband and friends recently and was disappointed with my Mediterranean Salad. The greens were soggy and limp, and the salad dressing had no flavor at all. The staff was friendly and helpful,... More

I've been coming here on and off for a few years. During that time, the staff has always been friendly. Depending on the time and day, it is better or worse for wear. Therefore, I always try to pick the less busy times to visit, like after work or early dinner time, to avoid the crowds. This last time I... More

Good polite staff and great food. Indoor and Outdoor dining is available. Warm Atmosphere especially in the winter time when the fireplace is going. Some foods I enjoy are Croque Monsieur sandwich, Chicken Caesar Salad, Tomato Basil Soup. I want to try more things from the menu.

What happened to this once bustling, little French-themed cafeteria/bakery? I returned for a visit after a 2 year hiatus only to be disappointed by the run-down appearance of the interior and furniture, the sloppy open kitchen, and barely full salad features. I ordered a French dip sandwich expecting rare roast beef on a crusty roll and bullion/consume, but instead it... More
