I stopped in while editing for my train. Had a gingerbread got chocolate and a cinnamon bun. Service was very friendly but a little slow, but it was pouring rain and I had an hour to kill. Food was good.

My friend and I visited with our children for coffee and a late morning bite to eat. My friend has the sweet crepe and hot chocolate and she said both were good. I had the pumpkin waffles and they were incredible! My only suggestion would be to cut the mousse on the waffles in half. There's a ton! The staff... More

For a few years now, my wife would rave about this small eatery and bakery; she and colleagues eating there any time there crazy schedules permitted. I finally joined them and see what the fuss was all about. Crepes, sandwiches, salads all bursting with flavor and the freshest of ingredients. Don't forget the pastries; they are worthy of the French... More

Stopped here with my mom for lunch, and loved it! I had the prosciutto sandwich with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, red onions, and pesto. My mom had the Niçoise salad. We both loved it. Mine came with a yummy potato salad. Mom had enough to take home. The pastries looked like works of art, but we didn't indulge. Will definitely go... More

We stopped in this cafe mid-morning for a pastry and coffee and I must say the pastries were so good that we had two each and the coffee was always fresh and good not too strong. Atmosphere is for visiting with friends or talking with your spouse or date while the service realizes this and doesn't rush you at all.... More

Great bakery. We got there late in the day, so our choices were limited. The oatmeal cookies were great.

We have frequented Madelines many times for breakfest and lunch. They make their own pastries which are amazing. They have many unique specials which I recommend.

Petite Madeline's is a classic patisserie but also has awesome savory food. My daughter had a breakfast with potatoes on the bottom, salmon, fried egg, asparagus and local organic greens. It was super delicious!

Tried the pastries at Petite Madeline, they were scrumptious. Light and flaky, very fresh and wonderful flavors. Tried an almond croissant, a glazed cinnamon twist and a pecan twist. All were delightful, but each was $3.50- $4.00 apiece, not cheap, but very very good!

We were looking for a great place to celebrate my wife's birthday. We found it! Could be the best breakfast we have ever had! We each tried something different and they were all amazing! We bought a couple pastries to go and they were incredible too!
