"Reasonable food and pastries, great ambiance, and not too pricey. I generally stop by when in the area. Overall, a perfect place to grab a coffee and desert! It seems to have somewhat diminished in quality over the years, but still worth going. The pastries are good, but not quite like being in France. Sometimes it is too crowded and the line is frustrating. Sometimes the tables don't get cleared wiped expediently. It would be nice if some of the staff were French, bringing a more authentic feeling. "
"Food is very tasty. But the place is run terribly. They get orders wrong as often as right. Run out of things like coffee sleeves or clean silverware without restocking. Luckily the staff if very nice and polite, which is good because you have to talk to minimum 3 people to place any order. Why do I have to order my drink, side, and sandwhich each from a different person? Beats me.
Also the music is in French, which is pleasant."
"In the Washington D.C. area for a convention, I walked by the La Madeleine French Bakery & Café on King Street several times before stopping in for a late evening meal. It was 9:40 at night and the place was empty but for two tables and myself. At first I thought this was a sit-down style restaurant with full service. It took me a few moments to figure out this was a cafeteria style establishment. Not a negative, but a bit deceptive from the outside looking in.
Genet was my cashier/server and I ordered the French Dip sandwich at $8.99 with an upgrade of French Onion soup for an extra buck. I was handed a wooden spoon with number on it and a cup of lukewarm soup. I found a table and had a seat making sure to stand the spoon up straight so my server could locate me once the sandwich was made.
French onion soup was - like I said - lukewarm and had a greasy taste. Sandwich wasn’t any better. Restaurant was clean, colorful and very appropriately set. Service was matter of fact and courteous. A few moments checking out the bakery made me wonder why I didn’t order desert rather than soup and a sandwich.

"The food was super amazing the 1st time we went! The fryit was fresh, sweet, juicy and dreamy! The omelette was also delicious! The 2nd time, the fruit wasn't as fresh or sweet. But overall, I'd say it's a great place to eat!"
"Cute, corner French eatery! The spinach and cheese quiche has a crust so buttery and mouthwatering and the vanilla latte is my absolute favorite. I recommend a piece of the coconut cream cake to accompany the vanilla latte."
