Good service, specialty coffee took longer than expected. I liked the food. Tomato Basil soup was a little acidic for my taste but once adding some sugar to cut it, the soup was much better. They have a special with half Quiche, soup and salad or pasta for 10.99. Offers fresh bread for free. There's strawberry and blackberry preserves of sorts to pair with it. I didn't get a dessert but they looked lovely.
Still tasty after all these years. La Madeleine in Bethesda is an old favorite... charming and rustic: the inexpensive food is worth the trip any day of the week. Delicious soups and salads and yummy desserts make for a lovely respite... the warmth of the fire completes the ambience. Good value for money in otherwise expensive downtown Bethesda.
The croissants from la Madeleine are some of the nicest I have ever had. The French Breakfast was both wonderful and satisfying. The galette was a pleasant surprise. I was completely satisfied for most of the day. The quiche was not only massive but sublime in flavour and flaky in crust. The cafe americano, similarly, had deep flavour and a well rounded taste, not too brash and yet robust. If you find yourself in Bethesda you simply must make the time to enjoy at least a coffee and croissant from la Madeleine!
This is like a French Panera. I prefer the Gaithersburg location but this location is also good, albeit less clean. The food though, is still good, and I like getting their shrimp pesto (the freshly cooked bread was amazing)
Lovely place, I loved the atmosphere and the staff are friendly. The taste of the pastry is amazing! I also loved the coffee. I recommend trying the croissant.
