La Madeleine is a good choice for breakfast or brunch if you are meeting friends or entertaining out of town guests. It isn't a sit down restaurant though, which can become annoying. You have to order your food in a line (make sure you study the menu first) and then there are stations to report to for your coffee orders, soup orders, or anything else that the kitchen wouldn't handle. It's a tray-sliding atmosphere, so by the time you get to the cashier you probably loaded too much on your plate. The service is good and accomodating and the food is decent. I liked my tomato soup but the flatbread wasn't all that impressive. Once you finally sit down your order will be brought to you. All in all, not bad - just too much hassle for breakfast. Especially when you haven't had your coffee yet!
