I recently stopped here based on my wife's recommendation when I was out in the Reston area by myself. I tried the French onion soup, the Croque Monsieur, and the Strawberries Romanoff. All were very good. This place is an order at the counter (you get some of the meal immediately) and someone brings the entree to you. I was... More

I love this place for breakfast! They offer fresh lemonade, fresh orange juice and great sandwiches for a reasonable price. You can read or enjoy a conversation because the environment is very friendly, tolerable noise.

A shame, typically Le Mad locations are excellent for breakfast or lunch. I recently called in an order and went there to pick it up. They didn't have record of my order so I asked to speak to the manager. Meanwhile... a rat ran from the kitchen doorr by the bakery counter through the dining room. I left... They are... More

I loved this place! First the décor - classy exposed brick, two sided fireplace, eating areas broken up into different size rooms and tables. Very welcoming. The staff were very helpful. We got there at busy lunchtime and they had one person walking down the short line taking orders to speed things up. The menu is very large. Wish I'd... More

La Madeleine is known for its fine food, desserts, salads but for me ts always the great soups you can come in and quickly grab a cup to go. Their potato, tomato basil, and mushroom are great and a bargain. Feel free to take some bread.

We stayed in Reston for a week and La Madeleine was a great breakfast spot for us. Enjoyed the scrambled eggs (made with lots of butter) and the crescents were fantastic! The oatmeal with berries was good but a bit dry.

My hubby and I went here last week end after some shopping. Good is good, but needs much nicer staff. Two ladies were rude as to when I asked where something was. And was Not willing to show me where it was. Needs improvement, and better training!

The food is always good here. There's the option for comfort food, as well as healthier options. I love dining here around the holidays with the seasonal items, as well as gift options. Good experience as always.
