In the middle of a busy life, la Madeleine is a little piece of France you can call your own. Guests are encouraged to choose the la Madeleine experience that suits them. Sit and sip quietly by the fireplace or choose the patio and take place in what we consider one of the highest forms of French culture: the art of conversation. At la Madeleine, we aim to share joie de vivre, or joy of life. True to French tradition, we believe this joy can be found in the simple moments, like sharing good food and good conversation with people we love. That's why we use real, wholesome ingredients paired with classic French techniques. We do it all for the joie of our guests in mind.
