La Madeleine Country French Cafe has been a family favorite for years and years. For every special occasion, the fresh fruit tart has been our go-to for as long as I could remember. I was surprised to recently find that la Madeleine originated in our very own city! In fact, the original bakery sits right off of Mockingbird Lane!
If you've never set foot in a la Madeleine, they serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner cafeteria style. The cafes carry a homey atmosphere, which are made to take after restaurants found in the French countryside.
Growing up, la Madeleine was known for their pastries and sweets, at least in my eyes. It wasn't until later on that I learned that they actually serve delicious French food as well. (I LOVE their french toast for breakfast!) I paid a visit a couple weeks ago and discovered that for a limited time, they're offering the Holiday Cafe Sampler for just $9.99. Choose from one Cafe Classiques, one salad, and one soup! It's really the perfect meal!
If you have family coming into town this holiday season, la Madeleine may be a great place to show them something special to Dallas, while getting a great meal for a great price. Happy Holidays!
