La Madeleine Serves Coffee and French Cuisine for Travis Country
La Madeleine on Brodie offers simple French-inspired fare at a reasonable price. The food inspirations originate mostly from the Loire Valley of France and have a simple appeal, much like the lifestyle of its inspirational country. Starting as a pastry chef at the Dallas location, Susan Dederen now serves as the company’s vice president of culinary and develops the menu for the stores.
On the restaurant’s site, Dederen writes that “From Paris to Provence we take the local favorites and introduce them to our guests. We call it French with a wink… taking the best foods of France and using the best ingredients from the U.S. we ensure the freshest products for our guests. Changing our products with the seasons allows us to use these ingredients when they are at their peak.”
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served throughout the day and are available for order online. The restaurant atmosphere has a simple, French Country appeal with the signature large fireplace in the center of each location. Patio seating allows patrons to enjoy their meal or coffee in the great Austin climate.
The most popular items that La Madeleine offers are their bakery items. We recommend trying one of the seasonal fruit tarts, which is currently the Blueberry Creme Tart available for a limited time.
