La Madeleine is a good spot to get a relaxing, somewhat expensive breakfast in Old Town. We met some friends here one Sunday morning, primarily because they had a couple of young kids, and they knew the youngsters wouldn't get into too much trouble here. We met my friend near the door, grabbed our trays and started down the cafeteria-like line. After a quick glance at the menu, a hostess took our order on a little computer gizmo, then we continued down the cafeteria line, where we looked over the heat lamps warming the croque monsieurs, croissant sandwiches, and other pre-made dishes. We grabbed a couple of empty coffee cups then stopped at the cash register to pay for our omelet and French country breakfast. Last, we crowded into the corner to get coffee before finding our seats.

My country breakfast was very tasty; it came with scrambled eggs, a nice croissant, fried potatoes, and slices of tomato for about $8. Laura's omelet also looked tasty, and it was also around $7 or $8. After brekafast we relaxed for about an hour with free coffee refills and free toast and jam.

This place is a few dollars more expensive than most other local breakfast spots.
