REVIEWS OF la Madeleine French Bakery & Cafe Little Rock IN Arkansas

Jowy Sowy

Decent food. Seems microwaved or otherwise pre-prepared. Nice selection and won't break the bank. Greetings in French was cool.


This place is amazing. I accidentally stubbled in to here after many other restaurants were busy, and I'm so glad. I ordered the cinnamon french toast, and it was the best french toast I've ever had. All the members of my family loved what they got, just as much as I did. The staff members were extremely friendly, and the scenery was beautiful. It looked just like a French home, only Disney World had decor this good, and this was a lot cheaper. Jokes aside, the only downside is that the parking lot is hard to get into, but the amazing food, scenery, and staff out weigh it. If you're visiting Little Rock, this is a must see.

John Lemmerman

It sounds all French and fancy but it's just a typical cookie-cutter franchise cafe that serves pretty westernized versions of "French" food. Decor is kinda like what would happen if McAllister's and Panera Bread had a baby and raised it in Colonial Williamsburg. Also the bathrooms will attempt to teach you French, which definitely isn't the worst thing you might hear in a bathroom.

Shane Montgomery

Beautiful resturant with amazing food!

Kaitlyn Sheehan

The food here was delicious, well worth what we paid for it. They had a fireplace and plenty of seating, and the manager was extremely personable. He gave us a few suggestions, and was patient through our indecision, and we settled on the Turkey cranberry sandwich. I typically don't like Turkey, but I was pleasantly surprised by the mix of flavors and I would order again. We're definitely making this a regular spot.

Jesse Ball

Good coffee

Mary Barre

Went to brunch today. Chose a table by the windows, not realizing it also put the chair I was seated in directly in front of the door to the patio, making it necessary for me to actually move/get up several times when someone went out to patio. I pointed this out to the manager as we were preparing to leave. His reply? Corporate tells them where to put tables and now I know not to sit there.

Susan Williams

Great food. Charming decor. I have been back 4 times now and plan to return.

Andrew Cassinelli

Nice folks, quiet comfortable atmosphere, good food, varied menu. Cost about right.

Amy C

We stopped here on our way back to Texas from Indiana. We had the croissant French toast and it was excellent! The staff was very friendly and attentive. The restaurant was clean and has a nice atmosphere. I was very happy to learn there is one of these close to where I live as well. I will definitely return!

Mark DuSharm

Very pleasant experience. Food was delicious. Staff was very attentive.

Mark Plath

I really enjoy the chicken salad sandwich on a croissant! The bow tie pasta salad is great as well!

Sherri Buller

Good food. One of the few "girlie" places around, which is nice.

Anna Johnson

I'm so glad this place is here it feels like you're dining in Europe enjoying some nice fresh bread with wonderful salads I love this place my family loves his place it's a must try and Little Rock

Mary Jo Worley

Love the food. Staff is very helpful!

Quentin Hollon

Amazing place for little rock, the lemon tarte is the beat we have ever had! Salads are great too!! Sit next to the fire place and grab a cappuccino on the way out!

Morris Hill

When i tell you this was some good eating. Oh my this was GOOD

Tonya Book

This is my regular spot for soup, salads, and amazing desserts. Everyone there is super nice, especially two of the managers, Jacob and Alissa. They always make me feel welcome and they go above and beyond to make sure my order is exact. One of the best places for high quality desserts. Every visit is always five stars.

Sue F. Lopez

One of my favorite places to eat.

Channy Medina

Best pastrys I've ever tried ,the coffee ulala,the servers are very nice and the vibe is good,if you want to learn a few words in French go to the restroom

Devin Sain

I really like Madeleine French bakery because breakfast and meals are a lot different than other places. My least favorite thing is the expense for a restaurant that you order at a counter and not waited upon. But when I'm looking for something different than IHOP and Cracker Barrel I think Madeleine's French bakery is the place to go. I will say though their coffee is 3 times better than both IHOP and Cracker Barrel.

Saxboi Games

Different. Very different. Upscale, yet, casual. The food is good.

Samantha Brown

I'm disappointed every time I come here......after giving them another chance today with a French dip mushroom soup and one of each mini tart The French dip is the most bland thing I've ever put in my mouth and the mushroom soup has the viscosity of gravy with some grittyness and like pulverized mushrooms The tarts were fine ......not great not good ......fine

Mallory Matthews

The French onion soup is delicious! The service could be better but overall my experiences at this restaurant have been good.

Ryan Hui

Great food. Comfortable atmosphere. Friendly staff.

Eric Thompson

I inhaled my food so quickly, it tasted so damn good, I didn't want to stop eating it. I also polished off my girl friends plate too because it was that good. The French toast was to die for.

Theresa Key

Another great meal at La Madeleine. After a busy and tiring work week, then a long and busy day shopping, this was the perfect choice for dinner. Greeted with a very cheery Bon Jour, by multiple employees, when we walked in the front door. The restaurant was spotlessly clean and welcoming. When I was ordering, the staff was smiling and friendly, and very patient with answering questions about some of the meal choices. Food came quickly and it was hot and delicious. After our meal, we went to the dessert/pastry counter and received the same excellent service.

Robbie-Bear Eisenrohr

Took a 78 year old Former Marine into your Plano store and he was refused a glass of wine because he had no ID on him. I realize that an ID is important , but the manager didn't have enough courtesy to make an exception for a man that was clearly over 21....... or was it a bias against a military veteran?

Shayna Bonnet

It was a must for my gf when she woke up from surgery. Must be great. Lol. I didnt try it.

Kevin Elmore

I had the pleasure of having lunch at this new Little Rock gem the other day! This is a wonderful addition to Little Rock! The atmosphere is great! They have an excellent friendly staff and the service was phenomenal! I had the strawberry and bacon spinach salad that was amazing! I can't wait to come back and would definitely recommend this place to all! Definitely worth the drive from Atkins!

Shanda Henry

Really good food. Nice staff.

Salem Basave

I love the raspberry-chocolat torte, breakfast,lunch or dinner


They've discontinued some of their most popular items recently which is very unfortunate. The food is classical French with some minor modern updates but on the whole it's fairly basic French cuisine. If not for the stellar atmosphere I'm not sure I'd come back because several dishes are so... basic.

Mark Frerichs

Food, service and customer interaction was great!

Ken H

This place has one of the best brunches and lunches in the Little Rock area. My to go order looked just like the pictures on the menu. Impressive. Most places decrease portions when you order to go, but not here. And it's reasonably priced. I recommend anytime of the day.

S Jack

Love the food and atmosphere; it's just so COLD every time I dine in.

Sean Antonio

I love this place!! A touch of France!!

Katie Holloway

Fantastic food, and wonderful staff!! Never disappointed.

Rosemary Stewart

The services was great. Food was good lived the atmosphere. Will go back. Church event and very pleased.

Memory Road Music

Very elegant place

Cerise Johnson

Absolutely superb! This was my first visit and it won't be the last. I had the Chicken Crepe Riviera and my taste buds have not stopped tap dancing yet. My best friend, sis-in-law, and I complimented each other's dishes throughout our entire lunch.

Tom W.

Stopped in for the first time today. Not bad. Breakfast was pretty good. The croissant was really warm and fluffy. Went well with the blackberry jam they serve for free. Coffee was good. Service was pleasent. Building was clean. Worth a try if you already haven't been.

Lillie Hill

Love everything that I've had. The crusants are great.

Feliciana Garcia

Service, food, drinks, and venue were ALL exceptional! I can't wait to come back into town and have their Pasta La Madeleine again!

Ms jeff

Dining chairs and tables are old. The pastries taste like refrigerator. The quiches tasted hours old. They never have bread available.

Joshua Norton

I really love the food at this place. There are several coffee options dessert options and Americanized French country cuisine. I think it's great but my French friends tell me it's not the most authentic. Either way it's some really good cooking. I've been many times and usually get the chicken Cordon Bleu. I also like to try a different dessert every time. Check it out!

Nathan King

Great atmosphere. You get greeted upon entering in French. Food is fantastic with a complimentary bread bar. Try the Parisian Eggs Benedict. It is on point.

mable williams

Madeleine French bakery was amazing would go back

Nathan Wilson

Really nice upscale restaurant! Romantic fireplace and free tasty bread. You order at the counter and get your drinks, silverware, free bread, and napkins by yourself. Choose your own seat and a short while later someone from the kitchen will bring the food out to you.

Areeba Abid

Nice staff, good coffee. 4 stars because wifi was spotty

Bobby Bradford

Very pleasant atmosphere. Food was good and had lots of flavor.

Tanya Silva

Delicious food, great service and affordable prices. Plenty of room so you don't feel crowdy, you better get early because it gets full at lunch.

Tanvir Sattar

One of my favorite restaurant in town. Affordable, great atmosphere and awesome food.

Catherine Hicks

I placed an order for a dozen creme brulees for my birthday on Sunday. When I arrived to pick up my order this morning (Tuesday), the employee on the phone had keyed it in as parfaits. When they tried to correct this, they DOUBLED the price I was quoted and made no attempt to remedy the situation. There went my birthday party. Thanks for nothing.

Rick Toth

Good tasting food, bread is always fresh and delicious!

cathi green

This is a FABULOUS eatery ❣ Delicious Food and wonderful atmosphere, great service, and supper with my BFF, whom I hadn't seen in 43 years❣ HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!♥

HR Hayden

I love this place. They have the best quiche around & their customer service is excellent. I highly recommend going here for a light lunch or an early supper. The interior is cozy with a huge open fireplace & it has plenty of room in between the tables. If even just for coffee or tea you should stop in to check out their pastries!!! The best caramel Creme Boulett I've ever had. If you're a caramel lover then you must check out their sweets.

K4RM4 09

Beef crepe had classic signs of being heated up in the microwave. Steam coming off food, beef dry and cold in places, parts of sauce also cold. Sent it back, came back hotter but still cold in places. Went ahead and ate it because I don't like complaining. Would have probably been a good plate of food had it been made fresh. Disappointed with my first experience.

Curtiss Miller

Very welcoming and calm atmosphere. Fast service and very friendly staff.

Christy Leavins

WOW! That is all I can say! My husband took me on a lunch date here and it was AMAZING! The staff was great the food was excellent and the environment was nice. No loud music we could actually hear each other talk. I will return!

Sean Harris

The experience was so awesome....I was blessed with a new girlfriend fiance!!!

A Marshall

Very plesant staff. Extremely slow with receiving our order. Not necessarily worth the price, for the lengthy wait time. (Many uncleaned tables, very few dining in customers. Some waited for take-out orders longer than 45mins).

Ner S

Presentation is good. Food is mediocre and received cold. Good atmosphere and lively. But I would suggest to order out than eat in.

New Yorker2

Good food

Marisol Kilgore

Cute interior and decent food.

Arthur Murphy

Chicken parisien and potato soup are always excellent. Restaurant stays fairly cold, and on most recent trip, seasonal menu items were out of stock, so they substituted ingredients without asking/telling us. Would still go back, though, and order from the tried & true menu.

Paul Thompson

Good food. Cozy. Wish they had more selections and table service.

Rosemary Jesse

They were understaffed and while we got great food/service, there was a table full that had several issues. The staff was great and made sure they made everything right. The quiche is always good and the croque monsuier was fabulous! Great family place.

Jamie Burton

One of our favs

Bubba Allen

Never ate here myself but my fiancè loves the food. So I come here and get her breakfast. She says it is one of her top 10 places to eat. I'm gonna have to bring her for supper one night so I can see what she loves about it.

Dallas Harmon

Excellent food and a very nice, rustic atmosphere. The staff are warm and friendly, and the pastry selection is out of this world. Not too expensive, but not the cheapest fare in town, for sure. They seated our group of 9 at the busiest time of Saturday brunch.

Sam Edwards

Always great!

Kris McNeil

Best bakery items in the area.

Sarah Grulke

Great breakfast. Serves is great. Atmosphere is perfect. Fast, clean and great location.

Larry Dicus

Definitely a fancy place that's worth checking out. Haven't eaten food at the location yet, but I got takeout that I reheated a couple hours later (busy day). Never have I had reheated food that tasted so delicious. Will come again.

Natalia Villavicencio

Best chocolate cake

Timothy Hawe

I enjoyed this experience. Food was really good , place had a real nice atmosphere , and the staff was wonderful.

ramya spaulding

We are visiting from CA and my brother took us here. Amazing breakfast and very friendly staff. Awesome start for the day.

Liz P

First time visit for my husband and I and we really liked it. The food was fresh, hot and good! Service and staff were excellent!! I would highly recommend breakfast, next we'll try lunch.

Hussam Saleem

Super friendly staff, feels like an actual french place. Loved it

J B Cross

We have enjoyed dining here several times in the last few months. The staff including the manager are exceedingly friendly. Ordering is done at the counter and the food is brought to your table. Bread and drinks are serve yourself. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable.

J.D. Abram

First time here. Everything about this place was awesome. The staff was friendly, greeting and professional. Our food was great and the environment was nice and clean. We will be back.

Jesse Hathcote

They never let me down!


Great service, amazing food, wonderful atmosphere! My new favorite place to eat.

Andrew Adamson

Good food friendly staff and breakfast all day

Rebekah De Crane

The food is excellant. The atmosphere is very inviting, and the staff is friendly and attentive.

Drena Dream

I enjoy going. It has a nice atmosphere.

Joshua Carlisle

Nice staff. Pretty tasty food. I had the Parisian Eggs (totally recommend) with my eggs over easy. This place is kinda designed and laid out like Panera Bread. All in all, I would come back again.

Charles Landrum

Great staff and Great food

Peter Stuckey

Good food and a really nice atmosphere. My wife said it reminded her of the French pavilion at Epcot. The food is good but the prices were a tad high. We will go again, but it probably wont be a regular place for us.

Nadia Quraini

Beautiful cozy place. Great coffee and great service

Kelly Cress

The service staff was unenthusiastic but the middle school cafeteria atmosphere more than compensated. The menu was pretty limited and uninspired. Predictably the food was mediocre.

Gary Maskell

Excellent food and service! We will return in the future.

Bradley MoDean Stogsdill

Great food. Nobody can match this place. Everything on menu is excellent. Good atmosphere, pleasant place to eat. It is not a cheap place to eat but your meal is always most excellent.

M McNail

Amazing! One of my favorites, hands down!

Jack Lane

This was a quick suprise were just in the area and stopped by their food was great and their pastries were good as well. They were a little pricey but the food quality supported the cost

Jacklyn Cox

Not easy for handicapped to carry everything to their table and the help just watched you struggling

Larocque Palkon

Great breakfasts. Fresh pastries are the best, we always get a to-go order for later.

T Nolan

Quiche Lorraine is lovely. Quiche Florentine could use more veg or more cheese or more spice it was not my favorite. All the people were efficient and friendly. Complementary bread and jam was a nice surprise treat!

Joe Hurdle

Great food, really neat place to take the kids. I love their breakfast!

Stephanie Habenicht

I have been anxiously awaiting the opening and this place does not disappoint! If you gave up because of the long line you missed out because it was worth the wait! So far I've tried it for breakfast, lunch and dinner and have loved it each time. Some of my favorites so far are the Cream of Mushroom Soup, The Parisian Eggs Benedict, Chocolate Almond Croissant and the not-to-be-missed Coconut Macaroons!

Charmaine Allen

My husband and I found this little Cafe after Church, when nothing alas was open. Best kept secret in LR! He had the French Dip Sandwich and I had quiche Loraine. Both meals were fabulous. The service was fast and friendly and the place was extremely clean. It was packed but that did not slow down the service, our food came rather quickly. Great place for any time of day!!!!


Absolutely awesome place. They have really quality stuff to eat. They have a great backyard. Very helpful staff and very kindly.

Kara Selby

This place has some of the best food, the employees are always awesome, and I just love it!

Y Green

Cute, cozy restaurant. Great service and food. Definitely worth the trip. Best cup of coffee...ever!

Gil Cupples

Great place for brunch

Miguel A. Alvarez

Clear, bright, clean, and spacious. I love the menu, tried at other locations. I ordered takeout, so maybe I'll post a review later. Service was quick and with a smile

Michael Smith

Tasty food and desserts. All the bread you can eat.


Went for lunch. Enjoyed the "cozy" home atmosphere and helpful staff. Food was quick to the table and delicious! Great French Onion soup and sandwiches. The pesto pasta salad was a great side dish to my "Croque Monsieur" sandwich, piled with lots of juicy sliced ham and cheesy goodness. Great complimentary breads and spreads while you wait for your food (which won't be long at all)! Excited to be trying dinner there tonight! Overall, great atmosphere (big patio will be perfect in the fall/spring), helpful staff, delicious food, short waits for food, and easy on the wallet!

Cory Platt

The service and food quality is always superb here. So glad we finally have a lamad in LR!

Theresa Bour

Great food and nice staff

Lisette Reyes

Wow, this place is terrible. The eclair literally tastes nowhere near as good as a grocery store eclair that comes in a clamshell pack of 6 on sale for $1.49. And the mini lemon tart tasted like a gross refrigerator. We had the napoleon, the eclair, and lemon tart. All too sweet.

Empress Bey

Staff very friendly & knowledgeable. The egg white omelette was okay, must season yourself. Atmosphere was peaceful, we went for breakfast bout 730A.M. Had Mimosas which was very delicious champagne choice. First time will come again.

Amanda G

Fast friendly service with great food.

Fre Hickman

First of all, I only gave it 3 stars because there were three leaks in the dining area when we went. The food selection was spot on for light French cuisine. The quiche filling was light as air but wasn't seasoned adequately. The croissiant french toast is AMAZING. My husband ordered his per the menu, but I had my daughter's served with the fruit on the side... there's a lot of fruit. I also had a mimosa. The orange juice has a hefty amount of pulp (which I don't like). The hot chocolate, though pretty, doesn't taste very good. I would go back just to try the crepes.

Fred Greenwood

Breakfast and service was very good.

Glenn Prentice

Picked up coconut cake to go. Best coconut cake I've ever eaten. Fattening but soooo good.

Adam Johnson

Amazing place. Some of the friendliest staff I have had at a restaurant. The food is very good. They stick to French rustic cuisine and do it amazingly well. Dessert options are numerous and every one of them delicious. Also the French dark roast coffee is some of the best I have ever had.

Tony Wilkins

Great food great service at a terrific price!

Tony Fuentes

Nice french feel. Excellent fresh food. Friendly warm service. Reasonable prices and generous portions.


Always love the amazing tarts. They have lovely salads and the staff is very helpful.

Amanda Saliba

This place is Heaven on Earth!!!!!!! The people, the food, and the atmosphere is unmatched! Every time that I am in LR, I make sure to pick up a Croque M. <3

Shardell Torrence

First time eating here and the food and mimosas were amazing!!

Clara Ault

My husband and I LOVE this place! We come here all the time for a Chicken Parisien and a Cappuccino. I'm half French and they do whatever possible to keep the atmosphere, recipes, and service as authentic as possible. Great prices, lovely people, mouthwatering and healthy menu options are just some of the things you'll get at this restaurant and it's an automatic go-to for us when we have the means to eat out.


The food here was wonderful! They were very busy, but the staff was doing their best to move things quickly. Everyone was very friendly and apologetic about the wait, but I understand completely. It was totally worth the wait! I will definitely come back again once things settle down. People just kept jamming into the restaurant!

Lori Launius

Well to tell the truth I didn't want to have our LifeShare Group Meeting at Le Madeleine tonight. But, I changed my mind completely when I got there. They have completed changed and updated the menu. The service was good and the employees helpful. The ambiance is still impressive and now the food matches. We had a really good time tonight and I will be back.

Future Lurker

It’s like a nicer version of Jason’s Deli.

Carol Oberste

Nothing great but not bad either. Won't be going again anytime soon.

Elvis Nduku

The service was great and the food was no different from when I was in Paris.

Mahir Zeynalov

Who can debate the divineness of the French breakfast, anyway? It's beauty takes on another level in this cafe. The place looks as authentic as it could be. Croissant was perhaps the best I've ever had. We had a great breakfast and I am so glad that we stopped by here. The servers and the staff are very friendly and the place is a sleek, clean place. Lots of small and big tables and two very big tables for extended families. Parking is not a problem. Check it out.

New Deep

I first visited La Madeline in Texas about 8 years ago and I loved the place. I was so excited to know that they built a La Madeline here in Little Rock. I still have the same great experience. Great food, great atmosphere and I love the coffee. I highly recommend La Madeline

Zoe Lewinsky

I visited for breakfast today. Service sucked! After waiting over 34 minutes for, my Mocha. I asked the General Manager when will I get my drink. He said oh sorry, let us make it. 15 minutes past still no drink. At this point. I’m upset. The manager say oh sorry, I thought you had it by now. He did refund me. He me made feel, as I bother him. When in fact! I paid for and item they never made. They’re are always unorganized, slow, and the food really haven’t been good, my last couple of visits.

Alicia Garza Winstead

The food was delicious, the service great. Great atmosphere, we'll be back.

Partne Daugherty

I would give this place a 5 except for the size if the Take-out Lemon creme cake being about 1/2 the size that I was served during the same Dine-In visit. To be exact, ALL of the take out desserts were smaller than the Dine-In desserts and the desserts in display.

Deana Olson

Love the fresh made food. Just the right size. Yummy pasteries

Michael Frantz

Really good food and service. Best coffee in town

Marilyn Hale

We ate the chicken salad on croissant with potato soup. Yummy.


Food, atmosphere, and staff are all amazing

natalie Forster

I got the cinnamon croissant french toast. It was burnt and cold when it for out to me, but later I tried a cake with a name I can't pronounce and that was really good, so it made the experience less bad. Won't be going here often or for breakfast.

Dennis Weaver

The food presentation was great and its taste matched its looks. The employees were friendly and competent. I would eat here again.

Mel Morgan

Purchased some dessert treats (lemon tarts and fruit tarts) for the office. Everyone loved them!

Sheila Finn

Friendly Staff. Food was good! Parking could be a challenge...

Ervin Vaught

If you’ve ever been to France and you’re hoping to revive a memory just watch Casablanca instead. I had the country French breakfast and the bacon was like jerky. The potato gallate was the consistency of a soggy cow pie. The coffee is good and the eggs were good although they don’t comprehend poached. Julia Child would be horrified!

David Laser


Jenny Mattox

I wanted to thank you,for such a wonderful lunch! My good friend took me.It was my first time and just loved it! God bless you all!!

Jeremy Hardison

Delicious food for the price. Stick with traditional French plates and sandwiches. Desserts are fantastic too

Bruce Siebert

Reliable, and great food and service.

Chuck Davis

I'm not sure what the hype is over this place but the food is only mediocre but the tomato bisque soup was good. Everyone at my table felt the same way.
