In the Washington D.C. area for a convention, I walked by the La Madeleine French Bakery & Café on King Street several times before stopping in for a late evening meal. It was 9:40 at night and the place was empty but for two tables...More
When visiting Alexandria, we take our grandtwins for breakfast. The lady at the bakery knows the children since they were born and now that they are five, they look for her also. The service and attentiveness is so great and Makelaine has become a tradition...More
