Known for its French cuisine handcrafted daily with seasonally inspired ingredients and its comfortable, welcoming atmosphere, la Madeleine Country French Café is located at Orlando’s Florida Mall.
Patrick Esquerré, self-described “French country boy,” established la Madeleine in 1983 to fulfill his dream of bringing classic French country fare to America. Inspired by his mother’s cooking, Patrick insisted on maintaining the integrity of French cuisine using fresh ingredients and recipes that have been passed from generations.
The distinguished bakery café, which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, features 76 made-from-scratch menu items using classic French techniques, including the brand’s signature Tomato Basil Soupe, Caesar Salade, Country French Breakfast, Croque Monsieur and Chicken la Madeleine.
La Madeleine’s authenticity and innovation differentiate the brand, creating widespread appeal. A treasured part of many communities for more than 30 years, there are currently more than 75 cafés across the country.
