There isn’t anyone frowning. I glance around and see a big group of women discussing a new novel, a few business people soaking in the natural light at the bar facing Main Avenue, and many couples having brunch—some with kids, some without. You can learn a lot about a business when it takes a break, changes locations, and then reopens. It’s now safe to say: when Madeleine’s moved, those who love Madeleine’s followed. I finish my cup of black drip and the last savory bites on my plate before striking out into the middle of my city, ready for today to be a very good day.

Whether it's for a locally roasted coffee, a made-from-scratch French pastry, or a full-on meal, a stop at Madeleine's will enhance your day downtown. Happiness emanates from the double-barreled La Marzocco setup near the front of the house, the cases of artfully prepared treats and salads, the always-busy grill in the kitchen, and the laughter on the patio out back.
