Madeleine Cafe & Bakery


Half of croque monsieur

This classy French cafe is the best lunch spot in Solana Beach without a doubt and a short walk to the beach ! My wife and I have been here many times for lunch and breakfast. Emmanuel and Steve the charming French co-owners know how to look after their customers. Today we ordered a couple of Caramel Macchiatos and a Croque Monsieur sandwich to share. Our coffees and the scrumptious looking sandwich were on our table within a very short time. Everything tasted superb as usual !

Being in a prime location on the very popular S Cedros Ave the cafe’s sunny front courtyard is the perfect place to enjoy a very nice lunch while watching the rest of the world walk by. Our lunch tasted excellent as we are accustomed to at this fabulous French cafe. Emmanuel came by and had a chat as he does with all his valued customers. It ticks our boxes for top quality food & beverages, great value and excellent customer service. They serve lovely French wine here too !
