We recently had a girl's night get together at the La Madeline on South Cooper Street in Arlington. It had been a while since I'd eaten here, and I had almost forgotten how fabulous it was.
My light dinner last evening was a Quiche Lorraine, cup of fabulous French Onion Soup and some of their fabulous coffee.
The quiche was light and satisfying. And so fresh! I know that sometimes things sit around for a while, but this one was right out of the oven.
Their French Onion soup was fabulous as always, with a large croûton and some shredded Swiss cheese.
And the coffee - I can't say enough about it! Their house blend is better than Starbucks! Rich, smooth and satisfying, coffee with half and half doesn't get much better than this.
My bill was about $9.00 for this light supper. But if you add in all the free bread and butter I ate and the eleven cups of coffee, I think it's pretty fair.
OK, so I didn't really have 11 cups of coffee, but I COULD have!
The place was not too crowded for a weeknight, and you can sit and talk a La Mads for hours (which we did). This is also a great place to pick up a quality dessert or a loaf of bread too. I plan to bring the hubby here for breakfast on Sunday!
