What a great experience - amazing food, personal service and lovely views - we really enjoyed our lunch. Since then I've popped in several times for coffee and croissant/muffin/other decadent delight! Yummy!

My husband and I visited this lovely bakery cum restaurant for Saturday morning breakfast, but have also been there closer to lunch time. We had their eggs Benedict served to order — his was soft and mine medium, served on a beautiful potato Rosti. There was the correct amount of Holland aids sauce to add depth to the dish without overwhelming the eggs or rosti. The food was served on “hot plates” which showed that the chef truly understood how “eggs” can quickly become so/so on a “off the shelf cold plate”. Reading the features for the lunch menu, we debated if we should simply walk around for 3 hours, and come back again. Such clever minds — the Madeleine Chefs — they must truly enjoy food & delighting their guests.

We were a bit confused about seating at first and had to ask for the table to be cleaned but Madeleine's made up for it with excellent food - just look at the pictures 😃. We will definitely be back again.

I visited Madeleines for breakfast and it was simply delicious and a lovely experience! My boyfriend’s Mom regularly buys cakes for special occasions from the bakery, and every time they have been wonderful, so beautifully put together and so tasty! This place is definitely a gem I would recommend.

A small hands on bakery/cafe with a relaxed and comfortable vibe. They encourage to take a quick walk through their shop before sitting down so that you get a feel of what’s on offer by seeing everything rather than simply looking at a menu, which you can of course do if you prefer. As I was sauntering through and had already spotted my absolute favourite ‘marinated artichokes’ for a very reasonable R45 per tub, I happened to glance across to the baked goods, fresh out of the overn, already on display. It was the pear and almond tartlet that grabbed my fancy and I am so glad I went against my better judgement that tarts and cakes are to be eaten after 9am and not at 8:30, and ordered this little treasure. That’s exactly what it was. So fresh, crispy outer tart casing with a moist and soft almond cake Centre with deliciously and perfectly glazed fresh pear and flaked almonds sprinkled on top. It totally exceeded my expectation, hence my now having ordered some to take away in order to enjoy with my family later tonight. Their cappuccino, great flavor perfect drinking temperature. Delish!! Well done Madeleines. A definite thumbs up from a very happy ‘renown to be too fussy’ patron. I’m a little sad I am moving to the UK now and just hope I find some equally good treasures over there.

Stopped over for a cuppa and spent more time deciding what should accompany to simple tea and coffee, than what it did to consume of final choice. All the fare looks good, and is seemingly all very fresh. Some of the choices we thought were way overpriced and so these were passed by, However we were not disappointed by the finality of decision that ended up on our plates. Instead of a hot coffee, a coffee milkshake was decided upon and my spouse had a cuppa tea. The cakes were rich and superb. Service was effecient. Certainly worth another visit .... when we have time on our hands - choices, choices, choices !

Stunning coffee shop, excellent service. The owner always around and checking that everything is good with personal touch. Love the idea of the open baking kitchen area. The very best carrot cake ever! But very good and delicious choice on cakes. Love the freshly made and good selection. Excellent coffee!

This is the best quaint coffee shop and pattiserie. One struggles to decide which of the offerings to order. The veranda seating area is refreshingly decorated and tranquil. Seeing regular faces just shows why we all keep going back.

I allays enjoying going to Madeleines for lunch or indeed to get some cakes and goodies. Everything is freshly made with a vast choice. My favorite is the salted caramel cheesecake but everything is very nice.

Madeleines is my favourite coffee shop on the Upper Highway of Hillcrest. All their food is excellent. I have had delicious breakfast as well as tasty lunches there. My favourite is to go for coffee. The choice of the most delicious cakes are on offer. My favourite is the caramel nut cheesecake but I also really enjoy the carrot cake as well. The best anywhere. Excellent coffee too. They also have meals in the freezer and plenty of goodies to buy to take home to eat.
