Café Madeleine

This charming patisserie is a svelte slice of Paris in the South End. Executive pastry chef Frederic Robert perfected his macarons, madeleines, and éclairs while working under superstar chef Alain Ducasse for two decades, and now he and his team make them from scratch every day in Café Madeleine’s open kitchen. Bon appétit!
