I’ve been admiring Madeleine (a French-influenced patisserie/boulangerie/restaurant in Adliya) from a distance for a while and today I decided to step inside. I was directed upstairs for lunch and chose a seat by the window – perfect for watching people wander the streets of Adliya below. If you want to go for coffee and cake, you can choose to sit downstairs instead. The decor is lovely – floral and light – just the way I like it. It’s a little more expensive than some of the other cafes I’ve posted about, but not by much. I had the creamy pesto pasta and a cappuccino – both were really tasty. I wasn’t hungry enough for anything sweet today, so I’ll just have to go back soon for more!
