Zen.... Ommm ...

Japanese haiku master Matsuo Bashō knew how to eat & drink. Here's a set of haikus he wrote more than 300 years ago: A man that eats his meal amidst morning glories— that’s what I am! On a blue sea, waves fragrant with rice wine: tonight’s moon A hangover: but while the cherries bloom, what of it?

About Petite Madeline

Our baking practices

Everything is made here in small batches and in the artisan style. This means our baked goods are made from scratch using unadulterated ingredients. We respect the process of baking, thereby bringing out the best flavors only time allows. This is especially true with breads and croissants, where it can take up to three days — the time dough needs to develop its distinctive character.

Our savory menu

We cook by the season. Like our baking methods, our lunch and weekend breakfast offerings are made from scratch.

Our customers

Many of our customers have become friends. We know them by name… and most of the time we know what they want ahead of time. This is the place where friends meet friends. A tasty pastry, coffee, or delicious lunch in hand, makes for a more pleasing rendezvous.


Airy and bright, modern yet preserves historical elements of the building. Ambient background music perfect for conversations, reading, or laptop work — we have WiFi.
