Reviews: J. Paul's and La Madeleine Bakery Cafe

Initial thoughts:

  • Design and Decor:  Cafe setting...nothing special.
  • Wait:  None.
  • Food:  The French Onion Soup was below average.
  • Drinks:  Good lattes and cappuccinos
  • Price:  Low
  • Service:  No service
  • Would I go back?  No
For some reason, I thought I heard good things about this place so I took my friend there.  It was a bit embarrassing.  The soup was pretty awful.  All the cheese was at the bottom, rather than properly melted over the top.  Good coffees, but I wouldn't go back.

Fun place to watch a game.  Good crowd and nice atmosphere.  I liked the cheesy crab dip.   Keep it in mind the next time you're in Georgetown.
