La Madeleine Bakery Café


These pictures were taken at La Madeleine Bakery & Café a French bakery franchise in Texas and other states in the USA. It all started in 1976 when Louis le Duff opened Brioche Dorée in Brest, a city in Brittany in northwestern France.

Then in 1983, the first la Madeleine location opened in the heart of Dallas, Texas on Mockingbird lane across from Southern Methodist University.  

Today there are now over 80 la Madeleine locations, each with their own individual French charm.

Hello World! Bonjour !


Flashback April 29, 2011 – Hello World!  Bonjour Tout le Monde! Today I am officially a “blogger” or une “blogueuse”  Today is a BIG day!  C‘est un grand  jour ! for many reasons, after many, many months of pondering what the heck I would be writing about in a blog, it dawned on me that it’s is a wonderful vehicle for a bilingual blog to celebrate and share bits & pieces of  the French culture in & around Los Angeles as a French native transplanted in the USA since 1974! ( I’ll write in English and /or in French ) 

So, here goes, French A L.A Carte!  or (www.frenchalacarteblog.com) a blog with a French twist. people, places, events, ideas, trends, music, art, traditions, food for thought,  simply à L.A Carte!

Fast forward  September 13, 2019 – Oui, oui ! The blog is still here! Today I have traveled from Los Angeles, California to Dallas, Texas. I’ve really enjoyed meeting interesting people, discovering new places and promoting events in my hometown Los Angeles.

French A L.A Carte Blog will feature French Culture & Lifestyle and FrenchBrands in the USA. (I took a hiatus from posting for a while) and I am revisiting this blog as I still very much enjoy sharing bits and pieces of my French Culture and lifestyle or as we say Art de Vivre and it helps me to cultivate more Joie de Vivre in my own life. (even though and especially that I am also officially French-American after so many years.)

I look forward to discovering French Culture in Dallas, Texas and hope you’ll enjoy your visit! A Bientôt!
