Alexis went with the ham, egg, and cheese sandwich.
I chose plain old egg and cheese. My egg ended up being cooked slightly over-easy, which is what I like. I'm sure you'd be able to request that your egg be cooked harder if you like.
This is their specialty. It translates to 'butter bread', and comes from Brittany. I've read that only 6 bakeries in the U.S. make this, and one just happens to be here in Salt Lake! This pastry is so popular, that Madeleines limits you to only 6 without a 72-hour pre-order. I can definitely see why! Kouing-Aman has a crunchy, caramelized crust that breaks open to reveal a soft, gooey, buttery, sweet, and flaky inside. I wish I could have gotten a picture of the inside, but I gobbled it up. It truly is heaven!
I've never had a french macaron before, so I got this Raspberry Button. It was ok, a little to much raspberry for me though.
We also tried this Butter Toffee Shortbread. Yum.
Black & White cookie. Very soft, I like the chocolate/vanilla icing.
Canellé. This has a dark, caramelized crust, and a very tender center. I thought this was pretty good, very interesting.
Alexis chose this cookie, which I can't remember the name of. It was really yummy.
I highly suggest stopping by Madeleines for breakfast or lunch. Do NOT leave there without first grabbing a Kouing-Aman, or two... or three.... :)
