A New Spot in Solana Beach, CA
I love the Cedros Design District. It is a compact shopping area that is especially good for home decor. I particularly enjoy Solo and David Allan. Happily, there are more restaurants on the area now. We stopped at Madeleine Cafe for a quick lunch. It has a nice French-inspired menu and patio seating along the sidewalk.
My friend had avocado toast and I had a tartine Provencal. Mine was delicious with artichokes, red peppers and goat cheese on toast. We had iced jasmine tea and iced black tea. It was a perfect shopping break meal! We split a lemon pastry and were very pleased. In addition to croissants and desserts, there are some groceries for sale. I bought a tube of chestnut puree to put on some home-made cookies.
The Cafe has a nice breakfast menu with crepes, omelettes and more. It would be perfect for brunch or a bite after a run on the beach.
