La Madeleine French Bakery & Café Opens First New Mexico Location
Everybody likes free stuff, right?
Well, on Tuesday, Aug. 29, you’ll have a chance to win free bread for a year. Well, at least 52 loaves of free bread.
That’s if you’re one of the first 100 people to show up at the grand opening of La Madeleine Bakery & Cafe, which is opening its first location in Albuquerque at 6:30 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 29. The bakery is located at 2110 Louisiana Blvd. NE.
Here’s the company’s news release with the details for the event:
La Madeleine, the French bakery-café beloved by guests for more than 30 years for its authentic traditions and approachable cuisine, opens its first New Mexico location on Louisiana Blvd. in Albuquerque on Tuesday, Aug. 29.
Grand opening celebrations begin at 6:30 a.m. on the 29th, when la Madeleine will break bread with the Albuquerque community. The first 100 guests in line will be welcomed in true French style with complimentary coffee and the ultimate treat, free bread for a year.
Operated by franchise owner Alejandra De La Vega Foster of Franklin Mountain Bistro, the bakery-café will offer French favorites for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Anchoring the la Madeleine menu are the brand’s most cherished recipes — Tomato Basil Soupe, Caesar Salade and Strawberries Romanoff, but new guests will find it easy to explore the menu balanced with lighter recipes and more indulgent French classics. And of course, a trip to la Madeleine isn’t complete without a treat from the bakery, like a beautiful Fresh Fruit Tart or a simple All-Butter Croissant.
“With the opening of New Mexico’s first la Madeleine, we are sharing our love of French food and hospitality with an entirely new community, and we hope to become a favorite spot for our neighbors to enjoy fantastic food with friends and family in a relaxed atmosphere,” said De La Vega Foster.
“At la Madeleine, we bring love into everything we do, from our recipes prepared in-house each day, to our home away from home ambiance to the ‘joie de servir’ mentality of our managers and associates (our pleasure in serving guests),” said John Cahill, president of la Madeleine. “Opening our first la Madeleine in New Mexico is a big, exciting step, and we look forward to becoming a part of the Albuquerque community.”
The 4,918-square-foot café features a 500-square-foot patio and is open daily from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. The new café brings approximately 65 jobs to Albuquerque. For a complete menu and other information about la Madeleine, please visit lamadeleine.com.
“ABQ Uptown’s array of quality shops and restaurants is a hub of economic activity for the city, and a destination for locals and visitors alike. The arrival of la Madeleine not only adds to the diverse offerings of an area poised for further growth but also provides new job opportunities for our residents. We are very pleased that this restaurant will immediately create 65-70 positions in our food services sector,” said Gary Oppedahl, director for the City of Albuquerque Economic Development Department.
