restaurant review Madeleine's
In Search of
MADELEINE'S by Cara Strickland | photos by Rick Singer Photography
ike many in the Spokane area, I have good memories of Madeleine’s in its original location. I spent large portions of our sunny summer days eating luscious fruit tarts and Cornish pasties from the case, sipping tea or tomato basil soup with friends on the patio or near the window. For a time, Madeleine’s disappeared from the downtown area, and Deb Green and her kids (the team also behind Casper Fry), seemed to be focusing their attention on a new restaurant: Durkin’s Liquor Bar, now located right next to Madeleine’s new location, directly across the street from Auntie’s Books and Santé. Although Madeleine’s had planned to reopen in October, doors didn’t once again open until this spring, and I began to plan my first trip back.
