La Madeleine Country French Cafe
, a bakery and dining establishment, will hold its grand opening Thursday, April 21, in the Rock Creek Square Plaza Shopping Center at 12210 W. Markham St.

The Chi restaurant family owns the Arkansas franchise for La Madeleine, which was founded in 1983 in Dallas as a bakery by Patrick Esquerre. The Chis will open four other La Madeleines in Arkansas over the next few years.

To celebrate the grand opening, the first 50 guests in line at 6:30 a.m. will win a weekly supply of La Madeleine’s breads for a year. (They will receive certificates for pickup weekly at the restaurant.)

The 5,500-square-foot restaurant will have a large covered patio for year-round use, a double-sided fireplace, French country decor and a view of the bakery kitchen. Besides pastries — including a strawberry Napoleon — the menu includes quiches, omelets, soups, salads, sandwiches and entrees, including paella, salmon, beef bourguignon, chicken and pastas, specialty coffees and a small wine list. The restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
