Beautiful, cozy spot with a wonderful host (Ethan) and the best crepes in town. Get the biquette!

First of all: perfect post hibernation/quarantine experience- everything felt so relaxing. The service was fantastic and welcoming, the food was inspiring and exactly what I needed, and the atmosphere was calm and what I was hoping for. Second of all: I would crawl over lava to have the lavender creme brûlée again!

We absolutely love the place! Our server Ethan was super helpful and friendly, and the food was amazing! We had the green french toast and was delicious and like nothing we had had before. The portions are not skimpy and it was a great value. Highly recommend. I just wish La Kitchenette was in my city. Will definitely be back next time we are in Madison.

La Kitchenette is a gem of a place right in downtown Madison. The food and ambiance are both delightful. I'd go again anytime.

The waiter, Ethan is the man! Every time we go there, he makes us feel like we are invited to his place for a nice brunch. We experience the best service because of him. Thanks Ethan!

We took another couple since they had never been before. They loved the French cafe vibe and of course the food, just as we do every time we visit.

24 hours later and I’m still telling everyone I know how incredible this experience was. Nothing short of excellent on every level. Our server gave us recommendations that were absolutely perfect, the staff was friendly, and the ambience was very comfortable. The food was next level. Perfect for a date night.

Absolutely delightful experience at La Kitchenette. I've always been a big fan of small and intimate restaurants. The food was wonderful, we went for the date night special which is such an incredible deal (2 entrees, 2 desserts, and a bottle of wine for $45 per couple). The service was quick and our waitress was so sweet. Cannot wait to go back.

Fantastic experience. Fresh squeezed orange juice and hot tea to start. Green French Toast - smoked salmon for me, prosciutto for the other. Verbal tums. Flavors and textures just like our pastry chef/server described - complex and amazing combinations. We finished with a true cappucino and a lavendar creme brulee. We loved every bite of the dessert. Mia had served the last piece of Opera Cake so we missed out- we will be back to savor and enjoy again. Highly recommend !! Awesome Experience ❤

Overall, loved the experience at this restaurant. Was very intimate, relaxing, and the service and ambiance were incredible. Such a cute place and the food was fun to try. Ordered the charcuterie and was unexpectedly disappointed because it did not come with any cheese (only some yummy meats, bread, butter and pickles). Later discovered that “charcuterie” actually means “assortment of cured meats.” Overall was a lovely and memorable experience.
The best part was the dessert. Wow! I would come back.
