The Foyer de la Madeleine – by Elise (400th article!)

Located under Madeleine Church, the Foyer de la Madeleine is an original place.
We come to have lunch and to enjoy the beauty of the place, but also to make a good action.  
Le principle is simple : run by volunteers, the Foyer offers good and cheap meals in the in the archeds caves of the Madeleine. The money raised is donated to the persons in need.
The price ? Once the annual membership to the association paid (5 €), a little card is given. Then you can choose the menu whose price goes from 7 to 10 €.

The entrance of the Foyer is on the right side of the Madeleine (boulevard de la Madeleine).
Take a seat ! Dare to pace up and down in the caves before choosing your table, in fact we don’t realize the size of the place. For instance a room is located after the kitchens. Greet the chef and let’s go !
The starters already are on the tables. If you do’nt like the one in front of you you can change with the one which is on another table. Then the volunteers – who are extremly kind – come to take your order for the main meal and the dessert. Some minutes later your, you are served.
The meals are simple but good, a little like at the school canteen ! Plus the decoration !
