Looking for places that serve good croque monsieurs. Or even better, a croque madame...I love fried eggs on a sandwich.

      Check out Mr. Marceau at the L.A. Farmer's Market. They have the best one around.

        I'll second this rec for Monsieur Marcel. Very good croque monsieur.

          Cafe Marly, on Santa Monica in Bev. Hills does a decent one. If I'm not mistaken, I think Bluebird Cafe, in Culver City, also has one on their menu. If they do, it will be good, since everything they do is.

            My favorite is Campanile on Thursday night's Grilled Cheese Night. They have both, but I can't seem to ever not get the madame. good luck.

              It really is delicious there, and Campanile was the first place that came to mind!

              Nicole's Gourmet in South Pasadena. They use real bechamel sauce.

                  They serve an incredible Croque Madame as an appetizer at Hatfield's.
