If you love bread as much as Oprah does, then you'll want to be one of the first in line when the newest la Madeleine Country French Café opens.

That's because on opening day, Tuesday, October 25, the first 100 guests in line at 6:30 a.m. will receive one loaf of bread or baguette each month for a year.

Get there early if you want you some of that. And I do mean early. In other cities where they've done this people have been known to line up as early as 3 or 4 in the morning for their shot at free bread for a year.

La Madeleine Country French Café, located at 6801 N. Mesa in the same shopping center where Whole Foods Market is, offers breakfast, lunch and dinner in a relaxed cafe-setting.

Known for its tomato basil soup, Croque Monsieur sandwich, and incredible pastries, the fast-casual restaurant's offerings also include pastas, salads, quiche, and a variety of coffee.

This will be La Madeleine's second El Paso location; the first opened at the Fountains at Farah in East El Paso in 2014.
