Great service! Nice place for breakfast/brunch.

We tried this place on a Thursday morning at 10:30am and this place was completely empty. I assume it gets really really busy and more boisterous on weekends as per the other reviews so if you don't want to wait, go on a weekday! This holds especially true if you have a larger group as I could see... read more

Even though Café Marquesa only opens from Wednesdays to Sundays it still a place where you can have a nice and quiet breakfast (not on weekends!) and enjoy the good service. Red Velvet Pancakes are to die for with that unbelievable glaze that I cant just forget! Benedict egs, El Diego Sandwich and basically the breakfast menu is delicious. For... More

Eggs florentine and Benedict are fantastic. Served with a small side of red potatoes, it's just the right size. The place was packed and we were seated and served right away. High quality tea and coffee too! We would definitely go back.

Breakfast can be served anywhere and has the same items but this is what attention to details and great produce can create. They are the best breakfast in town.

Everything was excellent - even the service. Small place with... More

We wandered around and stumbled onto this hidden gem for breakfast. Located down a small street, you'll be greeted by friendly servers. The food is tasty and the coffee was excellent. We ate here two mornings in a row!!!
