A Hidden Gem

Very refreshing change to have a independent café in chester that serves fresh, well prepared food and caters for Gluten free people too. All of the food is freshly prepared and reasonably priced. Definitely going to be one of my regular haunts :)

We ate here twice. This is a lovely place with a suitable menu for a light bite. I enjoyed a different panini on the two occasions. My husband had homemade soup both times. We recommend this eatery.

We've reviewed Marmalade before and given full marks. Here we are again more than a year later making even more positive comments than previous. This small restaurant goes out of it's way to offer you a variety of good, well prepared food. The owner listens to clients' suggestions and does her very best to make sure that all tastes are...

Small and friendly place - Fresh food, speedy drinks but orders took at least 45 mins to come and when it did it was lovely. Staff friendly and helpful - people kept letting the door bang so it was a bit annoying - have been a few times when we are not in a rush! A bit pricey but plenty... More

Lovely cafe! Very clean inside and out. Staff were very friendly. Service was good but it took 25mins+ for a cooked breakfast to arrive. Food was very nice and portions were good.

After previous nightmares of trying to find somewhere which caters for coeliacs to take my mum for her birthday (and in some cases, even knowing what coeliac is!!), I came across Marmalade. Everything is made fresh to order and anything can be made gluten free, which is fabulous considering the limited choices in other restaurants, usually resulting in an order... More

I visited Marmalade with a friend after looking for somewhere coeliac friendly. The afternoon tea came with sandwiches on gluten free bread, 2 gluten free cakes, and a gluten free scone with jam and cream, as well as a generous pot of tea. I was very impressed with the food so will definitely be returning! The staff were very friendly... More

Visited in June, 2014 to have a little lunch. We ordered a hot chocolate, coffees, some cake and paninis. Everything was delicious and fresh. Liked the attentive service. It took some time to get our food, but as everything is made due orders you can meanwhile enjoy your delicios coffee and relax. Great place, highly recommended.

The cafe was almost empty when we arrived, we ordered coffee and cooked breakfasts. The coffee came straight away, but the food took over half an hour to arrive. When the food did come, it was excellent. Nice cafe, nice food, shame about the slow cooking.
