We had our hearts set on a perfect coastal diner for breakfast but made our way here when our bellies protested further wait. We were seated immediately which was nice but the experience overall was just OK. The service was spotty and the food we chose was mediocre but kudos for the vegan and gluten free shout outs on the... More

I excused the 45 minute wait the first visit since it was a Sunday morning although the hostess told us it would be 15-20 minutes. After waiting so long I was really wanting to LOVE this place since my friends in Malibu talked it up pretty well. Any cook in a restaurant which serves breakfast should be able to produce... More

One of the best breakfasts my wife and I have ever eaten! ( And we travel a lot!) I had the biscuits and gravy, my wife had the corned beef hash. We then split a chocolate French toast. Everything is made from scratch. Staff was very attentive. Highly highly recommend this place if you're looking for a great breakfast! Can't... More

I love this place. Service can be a little slow during busy times but it's a nice opportunity to relax and catch up with friends. I love the menu it offers a variety of soups, salads, burgers, and they serve breakfast till about 2 PM. I love portobello mushrooms and they have an excellent portobello mushroom salad with fried goat... More

What a great place this was. Located off of the highway, in a higher end outdoor mall, this place had amazing food and great character. The menu was diverse and the egg white omelette. with feta and spinach did not disappoint. Others in our party had eggs benedict and pancakes. The portions were plentiful. Coffee was fresh and tasty. It... More

Pineapple upside down pancake and chocolate french toast - a wonderful way to celebrate with a little delicious decadence. Our mini-celebration was so much fun, we stayed for two and a half hours. During that time our coffee was refreshed and we were checked-in with, but never rushed. Although there are other Marmalade locations in the Los Angeles area, this... More

We went for a business breakfast and the service was very good and the choice of food is amazing it's very fresh and they cook it very well. The restaurant is very clean and well worth a visit, we will be going back.

Four of us went for dinner on a weeknight. We had appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts. The seafood I had was excellent! My daughter had steak that I tasted and I found to be quite good. The waiter was a bit standoffish at first, but seemed to warm to us. He was very prompt and had very good suggestions from... More

This was my tenth annual visit while teaching at Pepperdine in the summer. This is a down to earth cafe with a loads of great menu choices and a great seasonal specialty list. The best thing is that the food is consistently excellent. We started out with the ginger beef steamed dumplings which were terrific. I considered several seasonal specialties,... More

Cruising the Pacific Coast Highway and found this place. Apparently they have other restaurants in the LA area. The place was packed and bustling - always a good sign. We were seated and served by a very pleasant and efficient staff. We had a wonderful, tasty meal. Everything fresh and cooked perfectly. The service was outstanding and while I'm out... More
