I was invited to join a friend at one of her local favorite breakfast spots. Great choice!!! She had an egg white frittata while I had a turkey hash with poached eggs and hollandaise sauce on top. Both came with a side of fresh fruit. Sweet, fresh touch to our monster size breakfast plates. The wait staff always gave a... More

I would give this establishment 5 stars but our waiter Packy, was a bit of a disappointment. The place has a nice vibe, reasonable prices and very good food. I would ask Packy to not carry water and wine glasses with his fingers on the rim (beverages should alway be carried on a tray) and to check back after the... More

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor which is always at good way to find a good restaurant in an area you're not familiar with. It was early, around 4:30 PM when we went in for dinner and lucked into several 'happy hour' specials - drinks and appetizers. The service was really good as the restaurant wasn't yet busy. The...

I was reluctant to eat at this place because I have a Marmalade Cafe by my house - Sherman Oaks. So I knew it was part of a chain. I really like local and different and hate tourist spots and the pretentiousness that goes with that 'L.A. attitude' you sometimes get in the places that draw tourists. But my friend... More

We went to the Marmelade cafe for breakfast, and the food was great. Had french toast and eggs benedict, and it was great. Beware; Portions are BIG if you are not american :) Staff was friendly and very attentive, atmosphere was cosy. Only downside; only 1 bathroom for the whole restaurant, which even was shared with the staff. It wasnt... More

When you take a limo to the beach and stay with John Travolta in the Malibu Colony, let him know you will only be having breakfast with Jennifer here at Marmalade Cafe. One morning I had the eggs benedict scramble. Another morning I had a couple of eggs and bagel skins with cream cheese. And I must say that Jennifer... More

Thank you Sam & Peggy, I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed the corn soup and of course your comments about our Filet Mignon Chili are much appreciated. Don't feel like you should avoid the desserts, we have a delicious Rhubarb and Mixed Berry crumble, a very light, fruit dominant treat. Hope you can make it in to try... More

We were on a short trip to LA and decided to drive up to Malibu on Saturday morning. We found Marmalade's via a Google search and was that a dream!!
