My sister and I being Melbourne coffee lovers it was hard to find decent coffee in the States, Marmalade Cafe was certainly a winner! Iced Cafe Lattes - 2 days in a row, may have driven out of our way to get them... Delicious flavors, loved the way the milk was frothy on top! 10 points guys! Anyone driving by... More

We stopped for lunch on our way to Pepperdine University. We were easily seated and had great tomato basil soup and a salad. I highly recommend this place for a quick bite to eat.

We went there, a group of 6, and had a great meal. Because we are tourists, this was our first experience there and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anybody. The menu was varied, the food tasty and they accomodated one of our party with dietary restrictions. Would go back anytime.

This is the place where you will have trouble to choose from the menu. Great variety of excellent food with speedy service. No matter what I chose it was always tasty and fresh. I am a great fan of brunch and this place has satisfied my needs.

We decided to visit Malibu whilst in Los Angeles but was quite disappointed as it didn't meet expectations. So we decided to have a meal at this restaurant marmalade cafe. Well the food was excellent I had beef stew with mash potatoes and the meat just fell off the bone. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. Good value for money.

We stopped in for a late lunch, and even though we were seated right away, it took forever for our server to stop by. I should probably mention that the restaurant was practically empty. When our server finally did show-up, she was extremely pleasant. Our food came pretty quickly, and was really quite tasty. However, we didn't see our server... More

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
