Marston's is in a small bungalow with a crowd of people waiting outside, for good reason! Add your name to the list and don't worry if there are a lot of names in front of yours, as they move people through surprisingly quickly. Everyone in our party of 5 loved what they ordered. The pancakes and eggs Benedict were both... More

Whenever I am in the area and have time for breakfast this is where I go. I have brought co-workers here and done business when the opportunity arises.

Had breakfast here recently and enjoyed the experience. This seems like that place locals take their visiting friends and family. Walkable for all in the area and appeared to have a lot of friendly regulars who gave suggestions and reviews of the menu. There was a lot of talk about the wonderful French Toast. The French toast is good anda... More

Adorable cottage set on a side street. Busy for a weekday morning. Good solid food, reasonable prices and service with a smile. Greek yogurt and fresh fruit exceptional.

We make an annual trip to Pasadena and stay in the Old Town area or close to it. The first time in I found Marston's on TripAdvisor and we've been going back every time we're in town. From two of the hotels it's been a nice walk to the restaurant. But they have a parking lot and there's also on-street... More

Marston's is known for it's homey atmosphere & yummy french toast & pancakes. Lunch is good as well. parking is scarce so may have to walk a block or so to get there unless you are incredibly lucky to get one of the very few spots next to the restaurant. Get there right before it opens as there usually is... More

Came with fruit which was good, but no toast which I thought was strange, since... More
