Cute, Quaint, Solid

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

Cute place, long wait to be seated..the french toast and pancakes looked really good, unfortunately I can't eat that stuff and got the powerhouse omelet..just OK, not great, not much flavor, wish they offered feta, gorgonzola cheese or something to jazz it up a bit. Came with fruit which was good, but no toast which I thought was strange, since... More

My wife and I have had breakfast here 15-20 times. Every time was perfect. Marston's is the best bkfst place I've ever been to. The attentive service, the quality of the food, and their wonderful corn flake encrusted French toast make us return again & again. We tried a couple of other purportedly good bkfst places here in pasadena...they simply... More

Pretty much anything you order will taste amazing...toast is to die for! Small cozy place, reasonably priced, the only 2 down falls are that Saturday mornings you have to come prepared to wait to be seated at least 30-40 min average wait and there is only a small parking lot ans only a few street parking spaces.

Based on TA reviews, our party of 4 visited Marston's for breakfast on a Sunday morning. We met at the restaurant at 10:00 a.m. and there was a line out the door waiting for tables. You will most likely need to search for street parking, we were able to find a space just a block away. Our wait was fairly... More
