We ate here 3 out of 5 mornings on a recent trip to Pasadena and it was great every time! The French Toast with fruit is amazing, and the Eggs Benedict and Macadamia Nut Pancakes rocked as well! The portions are large and generous. We went with a group of 8, 4 and 2 and every time they took great... More

Ok, what impressed me was the fresh food. It is a neat little place. Small, cozy, and comfortable come to mind. Established does as well. It looks like someone's house from the street. Might have been at one time. Small seating area, maybe get 30 people in there, and outside for maybe 10 more. Like I said, the ingredients are... More

Four of us had breakfast on a Saturday in July. We walked over from the Courtyard Marriott 2 blocks away. My husband went over before the rest of us to put our name on the list, 20 minutes later we walked over and were called as we arrived. The place is small but efficient and friendly in order taking, serving... More

My daughter and I stopped by for a light Sunday lunch. We shared a Caesar Salad (no additions) and a Tuna Melt with French Fries. Both dishes were pretty ordinary and our waitress knew we were going to share and made arrangements for them to be plated into two portions each. Very thoughtful. Service was attentive, could not fault it.... More

Two words: French toast. Must order corn flake encrusted French toast. Wait is a little crazy on he weekends, but worth it to try at least once. Also recommend the pulled pork Benedict. Novel and delicious. Try to sit outside in the porch as it is a little dreary inside the renovated house.

We opted for Marston's after a bad experience (for me) at breakfast the day before at Urth Cafe. This place is quaint with very friendly staff. Parking was easy early in the morning. I ordered the 2 eggs, potatoes & bacon. Easy and delicious. My friend ordered the corn flakes french toast. It was delicious. The portions were sizable so... More

Good choice for breakfast - but tough parking situation. Food was nice and the service is friendly and efficient. A well oiled team.

We were staying at the Westin and strolled around the corner to find this gem of a cottage! It is so good, you have to wait a short while to be seated if you don't get there early, but it is worth the wait! Great coffee, even better wheat toast and the most wonderful eggs. Couldn't wait to return the... More

We chose Marston's based on Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. We met our daughter and her boyfriend there to celebrate my wife's birthday on a Sunday morning. I called the restaurant and they do not take reservations but predicted a half hour wait for Sunday morning and they were just about right. We got there 30 minutes ahead... More

We were told this place wasn't to be missed for breakfast, and while breakfast was, indeed, very good--it wasn't an "OMG"a experience. Omelets were good, but nothing beyond normal. French toast with corn flake crunches was very unusual and tasty.
