Stroll on Montana and a local place for breakfast

We live in Santa Monica. My wife and I love the atmosphere of this place. Its a bit pricy but this is the expensive neighborhood of Santa Monica. The breakfast is wonderful.

While staying in Malibu for the weekend we ventured out early morning in search of breakfast spot. Marmalade is a small restaurant offering standard American faire. Coffee was really good. Breakfast was decent. The turkey in the turkey Benedict was a bit dry but still decent. Pancakes were good. I will return and try some of their deli sandwiches for... More

Our hotel's friendly concierge (Hotel Huntley) recommended this cozy place and finally we ended up going there twice during our 4-day Santa Monica visit: first for lunch and the next day for breakfast. The staff were very friendly and they actually remembered us the second day and the lady (perhaps one of the owners?) welcomed us with a smile "oh,... More

If I am in the neighborhood I always stop by to pick up their wonderfully fresh salads from the salad bar. This place is a real treat. They have daily specials that would satisfy for any time of day and great pastries and dessert. There is communal seating and a few tables on the sidewalk. This neighborhood hangout is located...

EVERYHING at Marmalade is Delicious! You can have Breakfast or Brunch or have some take out Home made food. Make sure to arrive there early on a Sunday since it's very popular! You can stroll afterwards around Lovely Montana Avenue!

I have been going to Marmalade since it opened many years ago as a single location. They ALWAYS have amazing soups and pre-made food. There are many healthy options. They have delicious baked goods. I love to get the salmon salad - think tuna salad but made with salmon and capers. I also like the many vegan soup options -... More

Two of us met an old friend for lunch at Marmalade. One person had a special chicken sandwich, which she enjoyed. I had the half-size Cobb salad, which I couldn't finish because it was really big. My friend had the full-size Cobb Salad, in which she barely made a dent. The salad was fresh and full of perfectly chopped ingredients.... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
