Marmalade is just the place for a nice meal when strolling lower Montana, and the food is good. Nice pleasant upscale decor and furnishings. You can go simple with their great salads or have one of your favorites. Courteous staff. You'll enjoy. ...

Love the big omlettes, corn and mixed berry muffins, and oat currant scones for breakfast options. Omlettes and pancakes are great too

It funny when you live in a community and realize that you walk past the same restaurant a few times a week and never try it. Well today I walked in. It is a little interesting with deli concepts about where to start. Salads and entrees are past the check out counters flatware across the room from cookies and pastries... More

The place was very cosy but we were still able to seat 11 of us with no problem (we did call ahead to make a reservation). Very good food at a very good price. I ordered the Eggs Benedict with Salmon and it was super delicious. It was a lot of food for the price too. The Bacon, Mushroom, Spinach... More

While on vacation we often eat breakfast out. I usually order the eggs benedict if they are on the menu and these were perfect. The eggs were perfectly cooked the sauce was not overwhelming the dish, and was quite tasty. I have not had a better breakfast on this trip. We also ordered a pancake for the table to share....

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...

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.
