The staff at the Marion Cafe were wonderful. Apparently there was a craft show in Marion on the same weekend as we visited. Some of their specials were sold out, but the food was good and reasonably priced.

Recently enjoyed an evening meal, and breakfast the next morning at this little hometown cafe. It has a quaint atmosphere with wonderful antique decorations. Service both times was great, extremely friendly and helpful staff. In my opinion they have the best omelets in town! While your in town visiting, I highly recommend a stop at Marion Cafe.

I was with a group of 35 people. They seated us quickly and we were served fast as well. This is the ideal "Mayberry" type of home-cooking Cafe. I loved it and could have eaten there over and over again. I wasn't feel perky so I asked if they could just make me a grilled cheese. Well, I could not... More

We stopped here a month ago, food and service were great, they accepted my debit card. We stopped here today, I ordered the Zesty Italian Sub--all bead, hardly any meat. My daughter ordered the BLT, the waitress told me that it comes with chips but when the bill arrived I discovered that they charged us for an extra order of... More

Ordered breakfast and it was a very good breakfast, maybe one of the best in town,. Service was good and the meal was... More

Marion Cafe is a great place to eat! It's full of Southern charm, from the ever-changing display of antiques to the checkered tablecloths and simple, easy-to-read menus. So far, I've enjoyed the Kentucky Hot Brown, club sandwich, and homemade potato chips. They give you plenty to eat, and the prices are pretty good. The staff treat you like a welcomed... More

On our way to the Amish settlement we stopped in Marion at the Marion Café for breakfast. All I can say is WOW. It's a small town kind of place with all kinds of antiques as decorations. We were there early and so most of those already seated seamed to be locals as the waitress seemed to know them. This... More

A really great place for really good food! Catfish fillet with fried okra and hush puppies is fantastic. The service is prompt, the staff is very friendly and the prices cannot be beat. A super place to eat!
