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!

Colorful and unique, love the antiques and price tags on the goods on the walls. The food is excellent and homemade. Remarkable home town friendly and smoke free and well worth the stop.

Had a great lunch on Saturday, March16th. The cafe was busy, with a table of 12, but the service was good. I had the Kentucky Brown Hot which was very good. My wife had the zesty Italian toasted sub which was OUTSTANDING! That sandwich alone is a reason to eat there if you are within an hour of Marion! To... More
