Not very often am I able to order gluten free French toast and then have it taste outstanding but at Marigold Kitchen it was. It was a generous portion with a sweet cream sauce delicately poured on top with fresh berries and real maple syrup. I thought it was delicious so I had a foodie at our table try it... More

Met family for breakfast and while we had a very large party both times, the staff was able to seat us and serve us as relatively quickly on a packed Farmers Market Saturday. The food was fine, the service was great, the self-refills on coffee was a wonderful touch as they would otherwise have been too busy to be on... More

Have gone here a couple times for breakfast. Generally have to get items to go so I can get back to work. Food is fresh and good.

Over-rated, over-priced and underwhelming food. The location is good; the ambience is nice, but the food disappoints. We went for breakfast and the toast was burned and eggs arrived luke-warm. For the cost, you would expect more.

Marigold Kitchen is a bustling little cafe in downtown Madison just steps from the Capitol. We happened in on a very busy weekday lunch hour with a party of four. The counter people were efficient, friendly and helpful at every step of our visit, but the food, oh the food... truly shines here. Someone at this place really knows food... More

I've been here over the years starting when it was the darling lunch spot for downtown. Frankly they're just not at all special anymore, nor are they a value for what you get. The chicken curry sandwich was ok but rather runny and on a boring bread option. My guest was looking forward to a great salad and the one... More

Crowded, disorganized, and disappointing. Place your order, get a number and wait. Semi-self service. Get your own silverware, refill your own coffee and water. Overpriced brunch for what you get. The lemon poppyseed pancakes with fruit were covered with this huge glop of butter. Any Greek diner would have better eggs, sausage, and potatoes.

Small and quiet. Great service and food. Would definitely recommend. We were there on a Friday and it was nearly deserted. Don't know why because everything about the experience was very enjoyable.

Nice little place with a trendy atmosphere. Loved the jazz music. The food is very good and I wish the portions were maybe a tad larger (because it was good). Not expensive, but a little high for breakfast.
