Went there for the first time today with friends and will not go back. It was busy and that is wonderful but don't ask for ANY variance at all. I wanted a ham and cheese omlette and they cannot navigate that. Order an omlette and you get a bunch of ingredients you don't want or like. They offer to remove... More

Love, love, love this place. Small place filled with people who love their jobs. Fresh, hot, made-to-order breakfast every time we visit Madison. Probably the only place we visit every time we are in Madison. (Our daughter is a Badger!) Fresh squeezed OJ - Yum.

A great little cafe off the square in downtown Madison. Was here around 8am on a weekday, and it was busy, but not crowded. No issues finding a table. Friendly staff and fantastic food. Had the two eggs (subbed whites) with bacon, the marigold potatoes, and toast. Great flavors in the potatoes, and the eggs were cooked perfectly. Enjoyed, and... More

I thought the pastries were very good and the scones and coffee just delicious. However, I thought the breakfast left a lot to be desired. I ordered two eggs and they came with one small piece of toast which felt insulting. I am not sure we will ever return for the breakfast but will always take the pastries to go.

Wow! So much flavor in the chilaquiles, sorta felt like it was straight out of Mexico. A little pricey though and they forgot the avocado I paid for. Great view of the lake down the street and a fun place to just waste the morning away drinking coffee.

Even though they screwed up my order and put mustard on my sandwich when I asked for it without, I was able to eat around it and it was still very good. I liked the water dispenser they had, too. The decor was charming.

Ate here for Saturday brunch around noon. Had the breakfast choices - pancakes, French toast, frittata and omelette. I sampled everyone's plate and they were all excellent. The strawberry lemonade (non-alcoholic) was very good, but I was shocked to find out that it was $4 per glass (I only had one glass). Would recommend stopping in here to try out... More

Loved everything here! I got there black iced coffee which was so refreshingly good. I also got the chilaquiles and my friends got the salmon frittata and the duck hash which were all very delicious! The chilaquiles were a bit spicy though but I love spicy so it was perfect for me! I came here on a Mon morning and... More

My fiancé and I stumbled upon this place while looking for a sunday brunch spot. We got lucky and were through the line and at our table within 15 minutes. The variety on the breakfast menu was fantastic with almost to many things to choose from. I ordered a bacon,tomato, spinach, and cream cheese omelette and was blown away by... More

My daughter brought me to Marigold's for a mid-morning Sunday breakfast. We lucked out as the line was reasonable, and we ordered our food within ten minutes. Although the sidewalk tables were full, one of the servers who saw us looking came and got us even after we had sat down inside to wait for our food! While my daughter,... More
