Very good Breakfast

Wow this is a wonderful place for breakfast! The wait staff was polite and very friendly. There was a bunch of young families, couples, old guys, and group singles all having a grand time. The food was fabulous. You do have to wait in line but well worth the wait.

Took our daughter to brunch at Marigold Kitchen on her suggestion. She has been there several times with other UW Madison students and enjoyed it. It was packed at noon and we ordered our food, was given a number and waited about ten minutes for a table to open up. We were given a table for two although we were... More

Fresh food, lots of veggies and tasty dishes. Very casual atmosphere. Not open for dinner. Right near the Capitol. Excellent!

If I could give 3.5 stars, i.e., "good"--better than average, not quite very good--I would. My omelet with potatoes was tasty. Not amazing, but good, flavorful, with the potatoes being quite addictive. The atmosphere is loud and crowded in a small space. You stand in line to order your food and then a server brings it to you--I was with... More

This little place cranks out the most creative and flavorful breakfast dishes around! From a Duck Confit with eggs to their Breakfast Sandwich everything is good. In spite of the calories they must contain because they taste so good; you have to have the house potatoes! They are worth every minute they cost me at the gym!! Gets very crowded... More

We just visited this restaurant as many, many people have recommended it to us for a while. This place seems such a big deal to Madison. In all honesty, this place was good but not what it was hyped up to be. First off, you're lucky to get a table when you seat yourself. The room is very loud and... More

This breakfast and lunch cafe is wonderful. Flowers on the tables, friendly staff, excellent food choices. The sauces they use on what would otherwise be your typical breakfast entrees give a depth of flavor you don't get at your usual breakfast cafe. We will definitely visit here whenever we are in town. Discovered Boursin cheese and all the flavors you... More

There might be a line to order your food but don't worry......This place is worth the wait. The breakfast pastries and scones are amazing.

We loved the Marigold Cafe--and ate there twice on our holiday visit to Madison. The first time we visited we were greeted with samples of EggNog (with or without alcohol), a pleasant surprise. The duck confit hash, squash soup, scramblers and frittatas were fabulous. Adding to the ambiance was live music that was practically magical for the pre-Christmas atmosphere. We... More
