We stopped at the Marmalade Cafe for breakfast on our way to Zuma Beach. Great choice of breakfast, excellent quality! The cappuchino was on Italian standard (and we travel Italy a lot)! Service very attentive. We realized that lots of locals frequent this place, always a good sign. Some nice shopping adjacent to the cafe. Will visit again!

The place is really nice. Minimal decoration with no fancy bs to distract you... The food was good and it didn't take a long time to prepare. Tho I do have to point two thibgs out. Our waitor was quite aggressive; not in the sence of rudeness but rather impatient and nervous which was annoying. The other thing was the... More

Visited two Marmalade locations in the space of a few days on our LA vacation and thought this was the better of the two. The Grove restaurant was quite manic at lunchtime and this one was much more laid back in the evening so perhaps not a fair comparison. The fried chicken and mash was superb, the jalapeño burger, ribs... More

I love this place for breakfast. Have never had a bad meal here. Good atmosphere. Great service. My first glitch happened this morning. Our waitress forgot to bring the marmalade! The truth is that I wouldn't have eaten it anyway, as my doctor now tells me to stay away from sugar. But it's the idea. You know? I had to... More
