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

Stopped in here on out way up the coast. Great place with an extensive menu including gluten free options. The coffee was awesome along with the service.

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

The food was fantastic, and the atmosphere was very nice! I have nothing more to add but trip advisor is forcing me to add to this review, so I give trip advisor a zero rating.

Many moons ago I was a Pepperdine student, so on our recent LA trip I had to bring my husband here. This is one of the places we used to bring our parents to when they visited us at school. Well, long story short, my breakfast was just as good as I remembered, maybe even better. I got my old... More

A perfect stop in a hectic day. Good food. OK service. Try the salmon salad Nicosia, watermelon fresca, and seabass taco. All fresh and delicious.

Had an evening meal here which was fantastic. Decided to go back 2 days later for brunch. Another success. Great place to eat with great friendly staff. Highly recommend a visit.

This is most enjoyable for me when it isn't a holiday so that I don't have to wait for a table long. The food is good and not outlandish prices for Malibu. Locals and tourists alike flock here. It can be really noisy and hard to hear if you have more than 4 at a table. The wait staff is... More

We went to the Marmalade Cafe with a group of 8 people. Everyone ordered something different. We all enjoyed our meals. The presentation was great, the atmosphere is relaxing, the service was very good. The food was fresh and made from scratch. Very enjoyable dining experience.
