Our first morning in Pasadena we were hungry but slept in too late to take advantage of breakfast at many of the restaurants nearby. Fortunately Marston's was a quick walk from our hotel (The Westin) and we got there in time for brunch. We sat on the front porch of this converted historical home and enjoyed the beautiful weather. We... More

My husband and I both liked this restaurant. We came for breakfast on a Sunday morning and there were people waiting outside before they even opened which was a good sign. The portions here are large and filling. You won't go away hungry. The wait staff is very attentive and service oriented. We would definitely go back here again when... More

Really cute place, tough parking but great breakfasts and nice staff = Nirvana! I repeat: tough parking after 9:00 AM.

We enjoyed a late brunch at Marston's on a Saturday. Arriving a-half hour before closing it was not crowded. We chose to sit on the pleasant front porch. I ordered the egg white omelette. I thought it was very tasty (but a little too greasy). My partner got the Rueben sandwich which was served open faced with mounds of meat.... More

We decided on breakfast and you know they get it right. The perfect meal...fresh and nice size portions. Fluffly eggs and pancakes. Would definitely come here again. Across the street where you can walk off the calories.

A local person recommended this restaurant for breakfast. It is a small and very charming cottage. We set on the front porch and had a fresh and delicious breakfast.

Welcome to Marston's. Weekends trying to get a table for breakfast can be a bit of a wait, but weekday mornings is when this place shines. No matter when you dine here, be sure to order the French Toast with the cornflake crumbs. Other things we have ordered and loved are the Huevos Rancheros, Turky Club, and the Veggy Omelette....
