If it is a nice day... dine on the porch. The food is very fresh and fun. The place seems very upbeat and in tune with the times. The converted home gives it a bit of old California vibe, but that is where the past ends.

Highly recommended and well worth the wait for a table. Have been here before and this time settled for the very generous salmon eggs benedict.

Was afraid it wouldn't live up to the hype but had a delicious breakfast. We had huevos rancheros and powerhouse omelette (but spied the french toast at the next table and will have that next time). Coffee was good, too!

Had a lovely Sunday morning breakfast while visiting during Heritage Weekend in November. It was a pleasant and easy walk from the Marriott where we stayed. We were able to dine on the front porch and both my husband and I enjoyed our meals. The coffee was outstanding! Our service was just fine, we never felt neglected or ignored by... More

Charming bungalow-like building houses THE best breakfast spot in Pasadena! Fabulous food - their French toast is out of this world and the California special is amazing. Be warned! The servings are BIG. We could have shared just one plate - but what fun is that?? Service was equally good - happy, efficient, welcoming, and helpful.

Marston's is off the beaten track, set in a house on a busy street. They offering seating on the front porch or inside. They have a great menu with varied selections and good size portions. Prices range in the above $10 range for breakfast like the eggs benedict that I had for just over $14. They offered the standard eggs... More

I've been here before. Staff is nice, food is good (although not heart-healthy) and fairly reasonable prices.

This venue lives up to its reputation as a quality breakfast spot. My eggs benedict cooked to perfection balancing the crisp light crunch toasted muffins.

Tucked away in busy Pasadena is a quaint little bungalow that is home to Marston's. We visited for a Sunday morning breakfast. Being originally from the South, this restaurant is reminiscent of good home cooking. Where else in So Cal could you get pulled-pork Benedict? But, it is the French toast that is truly the best I've ever tasted! The... More

The prices are definitely not comparable to chain breakfasts. However the $14.50 omelette (+$1 to substitute tomato for potato) was big enough for two. Omelette, oatmeal and 2 pancakes = $31! Too many tables crammed in a small space was difficult to maneuver. There's also ridiculously overpriced art on the walls (all the art is for sale). My overall impression... More
