The reason I like restaurants that are not chains is because I enjoy the creativity and uniqueness that can only be found in a one-off restaurant. This is not that restaurant. The menu is very typical with no obvious innovation. Lunch is soup, salad, or...sandwich. For lunch I had the Reuben sandwich; the corned beef was obviously from a package, not from a baked corned beef. The Thousand Island dressing was not homemade. The french fries however were fantastic! Really crispy and yummy, and I had a hard time not eating them all. The service was okay; our waiter came to our table to take our order, and when we weren't quite ready, it took him at least over 10 minutes to return again. Later in the meal, he offered me a coffee refill, but he didn't return. My friend got the salmon salad, which was also fairly typical, with no unusual toppings or dressing. After the lunch, we did both get a dessert to take home. I got a caramel pecan tart that was very good.More

This restaurant has really good food, an excellent menu selection, and fantastic desserts. The staff really tries to please. We used outdoors seating; indoors seemed a bit too crowded. Trout and veal were perfectly prepared. I'm not sure why so many otherwise great restaurants try...to serve "mixed vegetables". You always end up with some overcooked and some under-cooked. That was our only complaint.More

My husband and I are frequent guests at Marigold Cafe. We prefer to go there for lunch instead of dinner. Service is always great, very friendly. Wonderful baked goods and breads. However, after seeing on our check the price of a little apple tart that...we ordered, I am truly shocked. We are talking a tiny little tart, the size of a flat donut for more than $7 ! Way out of line.More

When visiting Colorado Springs from North Carolina, Marigold Cafe and Bakery are a priority for us. The owner, Gus, is passionately genuine in the care of his guests. Our party of six enjoyed a variety of the beautifully prepared dishes. The oysters on the half...shell were fresh, sweet and expertly prepared. The garlic butter escargot was served nice and hot, and in the traditional French manner. The braised beef short ribs were so tender, the meat fell off of my fork. The mashed potatoes were whipped and creamy, and the large bone-in pork chop with melted Brie cheese was juicy and tender. The wine and specialty cocktails were delicious and reasonably priced. You don’t want to pass on the desserts. I had the Hazelnut Torte with chocolate ganache. It was light, moist and tasty. My husband loved the refreshing and delicious White Strawberry Cake. Our dinner experience was delicious and delightful. We look forward to our next visit!More

Oh..wow! We came here because of the favorable reviews. We add another--Sept 2020. This is the best moderately priced dining experience we've had in town. Heads up--if you want dessert, don't order an appetizer. Or plan on taking a dessert home. The entre plates are...generous. Everything ordered was delicious; calamari, salmon, steak. We took a slice of cake home. The main and dessert menus are not short of selections. You'll see the desserts when you first walk in. Make sure to get one. The staff was friendly and efficient. Marigold is definitely worth a try.More

We had beef bourguignon and snapper. The beef was excellent, but the snapper was disappointing. It was served in a shallow bowl and was completely submerged in a tomato/kalamata olive/caper sauce. in my opinion it smothered and overpowered a well prepared fish. Service was very...good. Deserts are excellent.More

We had the Salad Nicoise and the Curry Chicken Sandwich. Both were delicious! The salad had beautiful fresh vegetables and wonderful tuna. The sandwich wasn’t spicy but it was oh so flavorful! We opted for fruit with the sandwich. It was ripe and fresh. We...also got some French pastries. We shared the apple tart which had paper thin apples and an almond filling and crust. So good! We also shared the Fraiser cake that was full of whole strawberries, the best pastry cream I’ve ever had and tender white cake. Yum! We would go again!More

Don't know if they deliver, but would definitely recommend their delicious bakery goods. Recommend calling Marigold to ask if they deliver.
