I've been to Marco & Pepe twice. Once with my mom and another with a girlfriend. Both times I've gotten the half portion, which has been the perfect amount of food. The food is overpriced so the half portion helps to make it more reasonable! The chairs and tables outside are adorable, but holy crap are they uncomfortable. I was... More

Passing through Jersey City, my Sis said we have to stop and get the French toast made from croissants. Nice, busy corner spot across from City Hall. Friendly service, and it was very good

We had nice brunch with family and friends here on a Sunday in early August. The food is good and the ambience is nice. Service is a bit slow, but it is a small operation and everything was clearly freshly made. Not a bad spot for a quick bite in JC

My wife and I, having had good food here quite a few times, came by for an early dinner -- only one other table was occupied. Historically, what happens at most casual restaurants in such a situation? The servers are huddled together, talking amongst themselves, and service to the few diners is sloppy. Blame management, and blame very nice and... More

What a fun and eclectic brunch menu, served Tuesday through Sunday starting at 11am. There was a bit of a wait in this small-ish Jersey City cafe which was noisy but not too loud to enjoy a good conversation. They have another dining room upstairs, but we opted to eat downstairs where the vibe was. Interestingly decorated with a very... More

I have been visiting Marco & Pepe for roughly 8 years now. The food has always been top notch but the service has always been absolute garbage. I'm actually sitting here now and have been waiting for our drinks for roughly 30 minutes. The kicker is there is roughly 8 servers to maybe 30 patrons? I also love that the... More

We called in for ham and eggs, croissant French toast and coffee. The espresso coffee machine was broken but the filter coffee was OK. The food was freshly prepared and delicious. The service was friendly.

I like Marco & Pepe, the informal ambiance, the quality of food, the location, etc... This time it was a Sunday and it was very busy, which caused the service to be pretty slow. usually I do not mind it too much but it happened that we were both starving and we had to wait for our food a little...

A small but very high quality, health conscious menu. You actually feel good after eating this food. We go about once every 2-3 months and although some of the menu items stay the same they do rotate others, which we like because trying new things is part of the fun of eating out. The portion sizes are average, but filling.... More
