We mainly used the deli area which had a large selection of sandwiches, desserts, drinks, and natural, organic products. We stopped here for sandwiches each day we were headed out to sight see. The breads, meats, and vegetables were all fresh and prepared with what ever you wanted on them. The salad bar looked very enticing but we didn't try... More

I go to the Marlene's in Federal Way as well. I love the wide range of organic products and produce. They also have a great juice and smoothie bar. The gift section has lots of great clothing, candles, accessories and jewelry. Marlene's is my go to store whenever I am in town.

Located in the Gateway Plaza next door to the Hampton hotel right off of 320th and I-5 in Federal Way , Washington. Great store for everything a health conscience person can look for in a market like this with a pretty tasty Deli located in the Gateway center plaza in between the Gateway movie theater in the Hampton hotel off...

The salad bar is VERY good. Lots of selections. My only wish is that they would change up the hot meat over just having taco meat everyday.

I enjoy eating here because of the myriad of choices! From hot choices, side dishes, soups, salad bar, espresso bar, and juice bar there's something for every hankering. I'd recommend the quiche. The bakery has the most luscious Black Bottom pie! Also enjoy the peanut butter cookies made with tofu. Service is efficient and friendly!

Marlenes is a great local place for lunch and supplements. The staff is usually quite knowledgeable and friendly. The quality of produce is hard to beat and they have a a good amount of variety. Summers are best when all the local bounty comes in so be sure to stop by and enjoy yourself. Theres plenty to meander through and... More

If I had to choose one business as the best of Federal Way, this is it! Decades before Whole foods existed Marlene's was established. The store is very large (previously an REI store). SHe spent hundreds of thousands on designing and building the most perfectly controlled room for seeds, grains etc. Fresh produce, personal care, even all natural make up.... More

This is a Deli within a market. They offer items that are a generally on the healthful side. They have a good, and complete salad bar and some prepared meat dishes (e.g., meat loaf), fish, and pizza slices, all sold by weight, that can be warmed prior to serving. Basically it is cafeteria-style: you get your main item at the... More

We've shopped at Marlene's for many years now, and have also eaten at the deli. Things can be a little pricey at Marlene's, but unless you want to drive from Federal Way into Seattle or Tacoma to go to Whole Foods, this is the next best option. As for the deli, they have good food, but it can be a... More
