In Madison for a conference and while there a lot of restaurants around Capital Square, this one stands out for its delicious fare. I liked it so much that I ate there twice in five days. The quiche of the day with greens was well seasoned and filling, but the portions were not the usual way-too-much on the plate. On... More

Ate a late breakfast at the Marigold today. Got there about 10:00 and were able to sit right down. We liked it a lot. Good, interesting menu and great food. They tweak the normal breakfast items. You order at the counter and they bring the food to your table. Very efficient service. Make sure you look at the blackboard behind... More

After taking on parking, walking State Street, and then half the Art Fair on the Square to get here, we were getting tired of the bustle and the crowds. Seeing the line almost scared us off. So glad I didn't let my impatience cause us to eat somewhere else! Our wait from the door to ordering was about 15 minutes.... More

We've been here multiple times and the food never disappoints. Breakfast with a twist, and locally sourced ingredients. I tried the duck hash and it was wonderful!

They are way too small to keep up with demand. We waited over 40 minutes and cold only eat at the counter. The food was ok, not really worth the wait.

In town on business - stopped in for breakfast the other day and just loved it! We'd never been there before and happen to arrive at opening. Good thing we did as the place just filled up after us. We really wanted just a good, down-home breakfast and couldn't have been happier! Eggs cooked perfectly, killer blueberry pancakes, great bacon... More

My second visit to this restaurant was on a busy Sunday. The line moved quickly and the busy staff handled everything efficiently with a smile. The omelet was top notch and made to my special request with those Great Marigold potatoes.

I've had several friends highly recommend the Marigold Kitchen, so we decided to try it for lunch this week. We got there a little before noon and there was a line to the door. Ordering takes place a the counter and they have menus to peruse while you are waiting in line. The menu consists of breakfast items as well... More

Went for a fast, healthy breakfast here and was impressed as they cater to veggies. Vegans plus traditional diners. Nice atmosphere, fast & friendly. Loved it.

This is a great place for lunch. Order at the counter, find a table and wait until they call your number. However, it's crowded at noon.
