Description: Over 20 years ago, three young entrepreneurs with a passion for food and a desire to make customers happy, came together with a simple idea: serve fresh, high quality, eclectic California inspired food for busy Angelenos. They would cook for those too busy to cook. In 1990 the original Marmalade Cafe opened on Montana Avenue in Santa Monica. The 1,400 square foot store with limited seating featured a full bakery and cases of fresh salads and entrees for diners on the go. Marmalade Cafe was an instant success and was quickly adopted by the community. Less than three years later, in response to an increasing number of appeals for a full dining experience at Marmalade Cafe, founders Selwyn Yosslowitz, Robert Burn Jr. and Bonnie Burns opened the first full service Marmalade Cafe in Malibu. With only 100 seats, Marmalade Cafe Malibu quickly became a cornerstone in the eclectic Malibu community. This constant demand for the fresh California cuisine characteristic of Marmalade Cafe led to the restaurant's expansion into major Los Angeles communities. Today, Marmalade Cafe has nine units with locations across Los Angeles County as well as Santa Barbara. Each cafe is unique in design and decor. Adorned with Americana antiques, personally found and placed by Bonnie Burns, every Marmalade Cafe exudes a warm & cozy neighborhood cafe ambiance. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner Marmalade Cafe is the neighborhood cafe that Angelenos depend for everyday meals, holidays and special events. Whether it is a birthday, rehearsal dinner, Thanksgiving or Mother's Day, Marmalade Cafe offers guests excellent, fresh and inventive food. The restaurant's private dining rooms and the full service catering have provided exceptional event services for large LA businesses like Boeing, Mattel, CBS and Warner Brother Studios. At the Marmalade Cafe in The Original Farmers Market, guests are able to enjoy Marmalade's signature items while exploring the historic Los Angeles landmark. The Original Farmers Market, opened by the Gilmore family in 1934, is visited by three million Angelenos and tourists annually. Marmalade Cafe is part is proud to be an integral part of the fabric of Los Angeles dining. The relationship between Marmalade Cafe and Los Angeles is as strong as it was when the first cafe opened on Montana Avenue in Santa Monica.

This place is always busy and the food and drinks are reasonably priced and a good sized portion. It's pretty loud so not good for romance, but great for families or getting a good meal. Sometimes the service can be a little slow if they are busy, but generally I've been happy here. They have a pretty good happy hour, but the bar seating is limited and the HH is only applicable in the bar area.

Not Sure how they stay in business. Food is terrible and service is just as bad. Place is always empty. I guess they are making money somewhere but its not the food.

I like the food at Marmalade, and if you can sit outside or at the bar, definitely it's a good place to go. In the restaurant the din is overwhelming.

Seems like this place should be good, but always out of something on the menu, no draft beer, food not quite right (salad plate was warm). Nothing awful, but there are better places

I've been to all three Marmalade Restaurants. Malibu and Westlake Village consistently meets my expectations, however this cannot be said of this venue. Tip for the staff: do not let someone who is unfriendly and bordering on rude be the host-period.
The host sets the tone for the dining experience. This has happened on two other occasions.
Food is better than average and the service was good.
