I have mixed feeling about this particular Marmalade Cafe. Being a Malibu local, we don't have many choices when it comes to dining out especially for a hometown cozy breakfast. By appearance, you'd think this Cafe encompasses just that... the ambiance is there for a know-your-name sort of greeting, the menu is laid out to host a variety of meal... More

We stopped off for breakfast. Restaurant is situated in a nice shopping area with parking available. Seated quickly but after that service was terrible. Server disappeared for ages and when he did return it was hard to catch him. Food was ok but not good enough to make me want to return.

Spent the day on the beach in Malibu and grabbed some dinner here on the way back to LA on PCH. It is in a nice shopping center area. Casual, tasty food and the service was really good and the people were friendly.

We stopped here for breakfast on our way out of town. Menu had a nice selection of breakfast items, coffee was good and food was good. It was good, average fare at a reasonable price. All the employees were pleasant and we left full enough to last us on our long journey north.

Great selection of breakfast items with creativity. Something for those that enjoy lighter fare as well as a good hearty breakfast. Waitress was very polite and served us very well.

Grabbed cookies here. Yum! Near the beach. Sweet time with friends. Service is wonderful. And a nice relaxing end as we traveled a scenic drive.

This used to be a place we went to all the time with the kids. After a long time away, for no particular reason we went back and saw that the menu has changed a great deal. There didn't seem to be as much to choose from as in the past but nonetheless there were nice choices. We went midweek,... More

I would give it a 3.5, but that was not an option. One of our staples as far back as I can remember (mid 90s?) It is a homey place with a diverse menu having something for everyone. Comfort foods like a decent mac N cheese, good Caesar salad, burgers. It is like going home or being in a dark,... More
