First time here. We came on a Sunday and luckily there was plenty of FREE parking available in the small parking lot and no wait in the restaurant. I'm pretty sure that's because we arrived at 1:30pm and it closes at 2:30pm... worked for me though!! I ordered the Full size portion of the California Orange Salad. First they brought... More

Normally I would go for an egg breakfast, this time I was enticed by their French toast. The French toast is dipped in a batter and then rolled in cornflakes. It's a unique flavor sensation. Crunchy on the outside from the cornflakes. Topped with lots of fresh berries and homemade whipped cream. Rich delicious coffee as well. This is a... More

Marston's is a gem of Pasadena. Well known for its brunches, but equally delicious for lunch. Individually owned, the moset popular dish is the California Salad with their own San Pascual dressing and freshly made cheese popovers. Everything has a home town feel and is very fresh.There are daily specials and stand-bye favorites. The interior is small and cozy with... More

If it is a nice day... dine on the porch. The food is very fresh and fun. The place seems very upbeat and in tune with the times. The converted home gives it a bit of old California vibe, but that is where the past ends.

Highly recommended and well worth the wait for a table. Have been here before and this time settled for the very generous salmon eggs benedict.

Was afraid it wouldn't live up to the hype but had a delicious breakfast. We had huevos rancheros and powerhouse omelette (but spied the french toast at the next table and will have that next time). Coffee was good, too!

Had a lovely Sunday morning breakfast while visiting during Heritage Weekend in November. It was a pleasant and easy walk from the Marriott where we stayed. We were able to dine on the front porch and both my husband and I enjoyed our meals. The coffee was outstanding! Our service was just fine, we never felt neglected or ignored by... More

Charming bungalow-like building houses THE best breakfast spot in Pasadena! Fabulous food - their French toast is out of this world and the California special is amazing. Be warned! The servings are BIG. We could have shared just one plate - but what fun is that?? Service was equally good - happy, efficient, welcoming, and helpful.

Marston's is off the beaten track, set in a house on a busy street. They offering seating on the front porch or inside. They have a great menu with varied selections and good size portions. Prices range in the above $10 range for breakfast like the eggs benedict that I had for just over $14. They offered the standard eggs... More

I've been here before. Staff is nice, food is good (although not heart-healthy) and fairly reasonable prices.

Thank Joel B
