Late lunch was a total disappointment. Hardly anyone in the cafe yet service was slow and inattentive. Fish and chips were done to a crisp (and not in a good way). Burger was overcookied, fries under. Just a really poor showing.

Chose this place initially as it had options for my fussy vegetarian fiancé during a day trip to Malibu. Other eateries didn't float our boat and were expensive such as the Farm on the pier. On entering marmalade we were greeted by a lady with...More

Marginal Cafe Marmalade is an attractive environment with friendly servers. The good news ends there. "The Big Marm" was a non descript burger with too much bun and shredded lettuce. The green tomato slice was a nice touch. Side Caesar salad was dry. Seated near...More
