Great spot in Malibu for breakfast. I had the French toast with fruit and it was perfect. Service very good Cups were always full and service friendly- even when we walked in the very second it opened :)

Our family of four stopped here on our way up the PCH for breakfast, and are we glad we did! Food was great, the setting was charming, and the service was warm and friendly, just what you want in a breakfast joint. Easy to find with lots of parking, and just off the PCH in Malibu, it was a perfect... More

During our drive up the Pacific Coast Highway we stopped for breakfast. Marmalade Cafe is an amazing quaint little restaurant with the largest choice of breakfasts!! We'd return in a heartbeat!

Visited here several times for breakfast, customer service was excellent, Classic Eggs Benedict and French toast was sublime, tentative staff, and I will definitely go back.

Stopped here for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. Had the prime rib au jus sandwich with atomic horseradish - ask for the sauce on the side, it's HOT! The fresh fruit juices are delicious - I had the coconut watermelon mint fresca, which is very refreshing on a hot day.

This is my favorite breakfast spot in Malibu. It's located in the Country Mart, but feels like you're dining in a friend's kitchen.

We felt blessed that we found this little cafe! We wanted to overlook the Pacific for breakfast but the $10 parking fee didn't seem worth it. Just up the road in a strip mall, we usually avoid strip malls but we were hungry and we wanted to surf. The staff was wonderful! My daughter had a one year old in... More

Service is very good. Coffee very poor. Scrambled eggs with salmon not bad. Corned beef hash the worst. I'd give them another chance, but only after trying the other places around there.

We stopped at the Marmalade Cafe for breakfast on our way to Zuma Beach. Great choice of breakfast, excellent quality! The cappuchino was on Italian standard (and we travel Italy a lot)! Service very attentive. We realized that lots of locals frequent this place, always a good sign. Some nice shopping adjacent to the cafe. Will visit again!

Thank Dirk747
