I had an absolutely fantastic breakfast here. The food was excellent, and so was the service. The ambiance was quite good as well. Very enjoyable.

I have visited this restaurant many times for breakfast and thoroughly enjoy it. A diverse menu. Large portions. Excellent service. Try the upside down pineapple pancake but plan to share . The Gilsons scramble is solid go to special. Also love the salmon scramble. Enjoy!

I went there with a groupon voucher. The cocktails were very well made and came in a large 16 0z. glass. The grilled artichoke starter was great. The flat iron steak was cooked perfectly and the portion was more than generous. They have a happy hour and early bird special that looked very interesting. There are also several wine promotions...

Though I don't prefer chain restaurants, I have a special fondness for this location of the Marmalade Cafe. I have been there many times over the last 15 years, but hadn't been there lately. This particular day, I was driving home from Santa Monica and wanted something sweet. I pulled into the Malibu Country Mart to go to the Marmalade... More

Not much to say besides: a typical chain restaurant that offers good food and service, but nothing special
