Cheery mini-chain specializing in gourmet comfort food, and eclectic take-out. – In Short
It's almost like sitting in someone's kitchen--chaotic, communal and appetite-stimulating. Homey dried flowers and hanging baskets feel familiar but the ingredients from this pantry are impressively foreign. Stuffed cases of gourmet goods line the casual-chic dining room, with sturdy wood tables and paneled windows. A vast sandwich selection like the Brie with balsamic and mixed greens are popular items, as are salads like the tangy green apple, chicken and yogurt. Take-out dinners feature chicken entrees with sides of grilled vegetables and mashed potatoes.
Great Breakfast/Brunch in the 'Bu – This place has a killer breakfast/brunch menu. Incredible pancakes, a great lox platter, pretty standard breakfast fare, but a really cool atmosphere and a great place to get it. A lot of people head to Coogie's for the breakfast thru lunch scene, probably mostly in hopes of catching a celeb or two, but I like Marmalade a lot better. Much more laid-back, a lot less pretentious and the servers are infinitely nicers than those at Coogies. Definitely worth a try.
Average food, busy restaurant – The food was average, service ok and the prices were high. Location in Malibu tough to get around with the construction -
Over rated. – Interesting ambience but food was terribly salty. Enough to hospitalize anyone with high bld. pressure. Wait for food was long, to say the least. If you want a salad in Malibu, I prefer Coogie's. Wouldn't go back.
Salads are Fresh, Consistantly Good, Great Value – Tremendous following. Salads worth the drive to Malibu. Great place to "people watch". Try their Cobb Salad.. (suggest asking them to mix it for you)
