After a long drive, we settled into a dinner at Marmalade with other family. The food was good, the service good, the atmosphere was comfortable and inviting. We expected perhaps a bit of "stuffiness" in Malibu, but were treated very well even in our traveling...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

We stopped here for lunch on our way up the PCH. The food was very good. Our waitress was friendly and gave us great service. We did end up buying cookies to bring home. The coconut macaroons are my favorite.

I have mixed feeling about this particular Marmalade Cafe. Being a Malibu local, we don't have many choices when it comes to dining out especially for a hometown cozy breakfast. By appearance, you'd think this Cafe encompasses just that... the ambiance is there for a...More

Yes, as far as I can recall you can modify a few dishes. When I got a burger I asked it plain; cheese and beef only and they were ok with it ;) I'm not aware of any gluten free menus tho.
