    So good we ate there twice. The Chicken & bacon-infused biscuits & gravy was delicious. The Azteca omelette is a creative delight. My wife had the banana loaf French toast which was dessert breakfast

    Not only an excellent brunch place, but also a damn fast one. This place has its operations down cold--a beautiful thing on a weary, rushed weekend morning. Love the Greek skillet in particular.

    In recent years, Marmalade has upped its game! Mayan Omeleta is awesome, servers keep your coffee topped up, and the french toast specials are over-the-top. Rarely wildly busy, even on weekends.

    Great food!!! The Mayan Omletta is amazing. Even 2 year olds loved it. So filling. Such an inconvenience that you can't split the bill so be prepared ahead of time and it works out!! :)

    Green omelette (artichokes, avocado, spinach) and a side of whole grain pancakes (they offer variety of whole grains to choose from). Wait time up to 30 minutes. No alcohol and no split checks.

    Mayan Omelette is fantastic. It's so good I can't resist getting it every time. If you like chorizo, beans and plantains this is must.

    Serves an always changing menu with creative variations on breakfast and brunch dishes such as French toast and eggs benedict. I've never been disappointed eating here.

    Great diner/breakfast spot with good service. Try the beignets..and maybe make sure to get a few orders. They're delicious!

    Equally adept at sweet and savory options. Be sure to ask about the specials on the chalkboards.

    You ca substitute potatoes for a selection of fresh seasonal fruit (mango, strawberry, papaya, etc) for only a dollar.

    Don't be hypnotized by the Eggs Florentine Benedict - crabcake is oversized, dry and all corn/potato filler. Stick with the huevos or breakfast quesadilla

    The harvest omelette was full of flavor! It was possibly the tastiest I've ever had.

    Bright, nicely decorated space. Attentive staff. Must try: French toast and neo classico omeletta.

    The food is very flavorful, if you have a group just bring cash. Splitting checks is kind of douchy, and slows down service.

    Pancho Villa skillet is good, Breakfast Quesadillas okay; but both VERY greasy from the almost swimming in grease.

    Disappointed. Based on the pics, I thought it would be amazing. Eggs were borderline raw and drenched in oil. Potatoes were overdone, dry, and flavorless. Won't be going back.

    Slow service from the waitress. The omelet was ok. The potatoes were not. Wrong toast. The syrupy marmalade was some kind of gross apricot spread.
