We tried this splendid place for lunch the day we walked down State Street from Campus and around the Capitol. This restaurant is just a block from the Capitol and easy to find. We selected sandwiches from the menu and were delighted with the fresh ingredients, the delicious bread and the friendly service. The atmosphere is basic, but fun and... More

Tried the scramble special, coffee with side of bacon (4 pieces $4). Food arrived cold - yet the restaurant was not busy. Got a re-do on the potatoes - they were spicy hot, not great, even when warm. Scramble - very eggy, not so much ham. Bacon side also arrived cold; they simply microwaved it, and then over-did it. You'd... More

The kiddos really enjoyed the pancakes (chocolate mint!) and the duck confit with scrambled eggs was insanely good. Everyone left with clean plates.

Meeting friends for lunch here was a treat. It was a buzzing, busy place, but the food was very good and the service was super friendly. A great value overall. It's very casual, but has some authentic charm!

We found this gem after some quick TA research. We probably picked the worst time to go, (Sunday at 11AM)! The line was out the door BUt we decided to stick it out and see what the hype was about. If you don't mind being elbow to elbow, you won't be disappointed! The food was highly rated and reasonably priced.

We were looking for a place for breakfast/brunch and this place did not disappoint. Food was fabulous (I had the Chilaquiles) others in the party had the specials of the day -- all excellent! The place is busy and there isn't table service (you order at the counter). But I would definitely eat there again!

Marigold Kitchen is my favorite place to have breakfast when I'm visiting the capitol. Their yogurt and fruit or omelets are the best!

Driving through Madison for the 1st time, we were looking for a place for breakfast/brunch. I had a spinach and bacon omlette which was served with spicy potatoes and greens and it was all delicious! The kids had pancakes and bacon which they ate every bite of, and one had a cheeseburger which was also said to be delicious. A... More

Popular little bistro near the State Capitol in downtown Madison. The menu contained some creative dishes and traditional fare as well. Service and food was very good. Try this place out if you're looking for something out of the ordinary. You won't be disappointed.
