We tried the Works French Toast and an omelette. WOW! Both were excellent. Service was good. This was the perfect stop on the way to a game at the Rose Bowl.

Love to go to Marston's for breakfast, although they are serve for both lunch and breakfast all day. Famous for their french toast, but love their SPECIAL POTATOES!!! Prefer going early to miss the crowd and get parking.

Friendly, cozy and busy restaurant with great food! We had breakfast and were fortunate to beat the queue which built up while we tucked into delicious pancakes and huevos rancheros with chili! One can sit outside or the inside - great ambience.

They have great breakfasts. There is usually a wait for a table as it is a rather small restaurant. Cn get noisy as the floors are wood. The food is a bit expensive but very tasty.
