Marigold Kitchen - Restaurant Review

Marigold Kitchen is one of my new favorite restaurants.   I discovered it last summer, located downtown.  Their description of "creative healthy food prepared by friendly folk" is dead on!  The one draw back is it's always packed, but I have managed to find a seat for me and the girls each time.

Recently Bebe B and I went there for a special mommy/ daughter date before seeing a kid's play at the overture center.  We had an amazing time.  I also loved (the times we visited in the summer and fall) when we sat at the little cafe area outside.  They carry Organic Valley milk boxes for kids and have a lot of kid-friendly food and menu items.  On this last visit it was Saturday during brunch hours so Bebe B got the kid's homemade pancake and fresh fruit.  I got an amazing salad.  The prices are fair for the quality of food you are getting (They even make their jam from scratch).  The portions are good sized so sometimes we have shared a meal (like an amazing bowl of butternut squash soup last November).  There menu changes with the season and they have daily specials (which they list on their website).

 The vibe and the decor in the restaurant are hip yet relaxing.  It's a fun mix of weathered wood floors and bright colored art on the walls.  Each of our visits the staff was friendly, helpful and so kind to my kids.  They have high chairs there are well.  They have nice/ clean restrooms with plenty of room to change a diaper if need be. Marigold Kitchen gets three thumbs up (one regular thumb, one kid thumb and one bebe thumb) from us!
