Brunch Quest: Marigold Kitchen

Off Duty

Bright, creative and cozy are words I would use to describe this little cafe in Madison, WI. Marigold Kitchen is located by the Capitol and offers a wide range of healthy menu options serving breakfast, brunch and lunch. It even was voted best breakfast by the community for Madison Magazine in 2015. I ordered a chorizo omelette which had chorizo sausage, sweet corn relish, cheddar cheese and cilantro. The omelette had just the right amount of spicy making it enjoyable but not eye-watering. On the side, it came with one piece of wheat toast and potatoes. The potatoes were delicious, but not my favorite of the breakfast potatoes I have tried from my brunch adventures.


The shining star of this meal for me though was the hazelnut almond mocha. This is probably one of my favorite coffee drinks I have ever consumed (and I drink a lot of coffee). The consistency was creamy, but the balance between the chocolate and nuttiness was perfect. I will absolutely be returning for this drink alone. Not to mention they have a white lavender mocha on the menu, which I intend to try.


Overall, I definitely recommend checking out this spot if you are a coffee lover. The cost is slightly high, but not unbearable. I can’t wait to try some of the other items on the menu as well. Happy brunching!
