We have been going to Marmalade Cat for years and it's always special! From the excellent food to the wonderful staff. A must when visiting Darling and if you are there on a Friday night, they have the best pizzas in the world!

Quaint restaurant full of seemingly unrelated knick-knacks that adds to its charm. Tasty breakfast, good coffee and friendly service.
