The signage is bad so you might miss it even if you are looking for it. Try and meet Marmalade. She is such a delight. Although breakfast was average, there is an adventure to be had in exploring all the little goodies they have on...sale. Service was good. Maybe next time we have lunch and see how that goes....More

They were obviously busy but woefully understaffed.....poor service and really average/mediocre food. I really can't understand the rave reviews

Amazing service. Delicious food. Wonderful ambience. Meal was fully and freshly prepared. Restaurant was packed which added a newly found relief of a slowly coming back to normal environment.

We booked a lunch as part of our anniversary weekend in Darling and we weren't disappointed. The food was lovely, the atmosphere was great and the staff were welcoming.

Did a road trip to Langebaan and stopped at this wonderful establishment for lunch. Food as always was fresh, friendly staff and owner and we could sit there with my friend's dog. So wonderful to know this place has survived.

This is such an incredible little find. I'm not even an omelette fan but this was by far the best I've ever had.....probably the best brekkie I've ever had. Definitely worth a stop for that omelette

We have visited the Marmalade Cat in Darling before, but having visited Langebaan the previous night, we couldn't miss the opportunity to visit the restaurant again. The Karoo lamb pie was truly homemade and delicious. And to see the namesake cat soaking up the warmth...was just the cherry in the top!More

Efficient and helpful staff, with a big menu to choose from. Food is tase and well presented. Seating inside or outside courtyard. Lots of VERY amusing and interesting "things" on sale. Definitely a place to visit when in Darling.

The Marmalade Cat is much more than just a place to eat. Lots of interesting things to browse through and look at while you are waiting for your food. And Marmalade herself is usually there as well to say hi. The food is fresh, well...prepared and reasonably priced. We all enjoyed the experience immensely.More
