In 6 words or fewer: As if your Aunt could cook.
Review: Marco's cafe is a great neighborhood restaurant, which we've enjoyed for years. Located in Multnomah Village, Marco's is homey, with waitresses who feel more like a favorite aunt than a hipster.
It's bedrock is a very strong & long breakfast menu, from which you may order all day. It ranges from simple ham and eggs, to a selection of benedicts, french toast, to Andouille & Asparagus Omlette. The menu is not as adventurous as Tasty & Sons, but there's something for everyone.
Marco's lunch and dinner menus also start with basics, but offer more. It boasts a number of different salads, including this one:
- dried Bing cherries, golden beets, avocado, tomato, red onion, almonds and asiago cheese atop mixed greens, topped with citrus, shallot and asiago vinaigrette dressing.
Look for the specials for dinner. In fact. you my look for them on line here. The specials are consistently well prepared.
Bottom Line: Marco's Cafe is a well-run restaurant. I've been coming back to Marco's for 20 years for the good food, good prices, friendly staff.
