Café Marguerite is gone!

Out with the old and in with the new it is said around the new year. A casualty of 2007 was Café Marguerite, which closed it’s doors at the end of the year after a ten year run. Café Marguerite was a very decent and lively place and had very good / exceptional food for the cost. Additionally all of my friends liked oogling the petite brunette waitress while they had their espresso fix.

We are sad to see Café Marguerite leave the building, but there is a hopeful note from Andre and Marguerite on the door that says they will be relocating somewhere around here soon and to watch for the news in the Argonaut.

What is up for the space in 2008? Looks like the “Canali Café” … maybe it will be a bagel and pasta joint and bar?

  • We need a deli. A real NY-style deli. One that has greasy egg sandwiches in the morning and mayo-laden cold-cut sandwiches in the afternoon. A surly deli counter guy would just be too much to ask for – but one can dream.

    Do we have one that I don’t know about? I know we have some fancy gourmet establishments that consider themselves to be delis. We used to have that deli on Pacific near the 20’s, and that was a pretty good NY-type deli.

  • I am from Nashville and visit the area about once a month. Cafe Marguerite was a regular spot for me 2 or more times a visit for a wonderful relaxing dinner while reading through the next days work projects. Of course with an ample supply of red wine.

    I stopped by as ususal the evening of Jan 16 with a cigar and reading in hand to find the sign in the window. My heart sank, and I settled for the below average italian joint on the next block.

    Devastated.

  • YOU KNOW WHAT WE DON’T NEED IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, IS A GREASY NY DELI WITH A SURLY NEW YORK ASSHOLE TAKING YOUR ORDER. IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT HERE, GO BACK!!!
    LIKE “FAMILY GUY” SAID: I THINK I SPEAK FOR EVERYONE WHEN I SAY THAT EVERYONE FROM NEW YORK CAN JUST FORNICATE THEMSELVES TO DEATH!!!

  • Marguerite had fantastic, rich coffee and the most exquisite seafood crepes. But, even though I’m a 12 year local only a couple blocks away, I stopped going there because the owner (the wife, not the husband) was so purposefully and exceedingly rude to me and my visiting family.
    Hate to see the dishes go, but won’t weep over the loss of her!

  • Service and food was just so-so at Marquerite, hoping this new place is good. I just love being able to walk to dinner, but I’m not wowed by any of the nearby restaurants. I’m hoping for good seafood with decent salads and veges.
