Southern Comfort

Marimont Cafe

623 W. 38th, 458-5944

Daily, 11am-8pm

Voted best dependable comfort food in the 1996 Chronicle Critic's Poll, the Marimont is the kind of place you went to as a kid with your aging aunt who insisted on eating only soft, easily digestible food. Since 1976, this cafeteria-style restaurant has been serving real homestyle food from the office-like restaurant on 38th Street. Most of us have seen it, but what most people don't know is that the women in the Marimont kitchen make all their food from scratch -- even the mayonnaise. Every day they offer a variety of meats, vegetables, and sides, plus a full salad bar and home-baked pies.
