Blink and you could miss this culinary gem. This cosy little restaurant is brewing some of the best broths in Cape Town. Look for the interesting wishbone print that hangs above the entrance.

Food
Pick your poison. The signature clear bowl broth is a meal that should not be underestimated. It packs a punch that will satisfy any hunger. The julienne carrot provides crunch, the smoky paprika chorizo complements the delicately flavoured chicken, and the spring onion brings with it a light sweet light sting. Pour over the clear broth, served separately, for a perfect combination of all the flavours. Expect a culinary explosion with every spoonful.

The brown broth's amazing combination of venison, lentils, flaked almonds, zucchini and Turkish apricots is magical. The green and golden broths each boast their own unique signature flavour profiles. If you're vegan, Marrow has that covered too. The white broth is a vegetable broth base with the addition of coconut milk, miso, lemongrass, roasted aubergine, tofu, turnip strips and basil dressing. It can rival the clear broth bowl.

Unfortunately, there aren't any dessert options available.

Ambience
Marrow is small, quaint and comfortable. A simplistic trend runs through the restaurant, with furniture comprising a long wooden counter and little stools.

Service
Orders and pay at the counter and your meal is brought to you when it's ready.

Drinks
There's not a large drinks menu to choose from, but what’s on offer is definitely interesting. House-made plum shrub, aceso fire tonic health shot and pineapple shrub cordial is truly unusual and divine.

    Such a fabulous and healthy lunch spot in town. 5 different broths served either plain in a cup, or in a bowl with additional ingredients. Clear and brown are definite favourites. The homemade shrubs and cordials are refreshingly delicious. Extremely well priced and really healthy. A regular favourite.
    Marrow is the ideal city lunch spot and even thought we walked into a full Friday lunch hour, we got seats in less than 5 minutes. Fresh, flavoursome & wholesome - this is the type of lunch that won't push you into an afternoon nap! The brown broth comes with crispy almonds, venison and turkish apricots and I added extra rice balls and a refreshing plum shrub with sparkling water. Do yourself a favour and stop by for a quick work lunch. Small details in the presentation sets this apart from other drop & go lunch spots.
