Our Story

Café Chez Marie was established January 24, 2000 by owner-operators Marie and Steve Saltzman and has been continuously serving great food in a charming environment to its wonderful, diversified and loyal clientele.

Nestled in a uniquely charming 1935 French Normandy Cottage officially registered as Los Angeles City Cultural Historical Monument #319, and located along the world famous Route 66, Café Chez Marie offers a variety of grand dining options whether on its enchanted outdoor garden patio courtyard with a stone wishing well, in a cozy downstairs seating room with beautiful beamed ceilings and wood burning fireplace or perched in its upstairs ”Family Dining Room” hideaway.

We have created the first and only French Moroccan American café restaurant in the United States which is renowned for serving its “Cuisine Traditionelle Française – Marocaine – Americaine” – traditional French, Moroccan and American comfort food.

Our café restaurant has served more than a half-million customers since first opening its doors over a decade ago — including neighborhood residents, local business workers and, visitors from across the City, throughout the United States and around the world — with gracious service, outstanding cuisine and its most beautiful and charming setting.

We are particularly proud to be in the true sense of the French Café Restaurant tradition, a home-away-from-home neighborhood restaurant to all of Los Angeles’ Westside.

Café Chez Marie also caters to a diversified clientele of businesses executives, employees and their customers from the entertainment industry, investment banking, professional services and academia including the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA).

To all of our very special patrons – past, present & future – thank you and Bon Appetit!
