Staff was slow in getting the food out and was disorganized. They didn't know what they had/or didn't have in stock. Staff touched the food before they served it.

Orders were taken promptly and the beverages and food served in good time. Since it was not too busy (we went in after 1:00) we were able to sit and visit after our... More

The waitress was very friendly and smiled a lot. Service was good and very attentive. I ordered the julienne salad... More

Good breakfast. Omelette made to order. Good selection of breakfast foods and treats. Waitresses still coming to table for coffee and to see if other needs. Owner there making omelettes. Guests made own toast.

We've had the Marche Breakfast a few times and each time we've been very impressed at how attentive the chef is. He definitely makes the experience the best it can be by being as accommodating as he can be. The food is good. My only reason for giving only 4 stars is due to some of the waitresses being slow...
