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...

This was our first time visiting this establishment. My wife and I, with 4 children. We had heard about the "marche" breakfast and decided to give it a try. The restaurant is actually quite large and decorated in an eclectic fashion, almost too cluttery feel. Lots of Nick knacks, signs, cars and trucks, hunting, fishing, antique canadiana heritage sort of... More

Went for lunch today, for the first time, at mark's finer diner and was truly disappointed. Service was very slow, about an hour and we had a 3 year old with us. We had to ask for a kids menu after scouring the menu for the kids selections. We were not offered a refill on coffee while we waited for... More

As first timers, we were pleasantly surprised. The omelettes and eggs benedict are made fresh by Mark. Waffles were light and fluffy. Bacon and sausage were full flavoured. Fresh ingredients and funky atmosphere made for a great start to the day.

Just so you are aware. Came for lunch with my young family this morning and really regret it. We paid and I tipped 15% because the waitresses seemed nice but: My omelet looked (and tasted) like leather. The potatoes were old and cold and they didn't bring out new bacon the entire time we were there. The 'chef' who I... More

I am a single diner who went over to Marks from the Best Western for a take-out....not a fan of eating alone in a restaurant. There were two surprises on the menu...a jerk soup special..and a chili. So to start...both were outstanding...and I have had both in many places in the world, including the Caribbean. Loved them. But the reason... More

My friend and I go for breakfast all the time and decided to go to marks finer diner for a change. We had been here a few times previously and had some minor issues but not enough to not come back. The restaurant opened at 8 and that's when we arrived. We were told that the marche would be open... More
