It was a nice place at first impression. The security guy was very nice and friendly. However, the attitude of the staffs had turned me down. It was not crowded that day and when I offered to change my table, they look unhappy. Then, we...had to wait more than 30 minutes for our food and drinksMore

Horrible ! For all that money, they cannot even serve a proper egg! You’ve so many better options in the town. Don’t go to this useless place. Frustrating !

We went for breakfast as a family. Food is outstanding. The space is small and they have a great reputation so booking is a must to avoid disappointment. Not the best for smaller children though.

Had a nice late breaky here with the family. The food was really good and like the new venue in Thao Dien. Definitely book as it is quite a small space.

Overall good experience: the booking process is smooth, the staff is super friendly, the venue is - as always with Marcel - cute with each detail thought through and the food was good. As they’ve just opened the new location, there was some shortage of...sourdough bread and the food was long to be served. Two points I’m convinced Café Marcel team will know how to re-adjust!More

The good, the bad and the extremely ugly. This is how I would describe this place. I went in here for breakfast, yes for this is a breakfast, brunch or lunch place only and are shut in the evenings. My standard measurement of a good...breakfast are the coffee and the scrambled eggs. On both visits, I ordered a Vietnamese iced black coffee, no major complaints here although the coffee wasn't strong enough, just adequate. Food was a different matter entirely matter for it was excellent. The scrambled eggs on both occasions were delicious, the the muffins were also very good. Onto the "bad & ugly". I entered the restaurant and there were 2 other single people occupying 4 seater tables. I tested myself at another 4-seater as the 2 seaters were effectively bar stools that looked uncomfortable. Okay, the waitress came over to tell me I had to move to a bar stool if the restaurant was filled up. My lucky day, she chose me to move and not the other 2 people who were also singular customers. Next, she hurriedly left the menu and rushed to open the door for other customers. She took took orders from the other customers, served food but never returned to ask for my food order. I literally, sat for 40 minutes before she came over as she wanted me to move to the bar stools, then realised at the same time that she hadn't taken my order. I then realised that I was asked to move tables because I was the only singular non-white customer this morning. It left me wondering if she didn't take my food order for the same reason. :( This is not acceptable and I apologetically blew my top off at the waitress. Only saving grace is that the manager offered not to charge me for the meal, a gesture that I politely declined.More

We had a lovely window and that’s all there is to say. Service was slow, inattentive and perhaps not that well trained. The food was the worst part of our brunch. We had the shakshuka; beside the eggs it had a weird taste that made...the gall rise and made us want to vomit. Return? Not really.More

I have been a couple of time to Cafe Marcel, and being honest I love the food! However all the times I have been there there is a really bad service (the waiters are all super nice) and they definitely have to wake up!! 1)...the cutlery the bring it always super late! 5 minutes After they serve your food.. that’s really annoying (when you are so hungry and the only thing you want to do is eat.. it seems like a year) 2) Every time I ask for NOT SUGAR drink they always bring it to me sugary.. So please BE MORE REACTIVE! This place could be great!More

I have been here twice and both time have been a pleasure. I had the croque marcel dish and the mama berry. I loved the bread with the cheese on it and the dip on the side was really lovely. It is somewhat higher priced...but if you come here you quickly understand why. Thumbs upMore
