Nice setting for French cuisine; not as formal and with elements of Balinese design. I do like the high tables and chairs although they might not be as well-liked by other diners. Oh well, it's hard to satisfy everyone!
Dishes recommended were the Southern French-style flaky pizza pissaladiere of Provence, the Alsatian tarte flambee made a la minute, and locally-sourced prawns marinated with French-Spanish influence and garlic, and more!
I got this plate of scrambled eggs with some crusty sourdough bread, and it was delicious. I devoured it all quickly, and started to wonder what their lunch and dinner was like, especially since they seemed to have a decent selection of cheese and booze. I'll have to come back soon to find out.
We finished with a simple chocolate cake. Cake was dense, soft and not overly sweet. Loved it for the simplicity and cream.
The place feels warm and festive, hitting the smart/casual sweet spot. You'll spot families and friends tearing through plates against a backdrop of white washed walls and stunning Parisian tiled floors.
The space is gorgeous, we loved the vibe of the restaurant. That said, there are no signatures on the menu at this point we are compelled to return for.
Without a doubt, this Parisian café is gaining attention fairly quickly for its charming ambience and we would definitely recommend this brunch spot to our friends.
Merci Marcel is slightly off the radar for now, but with its lovely ambience and promising food, it should get some attention fairly soon.
Overall, we thought that it is a pleasant place with friendly people.
Merci Marcel is a spot we would definitely find ourselves bringing our friends along for casual brunches in the future.
