The bright, sunny cafe on Club Street (the original outlet is in Tiong Bahru) sourced their ingredients from some pretty good brand-name places, e.g. La Cour d’Orgeres artisanal jam and Le Chocolat des Francais pure cocoa.
We stopped by for brunch the other weekend:
Croque Marcel - organic Bayonne ham, French Morbier cheese and organic fried egg
Benedict Eggs - organic Bayonne ham, Portobello mushroom and Hollandaise sauce.
I was told (much later) by friends that Merci Marcel’s claim-to-fame is their Ravioles de Royans, tastiest little pasta parcels ever, filled with Tête de Moine cheese. Must try that the next time.
