A word from Marche du Sud
Marché du Sud is inspired by markets of the Mediterranean region and their gastronomic specialties.

We are a gourmet French market, restaurant, bakery, and wine bar all under one roof.

Toward the front of Marché du Sud are homemade croissants, breads, pastries and tarts.

As you move along, our ceiling height wooden shelves are filled by gourmet olives, couscous, condiments, and soups you name it, we have it.

Toward the back cases of cheeses and charcuterie responsible for our nine variations of French pizzas.

  • Try the Pizza

    Their pizza is so delicious - a thin, crispy crust that's light and packed with flavor. Despite not being your traditional Italian pizza (i.e. doesn't have tomato sauce), their French version is extremely delicious with a delightful balance of flavors. Surprisingly, the cheese isn't overwhelming which is what caught me off guard the most. I would highly recommend it! On service, at first the staff was very attentive but once we got our food and the crowd picked up (we were originally one of two tables and by time our food came out they were at maybe 25% capacity), we didn't get any attention even for refills on water, coffee or tea. That was my only criticism to an otherwise lovely brunch.

    Brunch was on their quaint patio / greenhouse. It's definitely a neighborhood joint. It's good food but not something one would travel for. Friends though the egg dishes were small and three of six were still hungry after brunch.

    The food and the service was great, but the couple who sat on their phones while their young children literally played basketball was unacceptable. I think the servers should have said something to the parents. That ruined my dining experience. That being said, I will return, as the foie gras pizza was divine!!!

  • Reliable 'bouffe' @ fair prices...
    MorganVIP
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    'Bouffe' being slang for relatively straightforward food, bistro fare in this case...Comfortable, with an enclosed outdoor dining area, as well as a small vitrine, next to the exposed country-esque kitchen, that sells any number of cheeses, (including Petites Suisses!) along with French alimentari, sea salts, mustards &c., so all in all, a very serviceable joint...Oh, and one night a week they do couscous which very few restaurants in town offer...

    At brunch the other day a server delivered plates to the wrong tables. Between us diners we figured out who was supposed to get what, although some items had to be remade (not everyone inventories their omelet contents before digging in). The mix-up was unfortunate but it happens. If any of the three servers (who all seemed to be working the same tables) made a genuine apology it would have been forgotten. Not apologizing was the least of it, though. Unfortunately the servers didn't seem to realize that the bathrooms are right around the corner, maybe six feet away, from the pass-through kitchen window where they congregated to discuss how stupid their patrons were for accepting the wrong plates in the first place.

    The food was marvelous! we had a cheese plate (could select the types) and it was a business lunch, so we needed to eat within an hour. Ea of us ordered something different, from hamburger to omlette, pizza and salad! My omlette was perfect and the side of fries was wonderful. Great service and as we were there at 1 pm, there were few other customers. we all said we'd be back!

    A great place to have some drinks and delicious light fare. The "French" pizza was light and very tasty, and for salad lovers the beet salad was layered beets, goat cheese and lettuce, very delicious. My friends enjoyed the white sangria.

  • Mother's Day visit
    ASometimesReviewer
    Dined on 5/11/2014
    We came here for Mother's Day (chosen primarily for geographic reasons). There was a special brunch menu for the occasion. The food was good, particularly the "French" dishes, like the tartes; but the salads and risottos seemed skimpy and not quite special enough for the occasion. It would have been nice to have a bread basket as a normal feature; although I imagine they would have supplied one if asked. Good espresso. Service was attentive and efficient. A pretty place, attractive, not overly fancy or fussy, but nice; it was what we were expecting and wanted. The back garden looked lovely. A friendly place.

    Dined on 5/3/2014
    Everything you read in other reviews about the service here is true -- i.e. It is not stellar. The wait staff is nice, just not super attentive, so if you are a Type A with limited time, you may not be happy. For our crowd of 14, it would have been nice to have coffee served more frequently, and the pepper mill appear quicker, but the trade off was really superior food. Try the omelettes, burger, or the French pizza. Don't miss the raisin croissant. On balance, being able to get a brunch reservation for 14 people at a place like this made for a great family reunion. We recommend this spot,and will return to try lunch or dinner!

    It was my wife's birthday, and she wanted to have a group of her closest friends with her for brunch. This place easily accommodated for our party of 13 in the back, garden room for a Sunday 2pm reservation. The atmosphere was very relaxed, the service was extremely accommodating, and the food just made it so special for everyone there. We all enjoyed our time.

    I met a good friend for lunch and we sat in the back atrium area. Very cute ambiance, rustic, "country French" decor. It was mostly empty (we arrived at 1 p.m.), but even with that, the waiter wasn't too attentive. And it looked like we were the only table he had. Go figure... We split a Salade Marché du Sud with goat cheese fritters (superb!), figs, candied walnuts, julienne of romaine, shaved organic apple, lavender honey vinaigrette. Delish, even though the salad leaves were wilted and sad. We had French pizzas, chicken and vegetarian, both quite delicious! Overall, it was a very good dining experience and I would definitely return.

    We had a large group so we were needier than others. They kept messing up my poor friend Tanya's order, forgetting her cappuccino, giving her a mimosa instead and then forgetting what she ordered. Maybe they don't like pretty girls. Lol! Service took a while but again we had a large group and we were all recovering from the previous evening so I felt like it was the longest brunch ever. Food was tasty and fresh juice was appreciated.

    Not only did we have to beg for menus at our large group but it felt as if they were doing us a favor to bring us the food. The waiter never asked if anyone wanted another drink. When we asked to see dessert menus they only gave 3 for a party of 10. Total attitude with a cherry on top. Portions are very small - and while the food is fine would never go there again - this was not the first time that I have been there,

    I had visited there a few times, but the service was never good. This time, worse! Maybe it was because we sat at the patio, but someone should have checked us and others time to time. We had a hard time to order and get our food. After we ate our appetizers and waited for pizze for a while, our waitress asked us if we ate appetizers. Didn't she know what we were served? After we waited 15 minutes for our coffee, cheese and desert, no one seemed to bring anything. We could check with our waitress if she was around, but she or any other people came to patio for 15 minutes. We canceled our dessert and left.
