Had the blood orange mimosa and my wife the peach. That’s a real mimosa!! We were seated immediately (Wednesday afternoon) . Try the savory crepes and vegan sausage. Worth every bite!!!! Out of the way and not on the NashVegas strip. Enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere here.

I'm obsessed with this place. The mimosas, the crepes, the omelette.... it's all so good. Expect to wait a bit on the weekends, but it's totally worth it.

Marche is known for their high-end, local-centric brunch foods. It has a very inviting vibe with large windows and an awesome staff. Fine dining in the early afternoon may seem a bit intimidating, but Marche makes it feel like home.

Really fabulous brunch - one of Nashville's more trendy spots at the moment. I had polenta stuffed with herbed ricotta and a Virgin Bloody Mary both of which were spectacular. Coffee was strong and delicious and the service was fast. They also sell cookbooks and food items.

Popular place for weekend brunch as well as evening dinners. Artisan food, homemade bread, shifting menu. Show up early on the weekends or you will have to wait for a table.

A favorite brunch and lunch Restaurant of mine. The same owners as Margot, my favorite French restaurant right around the corner. Located in East Nashville, close to The Harmony House.

Marche is probably the classiest brunch place in Nashville. French themed with high quality menu items and a gorgeous eatery, plus an upper class mini grocery makes it perfect for a ladies breakfast. I always go on weekdays when I can, because weekends are absolutely insane. Tons of natural light, plus it’s located by the cool Five Points area in hip East Nashville. This is a bit pricey if you’re watching your wallet, so maybe add it to your special occasion list?

Great cafe in the heart of Nashville. A European eats type of cafe with the right touch of Southern cooking. Had the shrimp with grits and gravy and loved it. I almost licked the plate clean, so ...

Delicious! Hard to get in for brunch on the weekends, but it's much easier to get in for breakfast during the week.

This restaurant features locally-sourced farm-to-table cuisine with a menu that varies weekly. The service was great. The wait wasn't too bad, even in the middle of Sunday brunch, and our waitress was friendly and on top of things. The food was also very fresh- you could tell that everything was made from scratch. Although most of the dishes were great, the flavors weren't always well balanced.
I had smoked salmon crepes with Bechamel sauce and my boyfriend dined on scrambled egg hash with a side of bacon. The crepes were perfectly cooked- thin and light with just the right balance of eggy toothiness and crisp. I was underwhelmed by the hash and thought it had too much corn in it, but the bacon was fatty, crispy, chewy, and amazing.
By far the best thing we had was the peaches with ricotta and honey toast appetizer. The peaches were super fresh and sweet with just a hint of tartness, the bread wash fresh and crusty and slightly nutty, and I don't know what kind of honey they used but I was literally licking the plate to get every last bit. They sell local varieties of honey in the store, so I bought some.
Overall, it was a decent dining experience and the price was reasonable.They offer a good alternative to the heavy brunch fare that most places offer. I'll probably come again.

What a perfect place for a cool lunch in Nashville! The environment is really nice and comfortable, food is quite good and there is also the possibility of buying Nashville Bourbon chocolate (great), jam, tomato sauce and Marche t shirts and bags! Funny
