Ok, one should not get so excited over French Toast, but the breakfast we had at Marchand's was existential.
We were staying at the Vinoy on a package which included breakfast. We went into Marchand's looked at the very creative menu and decided on plain pancakes. Our wonderful waiter implored us to try their signature French Toast. He was so passionate that we went along with it.
It was the most delicious breakfast treat that I can remember having. He said it had a touch of tequila in it. Ya mon!
We're staying there again this week. I know what I'm having for breakfast.

OMG! What an amazing place, can't wait to go back.
Built in 1925 what a beautiful place. Breakfast was fantastic and the staff was super friendly. Great place for a romantic getaway.

Wow, we enjoyed fresh squeezed OJ, great coffee, and a wonderful breakfast. The food and service was spot on. I had the eggs benedict and had them add smoked salmon...OMG!

Marchand's had been moved to what used to be Fred's at the Vinoy. We were there off-season, so we got excellent service both at the bar and the tableside. The bartender's didn't know how to make a "Sea Breeze", but seemed to have scotch rocks down pretty well. The pour a hefty drink, and for the price, they should.
Dinner was OK. Not wonderful, not where you would go for your last meal, but OK. We're used to 5-star and 4-star restaurants, and this doesn't qualify. The food was pricey, well prepared, edible, and tasty, but not something you would recommend for $60/plate by the time you get some coffee and a little desert.
We had the sea bass special. Again. Good stuff, but not awe-inspiring.

We needed a bite before the long drive home and it was convenient--nice selection on menu and lovely setting. Not sure I would have dinner here with all the other choices in area but it was great for breakfast
