“The best way to start a beach day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

Martha's....ah Martha's. I'm lucky to be a regular and live close enough to ride my bike to this spot. From the food to the view to the service, it is one great way to start any South Bay beach day.

Be prepared to wait if the sun if out, but always know you can duck inside if you don't need the vitamin D. Local tip!

The food is always good and fresh. If it's lunchtime, I go for the southwestern chicken sandwich. The piece of chicken is huge so you could share...but why? It has a spicy corn mayo sauce that you must get extra of...it is so good. Comes with fries (curly fries) but you can sub out salad. Nice...

The big get is breakfast and with any great beach community, this is fantastic cuisine!!! The pancakes are stuff of legend and the omelets are so inventive and perfect to even the picky eater.
I like the corn and halvati cheese or the jack cheese and sausage omelet. Great home fries or fruit.

Another tip, get a coffee from the take out stand on the corner while you wait. And people watch.

“Breakfast or lunch it's the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

This is a local's spot. Have been coming here for twenty years and it is always a great stop. Just a block from the strand it has it all. Casual and friendly. Hermosa Beach likes writing tickets so make sure you don't let your meter run out.

“Nice Spot for Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

There is usually a wait every morning, but they do a nice job of keeping the wait times down to a minimum. Four of us had breakfast and all meals were very good. We had omelets, french toast, a breakfast sandwich. Service was fast and friendly. Price was reasonable.

“THE corner to experience true Hermosa hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013 via mobile

We walked up to a line on a weekday morning and were greeted friendly by Anne. She asked where we would like to be seated and if she could bring coffee while we waited for two others in our party to find parking. Limited parking for cars with Meters which are patrolled by chalking tires beware as they seemed to be well enforced. Lots of bicycle racks. Daily breakfast special was strawberry pancake with fresh berries. So I had that and others had southwest omelette with side of bacon. Endless coffee refills and tasty food. Service was efficient courteous and timely. Food fresh and hot. Outdoor tables are the best!

Waitress told us that Martha's grill and Martha's corner were combined into one place which increased their table space for high demand. Place was steady for after Labor Day during the week. This place seems loved by locals who from their conversations eat here frequently. I can see and taste why! Waitress knew everyone by name. We figured by next breakfast she would know our names too. Genuine customer service.

“Great spot for brunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2013

We read good reviews about Martha's on trip advisor, and as we were staying a few blocks away, took a little walk there. We were not disappointed. Great spot to eat just off the beach, great food, not expensive, but tasty and plentiful. Our waitress Emma was very helpful. Great place to sit outside and people watch. Would highly recommend Martha's.
