“Breakfast done right”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

Good grub on the cheap. Perhaps I should say high quality eats on a budget. Friendly staff as well. Only downfall is that they only accept cash.

“Great Breakfast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Headed out of Bar Harbor VERY early on a Saturday morning, we were hunting for a place to have breakfast. We wanted good coffee, and a hearty breakfast for the long trip home. The unassuming sign on the road pointed to a small corner of a strip mall, but there were lots of cars parked out front, so we took a chance.
What a great choice! The coffee was fabulous, the prices were very reasonable, and the home made wheat toast (small extra charge) that came with our omelets and home fries was AMAZING!
We love diners, and the atmosphere was the best of that genre: friendly, efficient, no-nonsense wait staff, quick service, and cooks that were singing, joking and laughing, and having fun despite the fact that it was 7:00 am on a Saturday.
SO glad we stumbled upon Martha's, and we will absolutely go back the next time we are in the area.

“Best. Crab. Benedict. Ever.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

We stopped on our way out of town, and had breakfast. Every other seat seemed to be filled by a local. The waitress recommended the crab Benedict, and it was beyond belief! One of the best breakfasts I've ever had! It was expensive, but very much worth it. Lots of kitsch on the walls and shelves, which were fun and interesting. Don't go there for the glamorous decor....there isn't any.

“Always a good meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

Their omelets are very good. I have had sandwiches and burgers and salad's here. I like the atmosphere and that Martha herself is frequently there and always friendly. Music playing. Sometimes a little loud but some old favorites.
