People from all over Maine (and New Hampshire) come to Marta's for Old World quality croissants, which Marta bakes fresh every morning (except Mondays) and serves in the little cafe attached to her home in a charming orchard in North Waterford, Maine. My wife and daughters and I have been coming here for years, usually arriving at 8 a.m. sharp and taking a table while Marta brews a cup of rich, European-style coffee, and tells us which of the items on her list — croissants, cinnamon rolls, coffee- and pound-cakes, and various pies and tarts — have been baked in the last few hours. Marta has two or three baker's racks on rollers that she wheels into the cafe with the latest items from her new red-enamel and steel oven. I see from below that there are two comments that wonder why Marta's isn't friendlier. It's a one-woman operation, and Marta, who learned her baking from her mother in her native Czechoslovakia, is a perfectionist who has her hands full. But she has a heart of gold and loves to talk about her wares. Worth a visit to sit down and have a cup of coffee and some baked goods and then to take a package or two of them home. Highly, highly recommended.
