Loved it all. Martin is a gem. We had a breakfast buffet and his pancakes are to die for as are home-made cinnamon babka and chocolate babka!

Usually a wait for a table, but we were lucky enough to get a table for two quickly. Loved my arugula and tomato eggs benedict and husband loved the fact that they had yummy corned beef hash. Friendly waitstaff. Fun place!

Not quite sure why there are crowds lined up here on a Sunday morning as the food was just average and the service was rushed and non-attentive. Standard diner fare is proferred here…my order of scrambled eggs arrived overdone with a side of dry ham and toast with lumps of hard butter applied which resulted in the burnt toast arriving in pieces. The hash browns were room temp and not well done as requested. Coffee was fair, but not attended with any refills - come on - it's Sunday morning! My son's omelette arrived sans the ham he ordered and with the same burnt (his was black) toast. The kitchen clearly is doing volume and not love. Our somewhat surly waitress capped off our experience - we will not return!

Martin's is one of those places that people gravitate to because it's local and it's a Berkshires institution. But the packaged jellies and syrup make you think more of Denny's than a down-home café. The daily specials reflect the season but there is little else to indicate that Martin's is a local eatery. Breakfast, which is served all day, is the big draw at Martin's but their home fries leave much to be desired and the omelets are mediocre at best. There is a salsa omelet on the menu which used to have a nice blend of jack cheese and salsa. Lately, it seems like all it has is a dab of watery salsa. Recent leek and potato soup had a single chunk of potato in a broth base with what seemed like a tablespoon of half and half. The tables are too close together, the noise level is too high and the food is nothing great. We have always had pleasant and reliable service.

After seeing a ton of positive reviews, I made a point of having breakfast here and was disappointed. I had french toast, and it was fine, but that's all it was. Nothing special, no choice of breads, not even real maple syrup. It was cheap, which is always appreciated, but I definitely wouldn't go out of my way to find this place.
