“love this quaint little place”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

My husband and I LOVE to go to Martha's - we go to Traverse City often as we have a condo vacation rental there and always make the little drive up to Martha's - the food is great, I especially love the chicken salad and the deserts are as wonderful as they look. I highly recommend this to all my guests.

“A Nearly Perfect Breakfast”
Reviewed 10 December 2013

If having breakfast out were just about the food, Martha's would be just another very good place for breakfast on the Leelanau Peninsula. But it's not and Martha is a wonderful, quaint restaurant staffed by friendly, knowledgeable people. We didn't get to meet Martha, but the much appreciated Samantha (see earlier reviews of Martha's) was helpful and fun. Our breakfasts, Eggs St. Tropez and Huevos Rancheros were good, but a little bland - almost as if the cook was afraid to commit to a bold, distinctive flavor. In contrast, the side orders of bacon pigtails, seasoned with brown sugar and chili, was an absolute delight and maybe the best strips of bacon we've ever had. So breakfast wasn't perfect, but it was close enough that we hope to be back many times.

“Quaint Great Food”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

Our friend made reservations for us for a girls weekend visit. It is very small so it feels very warm and cozy like you are at someone's house for dinner. There were 6 of us for dinner. They had very unique menu with some great standards. There was a dinner special for $25 dollars that include a soup or salad, your choice between two dinner entres, and a dessert .. it was lovely. My friends who do red meat got the steak dinner .. and just ranted and raved that it was the best steak ever .. I had a chicken dinner that was very good, another had a pork chop dinner in some special sauce .. that one got passed around .. and then a duck casserole thing that got passed around too .. It was snowing like crazy outside, we were inside this small but elegantly furnished dinning room with great smells, good food, and music in background .. what a lovely night we had.. defintely worth the visit ...

“Superb at all Breakfast Meals”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

We only ate at Martha’s for breakfast and it was excellent all times. Many of their dishes were very interesting and all were well-prepared. Something as simple as steel cut oatmeal was superb. Their bread was also very good and even though not on the menu they had gluten-free bread which was available for my wife. In speaking with the hostess we learned that the owner (Martha) ran the cafeteria at a local school and she was known to be such a good chef that she was set up in the restaurant business by her many fans. They are also open for lunch and dinner. The dinner menu looked particularly interesting.
