Can't get enough of Martha's!

My favorite diner food to date! I'm always looking for a good diner and the food here is the best. Love it. Bring cash though, no cards ;) And they close at 2pm.

Great food, busy atmosphere and you'll be back. They focus on what tastes good and don't charge an arm and a leg for it. Staff has a bizarre sense of humor you have to "adjust" to, but it's worth the effort.

This place is so welcoming and pleasant -like eating at Mom's - that is if your Mom is an amazingly good comfort food cook. The staff is beyond friendly; they sincerely are happy to see you. The atmosphere is American diner with all the essentials : signs, tables, bakery display case and most of all sublime simple food ! Just... More

Great breakfast, large portions, good food, very fast and great service. One of the two best breakfast spots in Ellsworth....will definitely return to try lunch and something more for breakfast. The blueberry pancakes were very good.

Recommended as one of the hot spots to eat in and around the Ellsworth area so we thought we give it a try. Place was crowded. It was a decent breakfast but not over the top.

This is one of those glorious local places with a great kitchen! Has that 50's diner vibe with lots of "Lucy" and "Betty Boop" photos and paraphernalia. I splurged on the "short stack" (two HUGE buttermilk pancakes) made with bananas - they charge extra for real maple syrup,but hey, it's well worth the 75 cents! Fresh banana slices were in... More

This place is the real deal. Delicious, freshly made food that will make you smile. The staff is so capable and friendly. I had the omelette with feta cheese - so good. I have been there for lunch too and my family who lives in Ellsworth has tried just about everything on the menu and just rave about the food.... More
