So much more than what I thought it was - for being located in a side/strip mall, the diner was actually quite homey. The owners and staff are real people too - loved the interaction with everybody. Had my usual eggs over easy on rye, sausage and home fries with lots of coffee. Meal was so good, I read the... More

I was not super impressed with the breakfast. It was crowded ( seemed to be locals) ( not a lot of choices in Ellsworth Maine in the winter) I had chipped beef with toast and it came with biscuits, even though I specifically requested toast. It was good, biscuits were tasty. Home fries were a mix of hot and cold... More

Even though we may only go here once a year, we always feel like long time regulars when we're there. The wait staff greet us warmly, and Martha, herself, often does too. The food is reasonably priced. The food is delicious. The service is great - efficient, fast and friendly. It's the epitome of a great roadside diner! Be sure... More

I love a good omelette, and Martha's certainly makes them. We have had breakfast there twice, and both experiences were great. Food prepared quickly and perfectly (pancakes and bacon for my husband, omelette for me). Very competent and friendly servers that respond immediately to requests for refills, etc. We will definitely go back!

We had breakfast here for several days. The coffee was very good. My husband had French toast which he said was delicious. I have an egg white omelette with spinach and cheese. They make their own bread which was outstanding.

Excellent breakfast place. Have gone there for 20+ years, never a bad meal. Service fast & good humored; food superior. Sometime a long line - try to get there before 9:00 on the weekend. Once you are seated coffee is in front of you and your order is taken. Martha & Peter (her son?) always on duty - running register,... More

Good food, good service and good prices. They have this ham that is fantastic and also offer homemade wheat bread at an additional $ of course.

Quality ingredients and well prepared. They have booths and tables and a lunch counter. Everything was filled so we ate at the counter. The interaction with the staff was like I had been there before--so friendly. Many locals and almost everyone was called by name. I would eat there again in a second--Really impressed with the food and staff! They... More
