A must visit spot favored by locals. Cheeky deco (mostly Lucile Ball, Carol Burnett, Betty Boop, etc but once you meet Martha you will understand). Great food, variety and prices.

Great food. Crab Benedict was fabulous but plan to share. Service can be spotty (unless you sit to the right and get served by Mariellen). Not sure what the big deal is with the homemade bread. Martha will stop by to say hello. Really IS the place to go for breakast in Ellsworth.

We were immediately greeted and seated with a smile! Our server went over some of their best sellers and had great recommendations. The food was hot and fresh and served in a timely manner. The philly steak wrap was cheesy and delicious! The Italian wrap is filled to the brim with fresh deli sliced meat, crisp veggies, and a yummy... More

When I eat out for breakfast I like my eggs poached. It's a treat because I can't seem to do them that way very well at home. Martha's cook not only does terrific poached eggs - it's all great! The toast, the home fries, the sausage. The coffee. This is a great diner and it's right in the center of... More

Absolutely love this place for breakfast. Any of their eggs benedict will knock your socks off! I always get the veggie Benedict, but tried the smoked salmon one, my new favorite! Also the corned beef hash is fantastic!

Went out for breakfast with my family. The service was poor, our waitress was disinterested and unhelpful. The food was adequate, but pricey. The restaurant itself is very well decorated in the fun old fashioned diner style, but with a lot of small tables crammed into the small space it was noisy and a bit claustrophobic.

Martha's is tucked away in a corner of a shopping plaza, so it tends to be frequented by people who know about it. Superb breakfasts and delightful friendly service. The only reason I'm giving it 4 rather than 5 stars is that there's very little space between tables, so it's not ideal for larger parties. Of course, the fact that... More
