Very long wait, especially on the weekends, as there are only a few tables, over an hour wait.

  Another place for an outstanding, fresh, best on the North Shore, breakfast is the Depot Diner, 23 Enon Street, Beverly

Outstanding breakfast menu,food is fresh and absolutely consistently outstanding, family owned, you will have to wait but the establishment is much bigger and can serve people quicker.

Very easy to get to, if your son is coming from Boston and you are coming from Maine. Just off Route 128.

p.s. Another problem on the weekend for Mad Martha's is the parking! Parking is not a problem at The Depot Diner. Cannot go wrong with either place. Good Luck and enjoy your day!!

p.s.s. Wait at both places should not be that bad because of the time you are arriving, rush is usually over by 10:30

Yes, likely an hour wait unless you get there before 8:30 AM each day

Small seating capacity and popular on the Island

Enjoy the nice weather and bring a sweater for evenings

I typically go there "off season", but I would expect 45 min-1 hr

I live on the Island and have never attempted a weekend as line is usually out the door. I have been going Friday mornings and never waited. I always comment to my wife when we drive by on the weekends and see all the people that it is definitely worth the wait. As far as how long the wait is I can't comment but I think an hour is not out of the question.

Good luck.
