Marta doesn't take credit cards and you will want to buy everything in the shop! Bring cash, lots of it so you can buy with abandon. Marta's creations are crazy good, decadent, exquisite. I don't think I have ever had better!

I was bicycling in the Waterford area last week and discovered Marta's Bakery. I was so glad I found it! I had an almond croissant and raspberry soda, and they were the best I have ever had! It was so pleasant to sit outside and look at the beautiful view while enjoying my wonderful treat! Marta came out to talk... More

It does not get much better than Marta's Bakery. Marta is a true artist. Her croissants (almond, raspberry, chocolate, plain and ham&cheese) are extraordinary. Am quite certain even the croissants I have eaten in Paris don't rival these. She is well known for her pies too, you can barely carry them with one hand they have so much fruit in... More

Marta's Bakery is located in the middle of nowhere! But when you get there, you are not disappointed. Marta could be transplanted to Manhattan with ease. Her baked goods are just that good. I am not even sure where to start…the croissants, pies, cookies, brownies, cakes, pecan squares, sticky buns (I could go on) are all DELICIOUS. I will elaborate... More

We found Marta's through Trip Advisor this past Sunday. It is easy to find and well worth the time. Closed on Mondays. You will recognize the taste of real ingredients. We purchased chocolate chip cookies, almond croissants, cinnamon rolls, raspberry pound cake & a frozen strawberry rhubarb pie. The croissants and rolls kept for several days and tasted just out...

We vacation on Keoka Lake in Waterford every summer. Two years ago my husband and a group of friends were in search of the best blueberry pie in Maine. They found at least 17 local entries from the greater lake region area and some from Portland too. For one week they ate/tasted blueberry pie every day. Marta's Cafe won hands... More

People from all over Maine (and New Hampshire) come to Marta's for Old World quality croissants, which Marta bakes fresh every morning (except Mondays) and serves in the little cafe attached to her home in a charming orchard in North Waterford, Maine. My wife and daughters and I have been coming here for years, usually arriving at 8 a.m. sharp... More

We found this place just terrible. Over priced and not friendly at all. We were treated poorly, like we were bothering her by coming into her shop. We bought nothing and will not return.

I'm not sure I spelled that right...but you know what I mean. This is a small bakery located at the owners home. It is a very pleasant setting. I drive 10 miles to get pastry here. My first visit was in Sept 2012 and you can only choose one date for the review. However I have been back many times.... More

The baked goods are very tasty but the atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired. Owner not the friendliest.
