Usually go here at least a couple of times for breakfast during our two weeks at Plum Island during the summer. Very good food and service.

Mad Marthas has a funky artsy atmosphere and is a super friendly spot to stop. The menu seems as free spirited as the place itself. The small, humble, roadside building looks a little tumble down which lends itself well to the inviting casual fun interior....More

Fantastic breakfast fare and friendly staff. It's a small locale, so it fills up fast. We waited about 20 minutes for a party of four midmorning on Sunday. Definitely worth it!

If you're in the mood for breakfast, go here. The menu is insane. The specials are even better. The portions are pretty big and comes out quick. Most of the time you have to wait for a table because it's a tiny place, but it's...More

The Portuguese French toast and the Carmelized French toast are killer! If you are a fan of hash, the homemade corned beef hash is awesome! We've had just about everything on the menu. You can't go wrong at Mad Martha's.
