I had breakfast here with three friends this morning and it was amazing. They all had Eggs Benedict in various forms and I had a basic bacon and egg breakfast. The food was wonderful, the service was great and the ambiance was "antique" I would highly recommend Mar's.

Nice lunch specials so Nancy had the Roast Beef sandwich with great shaved roast beef and a nice salad. I opted for Greystone Benny with poached eggs and home fries. It used to have fruit but just an orange slice this time. I should have requested bacon well done. Service was very prompt and waitress very attentive.

Delicious breakfast and accommodated any intolerance's including dairy and wheat with no problem! We had Mexican breakfasts and coffee. Yum! Would recommend this breakfast spot.

Not a thing to complain about. Appropriate cost vs serving size. Breakfast was enjoyable and the location quite steller. Nothing to do nearby but worth the drive

Based on reviews here we ventured to Cumberland for a late breakfast. There was lots of parking nearby. Our server was, we think, the owner. Our service was not terrific with her returning to the table to confirm our order. Why not simply write it down in the first place? Our food was just a good "average"...nothing special but certainly... More

We've been looking forward to eating here and finally made it for lunch. Cute place with friendly service but we found the food uninspired. Soggy "yam coins" and too much condiments on the sandwiches. Also the restaurant smelled a bit musty. Not sure we will return.

I was looking for more of a Québécois French Onion soup. But it was short on cheese. It was still ok. The weather was raining and cold, so the soup could have been great.

Brunch was good. I had the West Coast Benny. A potato hash patty with bits of salmon in it. Rather bland. I would have preferred a regular English muffin with smoked salmon instead of ham or bacon. Great decor though.

Thank Blaine M
