Martin's Restaurant in Rensselaer, Indiana: French Toast

Martin's Restaurant in Rensselaer, Indiana: French Toast

little Indiana and family headed to Martin’s Restaurant in Rensselaer, Indiana. We had heard that they have great breakfast–and I love eating breakfast out! Who’s with me there?

We drooled over the menu–lots of homemade goodness! I couldn’t decide what I wanted. Everything sounded so very good!

In the end? I chose Deanna’s Special Omelet: Swiss cheese, sausage, onion, and garlic with a side of hashbrowns and toast. Mmm!

Hubs got the Western Skillet. Eggs, green pepper, onions, and sausage and smooshed around to form the perfect storm of goodness (according to him).  Kid #1? He was fiending for French Toast and bacon.

Our waitress kept the coffee coming while we waited for our order. Martin’s Restaurant has the cutest mugs. Aren’t they just adorable little things?

Martin's Restaurant in Rensselaer, Indiana: Quaint and Cute!

There’s a lot of vintage tins, records, and movie posts on the walls of this Indiana mom and pop restaurant so there’s plenty to look at. But the ceiling? It’s painted red. Bright red. Is it some marketing ploy to get folks to eat more? ‘Cuz the goodness of the cooking here is enough!

When the food arrived? I don’t know who Deanna is but I’d like to shake her hand. Can you say “delicious?” Well, Kid #1 certainly said so–and we agree! There was probably a full five minutes of silence at our table.


Our bill was reasonable, the food was fantastic, and we? Left with very full bellies! If I get a chance to go back to this Indiana town for more Martin’s Restaurant goodness, I’ll take it–I’d like to give their homemade biscuits and gravy a go.
