Redlands area is nearly devoid of decent breakfast spots,in my opinion, this is the only place to go. Wish they served half order of Eggs Benedict .

Great little Cozy Restaurant. My group participated in the tea. Nice little bit size sandwiches, tasty scones, the black tea was brewed to long and was really strong.

Good food....good service.

     

Janelle Vendeville said on Jul 23, 2017

We had a pretty awesome experience at Martha Green's for breakfast. My 4 year old daughter asked the waitress for something that wasn't on the menu before I could stop her (pancakes with whipped cream and sprinkles) and she was like, "yeah, I think we can make that happen" ... and they did. They brought her a cup full of adorable star sprinkles from the bakery up front and my daughter was in sparkle sprinkle heaven. LOL It was pretty awesome. They were also pretty tolerant of us too - we had a large group and there were 4 kids under 6 going kind of crazy in our party. LOL

Wonderful cozy atmosphere. Very friendly. Great food and bakery!

     

Stephanie Kennedy said on Jul 13, 2017

Mmmm...........Asian wrap is my favorite!!

     

Deborah said on Jul 11, 2017

They have several vegan options. Both the hot and cold sandwiches are to die for. They are also using tofu so you can ask for substitutes!! They have the BEST sourdough around and made in house. Don't get me started on the bakery!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

     

Amanda James said on Jul 3, 2017

First of all the breakfast burritos are amazingly good!!! I also ordered a cake from the display, a white chocolate with vanilla and raspberries!!! So, we try it that night for my b-day!!! Disappointed due to the raspberries had gone bad!!! Soo I called the next day and told them the cake was bad. The lady manager took care of me!!! She gave me a fresh one right out of the case!!! Thank you again!!! I will be coming back for more cakes and good breakfast!!!😊

This place was amazing! Staff was fast and friendly. Don't expect to eat and leave, you're going to want to relax and read a newspaper. Check out the scenery! The red room with all the kitchen stuff reminds me of the farm!

I had Jr's Chicken Sandwich & Sweet Potato fries, very good. My husband ordered the biscuit's and gravy, best I've ever had from any restaurant. The best. Can't wait to go again. And was that homemade jam???

     

Dennis Wenzel said on Nov 16, 2015

We came to town from San Diego for a recital at Memorial Chapel Nov 15th. We are happy we tried your restaurant. The Eggs Benedict was probably the finest I have ever had. The amount of lemon juice was perfect. Thank you for stopping by our table to greet us. We enjoyed exchanging words with the lady who dines by the fireplace. Also, the young "busboy" was very attentive. Many thanks!

     

Charlene Wrighton said on Jun 20, 2015

Grateful for the secret Martha Green's patron who bought ‪cookies‬ for our kids. WOWZA! Praised us for being "organized & said our kids were extremely well behaved." Best compliment EVER! ‪

     

Rebekah said on Oct 31, 2012

My husband and I go on dates here because it is too expensive to bring all our kids though I know they would like it. We come for breakfast and their french toast is the best I have ever had. I love the little dish it comes in and it is so gooey and delicious. You would think this is what I ordered but it wasn't. My hub did, every darn time. I was so disappointed that I got an egg omelet and potatoes which were still so good but after eating a quarter of his french toast, I knew I should have gotten that instead. I do this every time we go. I wonder when I will learn. Service is always sweet, kind and fast. These ladies really treat you well.
Love the fact that you can grab your dessert from the bakery on your way out.

     

Shawna Elizabeth Festa said on Sep 7, 2012

Martha greens!!! The Sinful French Toast is the BEST french toast ever!

     

Kelly said on Dec 28, 2011

This is my favorite restaurant in Redlands. Every time I go, I always get something that I love.

We usually order breakfast, sandwiches or salads. I was happy with my omelet that I got there the last time I visited the Eating Room. My favorite item is their buffalo chicken wrap. I dip it in blu cheese which is to die for.

They used to give you a basket of breads and breadsticks, which they don't do anymore. That is OK, because their food makes up for it. They also have a bakery that you MUST visit afterwards. I got the snicker doodle and lemon bar. Both were fresh, homemade, and delicious.

The only thing they need to get a handle on is the customer traffic coming into the restaurant. The line to put your name is combined with people paying their bill. I would recommend putting a hostess near the front so things can be a little easier, especially when you are with a large group.

     

Marti Christiansen said on Sep 23, 2011

Martha, I wanted to let you know how incredible our lunch was today at The The-Eating Room! We took Jon's two cousin's out and they were very impressed! We girls had your Asian Chicken Wraps and a Buffalo Wrap, Wyatt had a burger, and Jon loved your Son-of-a-Chicken sandwich. We also had sides of your broccoli salad. It is never disappointing to treat a guest to a meal at your place! I didn't want to end the day without letting you know :)

     

Bryan said on Sep 13, 2011

This is my favorite breakfast place due to the Elvis french toast. Thick pieces of french toast slathered with peanut butter and topped with a heaping amount of bananas. I always leave feeling like "the king!"

     

Jordan said on Nov 30, 2010

Had an amazing brunch at the eating room today!!! Mexican skillet was so good! With sour dough bread and strawberry jam. Oh and amazing fresh orange juice. Loved it!

     

Karin said on Nov 19, 2010

Yum! Martha greens cooking class!! Omg! Myra and I got great recipes..!! Thxs martha!! Xxxoooo!

     

Rachel said on Nov 2, 2010

My boyfriend and I went here for breakfast, forgetting--until we saw the voluminous swell of customers upon entering the front doors--that it was Mother's Day! Having arrived with less-than-ravenous appetites, we decided to brave the crowds. We were pleased to be called to our table within minutes, and our orders taken not long after that. I ordered the Sinful French Toast and he the Mexi-Grill Omelet.

It made an impression, that twist on french toast, so allow me to describe: it arrived in a long porcelain dish, baked like a bread pudding, the top a golden-brown crust. On the side: a cup of butter and a cup of classic maple syrup. And, have I ever tasted something so delicious for breakfast? Perhaps, but those memories were far away when I placed a piping hot spoonful of that custard-crust, smothered in butter and maple syrup, into my mouth. You may suspect me verging on hyperbole, but...I suspect you that you just haven't tried this dish yet. Superb!

     

Phil said on Aug 4, 2010

Holy heaven! This place makes it worth the drive to the 909. A Must Stop/Must Eat Place on your way to Big Bear/Snow Summit, as it's only open until 3 pm The breakfast is traditional American but it's awfully fresh and delish. I had the vegetable skillet with mushrooms, onion, tomato, topped with asparagus and Hollandaise Sauce and it was super tasty. After breakfast, I skeedaddled to the bakery a few steps away and had a raspberry/vanilla cupcake. Yeah, that's right. I still had room. Thank goodness I was there for a meeting and had to go quickly because it would have been easy to buy half the display.

     

Alan said on Apr 3, 2010

OUR FAVORITE PLACE! Our favorite place for eggs Benedict, chocolate eclairs (my wife's fave), and chocolate cake (also my wife's fave)!

     

Dana said on Dec 31, 2009

My husband and I made our first trip to the eating room yesterday after hearing rave reviews for months from neighbors. We could not have been happier with the service, the ambiance, or the food. Martha Green came to our table and was talking to us, which really made the trip for me.
The breakfast was great! My husband got eggs and home fries with wheat toast and I had a frosted chocolate chip scone. We agreed the homemade bread was the best we've had. I'm going back today to pick up some pastries and a loaf of bread.
I never order coffee unless a place has flavored creamers, which they did, so I was overjoyed. I've already told my best friend and sister-in-law that I'm taking them soon.

     

Laura said on Oct 28, 2009

Yea! Opening November 6 for Friday night dinners. Finally another option for downtown Redlands. They are offering the full menu, breakfast and a family special. We are really excited that a affordable place is available.

     

Loyal Customer said on May 7, 2009

Gee, Meredith & Marisa, I don't know what was going on the last time you were at the Eating Room, but your YELP review read as if you might have "issues" or illusions about the restaurant business in general... or maybe an out-of -towner that acts as though she needs her passport stamped when she's ventured out past the O.C.! Some of your remarks are offensive to those of us loyal customers who have enjoyed Dough'lectibles since the early nineties! I have been pleased with the Eating Room since it opened in 2001. Sure, the wait is a risk between 11am and 1pm. EVERY restaurant has had a problem in the kitchen... the average wait for a meal is 20 minutes. Not bad for made to order breakfast and lunch. Not happy with your sandwich? Did you even point that out to your server? One thing the Eating Room staff are great about is trying to make it right. You think it's pricey? Just like every other business that has had to pass on the cost of fuel, this restaurant (just like most restaurants) has been forced to raise prices. Go to Denny's or IHOP if you want (not so) cheap generic breakfast. All of the Eating Room breads come straight from Dough'lectibles bakery. Soups made daily, NOT from a can. You like a certain one of their soups? Request that it be made Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday, and their cook might just do it! Martha has actually served me a wonderful soup she was testing for a cooking class at Trinity Church. They have a set soup for Thursday (Lemon Basil with chicken and wild rice, my fave) and Friday (of course it's Clam Chowder!). Their Rustic Tea by reservation is no High Tea, but the food is better and more scrumptious than any tea I've been to in all of Southern California, and even Victoria or London! Tea in a ceramic mug tastes the same as a china cup. Hey Meredith, ever seen a Rose Bowl float? A guy who builds those, created that "orange" tree. Ever thought of asking for a seat where you can stuff your face without looking at the tree? Singing for tips??? give me a break! We all crowd into the Eating Room, yes some of us daily, for the pure pleasure of being treated like family and watching the characters (staff and customers alike)! For any restaurant visit, know peak hours to avoid; let staff know (politely) when you are unhappy with food OR service; be realistic: I was in the Eating Room on a day that the power went out on the entire block.
An obnoxious man was loudly complaining about how long it was taking for the food to come out, as we all sat in the dark. Many of us were giggling, when we heard the cooks were using flashlights to read the orders and prepare the food! Did we get up and leave? NO. Did they close the place? NO, they just made do... and many of us keep coming back, again and again.

UNBELIVABLE!!!
The girl at the front counter, I belive she is the manager (laura) is great.She runs this place like it is her own.She remembers your name even after only have been there one time, she is just a great asset to have greeting you. Food is just great,service is great these servers treat you like a guest in there home. The bakery is to die for they have a couple of girls in there that are mother daughter team who are the nicest caring thoughtful counter help I have encountered in a long time.The whole establishment is just over the top.

     

Liz said on Feb 2, 2009

I recommend the hot chocolate. It tastes like melted chocolate bars topped with real whipped cream & chocolate shavings. It's out of this world.

     

Margarita said on Feb 1, 2009

The decor is warm and cozy. Their breakfast menu is outstanding, the Muselic,(their own version) is so tasty and filling, I was not hungry for the rest of the day. A great place to start your day.
