Martha's Tea Room
You are in for a treat at Martha's Tea Room. This Victorian home offers homemade breads and desserts and has many daily specials served fresh in an English tearoom atmosphere. The service is outstanding.
Locals know it's secret but no one should miss out on the great food and atmosphere at Martha's Tea room. No detail is overlooked and the staff is Southern Hospitality at it's best! Everyone I have taken has loved it. Between the quanit decor, hospitality, homebaked breads (on premises) and Neno's Chicken Salad and the awesome White Chocolate Bread Pudding it's a feast for all the senses!
Martha's Tea Room has the best food in town. The food is homemade, delicious and you will crave it again and again. Luckily the hurricane spared this quaint little restaurant and to my delight she is opening a new restaurant this Spring. Definitely when visiting Ocean Springs I stop in to enjoy a bite! Definitely not PRICEY for the quality. It is homemade after all!
I have introduced several friends to this great place.

The bread is wonderful. The food is also very good. I've been to Martha's several times. We drive from Mobile, AL because it is such a treat. The atmosphere is so relaxed. My daughter and I plan to go there tomorrow.
The little shops around there are also fun to visit. I especially like the Two Dogs Dancing Shop and the old time pharmacy next door.
Driving along the Gulf Coast this summer (2004), a friend and I had lunch at Martha's Tea Room in Ocean Springs. Having eaten there previously, he recommended the stop. The Tea Room has an atmosphere reminiscent of a Southern grandmother - welcomingly warm and smelling of fresh baked bread and comfort food. The restaurant Victorian in style, appointed with flowered wallpaper, doilies for beverages, and traditional placesettings. The meal began with warm bread and home-brewed Iced Tea, offered sweetened and unsweetened. Both were above par, with the Iced Tea exactly as it should be in the South. As an appetizer, the cup of seafood gumbo was very good, though I prefer the more rustic and spicy gumbos of South Louisiana (for blunt terminology, Cajun) to the "Creole" version offered by Martha's, which you will find in old New Orleans restaurants, Mississippi, and other Gulf Coastal states; however, my friend's preference for gumbo is exactly the opposite and he was more than pleased. NOTE: If you are in New Orleans try the gumbo at K-Paul's (Cajun) and then at Galatoire's (Creole) to taste the difference. For the main course, I ordered Shrimp Alfredo and my friend had Martha's combination of four salads, including shrimp salad, pasta salad, and chicken salad (his favorite). The Alfredo could have used a bit more seasoning, but it was fine overall. The salad that accompanied the meal was very fresh tasting and the blue cheese dressing was rich and flavorful. For dessert, the Key Lime pie did not have the overly sweet crust that ruins most tart pies. Instead, a thin layer of graham cracker crust added the right amount of sweetness to accentuate the acidity of the lime, which with the cup of good coffee completed a very satisfying meal. The service was excellent, both friendly and attentive. Four stars: very good, though nothing spectacular, and the prices were reasonable.
