Best of Boston

2005 Best Brunch, Berkshires

Martin’s Restaurant

Regulars know to get to Martin’s before noon, as this bustling brunch spot, with its no-frills menu and attitude-free staff, always fills up fast. Guests doodle with crayons on paper place mats—the best are hung on the bulletin boards—as they wait for custom omelets with homemade hash browns or French toast topped with fresh fruit. And just so lazy latecomers don’t miss out, the restaurant serves brunch until 3 p.m.
