For over two decades, Martha’s has been home to beautiful bridal lunches, adorable baby showers, and simple lunches with friends. Known for its plentiful menu of house- made breads, dressings, and more, Martha’s is a popular spot when you are looking for a delectable lunch in a welcoming atmosphere.

Room would be the perfect way to continue her love of catering while expanding upon the already amazing foundation of this local treasure. Embracing Martha’s name, location, and even recipes, Villers became the new owner in 2016. Since then, she has worked to blend the beloved concepts of Martha’s Tea Room with her own ideas, while continuing to provide the people of Ocean Springs the lunches that they love.
Everything at Martha’s is made
