    • Hi David, That’s a great question. While in Maine – Marty was approached with an opportunity that would take him back to his home state of California and near his tight-knit family (his parents and sister live in Truckee). – That’s the short answer to your question – read-on for the complete answer. A novice restaurant Group out of Roseville (California) was in the planning stages of opening a new restaurant and learned of Marty through a mutual connection which led to Marty joining the group as both partner and Executive Chef. Marty is not only a talented Chef – but also has extensive experience in kitchen design and opening restaurants. The Roseville restaurant – Cascades was a grand-slam sold-out hit right out of the starting gate – and closed after 3 months. Unfortunately, the Restaurant Group (NOT Marty) did not have the experience of properly managing resources and staying out of the fray where Cristal champagne cannibalizes the business. I hope that answers your question – the LeBlanc’s from New England still consider Marty as part of the family and have been to the Cafe in Truckee.
      Thank you,

  1. I’m a longtime employee in the historic downtown area and have never had good experiences ordering breakfast or lunch to go. I got so tired of pricy subpar food. Recently I ordered some breakfast to go from Marty’s and all I can say is AMAZING. Price was right, food was fresh and i got two nicely packedged bowls of fresh fruit and yogurt with granola. Enough for two days. Staff was so friendly and welcoming. I will definitely be a repeat costumer.

    • Hi Morgan, Thank you for sharing your experience – Marty’s prices and generous portions are a great value in our expensive economy – were glad you enjoyed your breakfast.

      Thank you,

    • Hi Enas & Hannah, Marty’s Cafe Hoagie selection was inspired by Marty’s sister Lisa & her children Katie & Sam (the Mohun family of Truckee) – who shared their favorite hoagie fixins for Marty’s Cafe menu. Marty’s Cafe is blessed with an exceptional staff – I will pass along your praise.

      Thank you,

  5. Hey Marty, is there someway I could get the menu for the Fall Salad? We were in town last year and I just loved it but when I tried to make it, it didn’t come out anywhere near as good as yours.
