Martha's is on the formidable mission to bring healthy fast food to the notorious eating habits of Glaswegians. Armed with seasonally changing salads, soups, flatbread wraps, and hot mains, all their food – including bread and baked goods – is prepared fresh by in-house chefs using quality local suppliers. Thanks to a dedicated nutritionist, the menu features icons showing which dishes are low in badness and high in the good stuff, such as low-fat, low-cal, and 'slow burn', while a trophy symbolises the superhealthy 'hero' ingredients. There are lots of decent flavours considering the guilt-free menu and speed of delivery, from mildy spiced Moroccan lamb meatballs, served with brown rice and the ubiquitous 'Martha's slaw' (as are all the mains), to a tasty chipotle chicken wrap enhanced by smoked jalapeño dressing and avocado salsa, plus spicy soba noodles are good but shouting out for extra punch from the chilli and ginger dressing. A breakfast menu till 11am lets things slip on the healthy scale (porridge pots aside) but not the quality, with good pork products going into the more characteristically Glaswegian morning roll of bacon or (home-made) lorne sausage – available, of course, as doublers with added tattie scone. It's a pleasantly utilitarian place, mixing various tables and stool-bars, wrapped up in some slick branding and eye-catching floral flourishes, although the disposable packaging used for sit-in diners – albeit recycled and compostable – detracts a little from the quality agenda established elsewhere.
