A diamond in the rough – Martins was established by Firmino Martins in 1970, formerly known as “Steurhof café”, a local Convenience store. The business successor, John Martins followed in his father’s footsteps.  He decided to continue his father’s legacy by opening a bakery division in 1983. John left his day job as manager of the Bank of Lisbon to follow his passion and now works with his wife Teresa.

The European-style bakery brings to mind a contemporary deli and coffee shop that is filled with the fresh aroma of baked goods to entice the senses. Martins does was it does best-bakes non-commercial, home made breads with no preservatives and using traditional techniques such as their Sourdough.
