St. Martha is a fixture where she works, and is as big and important a part of the community as any of the notable figures that call this city home. Each customer is greeted with a warm smile, and St. Martha is even know to give out hugs on occasion. St. Martha gets to know each and every guest she serves, asking them about their lives, their families, and their dreams.
