This is among our 'go to' breakfast spots in Falmouth. It isn't fancy and it isn't visible from the street but it's good. The sweet bread for toast, the eggs, bacon and has browns are good. Oh, did I mention the wait staff? They're great.

We stopped at Mary Ellen's Portuguese Bakery for breakfast on our way out of town. It's easy to find, on Main Street with side entrance behind Dairy Queen. Plenty of parking. Breakfast was good. I had eggs and sausage with a Portuguese (English) muffin grilled nicely. My wife had the French toast made with Portuguese bread. Coffee was good. Service... More

The small bakery is one of the best ever. The pumpkin muffin may be the best ever eaten. Also known for their breakfasts. They are open at 5:00AM

After searching for a solid early morning breakfast spot in Falmouth, Mary Ellen’s Portuguese Bakery had all of the requirements with amazing sounding food, opening very early and close to where we were staying. The location is a little obscured by the Dairy Queen which Mary Ellen’s shares the building. The restaurant space is an average size with a small... More

We were very hungry and Mary Ellen's hit the spot. Really liked the Portuguese bread - poached egg was done just right. Good prices and plenty of choices.

This is a cash only dinner-bakery a bit off the tourist beat. Real people and really good food. What we ordered was excellent and the waitress was very nice and efficient. Lots of unusual dishes, but we did not try them. The french toast was great as were the pastries. This is not a fancy place--no designer coffees, etc.

My family and I decided to come here for brunch. I ordered the 2 eggs scrambled, with grilled home fries and corned beef hash. I also ordered a lemon danish. After a reasonable wait, our meals came. The scrambled eggs were a large portion and were nice and fluffy. The corned beef was well prepared and very flavorful. The home... More

It's a small place, but had a great breakfast. The breads were outrageous! We went on a Friday morning and we were seated immediately. Appears to be a destination on Sunday morning lol
