The breakfast was good and prices were reasonable. They are cash only however, so make sure you don't just have plastic.

Not in a hurry to return. Food was just ok. Restaurant is clean with diner feel. Strong point I'd the bakery's sweet bread.

Had late breakfast on a Fri with the family, was very busy. It is a very small place, had a bench outside for waiting, or standing. People very friendly and working hard to keep waits short, those called were offered seats at counter if they wanted to not wait for a table. And everybody said yes . We had 5... More

Fine it behind Dairy Queen going east on Main street, park in back and have a seat.

Our first morning in Falmouth, MA we stopped in Mary Ellen's for breakfast on the recommendation of our hotel desk clerk. A little crowded and noisy but the food was good and the waitress extremely pleasant and attentive. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
