We stumbled on Mary Ellen's and had a good breakfast. Not at all fancy but that's how we like it. We would go back if we were in the area again.

If you have to wait it's worth it. The small but adequately supplied Portuguese case is a delight. It's a nice diner with very helpful staff and modest prices. Now that it's off season you'll see us there quite often.

Locals go here for breakfast and lunch - need I say more? First prize goes to the caciola (Portuguese pulled pork stew) for lunch, served with rice and beans and a buttered fresh Portuguese roll. Basic and a treat for your taste buds.

Had Portuguese bread French toast yesterday and veggie plus egg white omelet today. Wonderful just right portion. Raisin toast was loaded with raisins. Got kale soup take out yesterday and warmed two bowls for lunch. Don't leave without taking a loaf of bread with you

Great food, friendly staff, and no frills. I had the french toast and it was delicious! Good spot for a quick breakfast before you get your day going.

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
