We are veteran devotees of the full English afternoon tea ritual and seek it out wherever we travel. We were delighted to come across Molly's in Falmouth and all the more so because this was no pretense of a cup of tea and a dull scone but the real thing, with three-layer cakestand and a wide choice of leaf teas....

We happened to go here on a cloudy day when every restaurant in town was crowded and there were three tables left here. We saw there was only one waitress and we had a lot to talk about so the wait wasn't that bad. But when we got the food it was a disappointment-- my Greek salad was small with... More

Great place for lunch while in Falmouth....sandwiches are their specialty! The food was good but keep in mind they do not offer dinner.

Granddaughter and I decided to visit tea rooms wherever we travel. We found Molly,s and loved it. The atmosphere was quiet and a bit eclectic. One day we stopped twice to try a different tea. We went every day and sampled lots of tea. Customer service was great. Server informed us about various teas and the different hourglass timers to... More

After a walk and back to Highfield Hall to see the Kanreki art exhibit, we were delighted to find Molly's Tea Room for afternoon tea. We both chose the Queen Catherine blend and a mixed berry scone to share which comes with clotted cream and jam of your choosing. The best part-- the scone was served warm enhancing its flavors...

I stopped into this tearoom while exploring the shopping area of Falmouth, MA and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the tea service. I had an afternoon tea of small sandwiches (excellent egg salad, tuna salad, cucumber, and lobster salad?), sweets, and a scone. The sweets were nice, especially the spice cake mini cupcake. What to come for, though,... More

Who doesn't love a tea room with charm and friendly staff? While they didn't have as large a selection of tea as I'd like, they had many nice offerings. The food and desserts are terrific but I'd skip the hot chocolate - it wasn't a favorite. This is a great little place to pass time with friends, family or even... More

Have been coming to Falmouth for 40 years but never here before (what a mistake). It's only open mid-day (11-4) but quiet, roomy and comfy. Prices are very reasonable considering the quality of food and service. Many teas, deserts and sandwiches and the "chowda" was great. Can't recommend enough. 4 adluts and 2 lil kids and everyone was very pleased.

Thank Steve S
