“Tiny place”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Very good breakfast place in Portland's Arts District. Tiny diner, lines out the door, and semi long wait time. Once you sit, service is friendly and efficient. Decent muffins, good omelets, good crispy shredded hash browns. Only blemish was the coffee...a tad weak. All in all, once you sit, you'll enjoy it.

“Best Breakfast Restaurant In Downtown Maine”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

The homestyle breakfast at Marcy's was fabulous. Very Small Diner with small booths or barstool sitting at the counter. We had a party of 6 and so no place to all sit together but the food made up for it. The Hobo Hashbrowns are to die for. Lines were out the door waiting for a seat when we left. Definitely worth the wait.

“Basic old fashion diner”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

I was looking for just a basic breakfast place like you see every where. Not so easy to find in Portland. A local directed us to Marcy's. The results were great, great food, very fair prices, excellent staff. Nothing fancy, but Marcy's is fun n' funky. They have a good sized menu too. If you want a good stick to your ribs breakfast I'd check out Marcy's. Although I didn't get a muffin their in-house baked good look great. Loved the waitress with all the tattoos too.

“Excellent omelet”
Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

Very good breakfast place. I had the omelet special which was roasted red peppers, black olives and spinach. I chose feta as my cheese. It was served with hash browns and toast. The omelet was fluffy and delicious. Very well done. The toast was nothing special but I enjoyed the potatoes. Coffee was ok. Service was excellent. I'd go back for sure. Nice find in downtown Portland.

“Superb friendly service, very good unpretentious breakfast”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Marcy's is an interesting mix of classic, no-frills diner food, and inventive takes on classics. I was thrilled to see Taylor ham on the menu. The staff was just great - very friendly, and made you feel right at home. The menu is huge for such a small place. I will definitely return. The only complaint is about the coffee, which was pretty bad. Maybe an off morning for the coffee machine.
