Marcy's Diner

47 Oak St., Portland, ME - (207) 774-9713
Decor in this 1930s-era hash house includes Harley-Davidson posters and pictures of the Three Stooges; the well-worn counter is occupied mostly by a blue-collar crowd drinking coffee from thick mugs and plowing into hearty plates of corned beef hash, pancakes, and chili cheese omelets. They also offer fresh-baked muffins every morning.

We couldn't help but notice the beautiful muffins behind the counter. When we selected the raspberry muffin, our waitress offered to split them in half and grill them. How could we say no to that?

Potatoes are boiled and cut every day before getting sizzled on the griddle in a bath of butter and margarine to become crisp/creamy home fries.

Chocolate pie: Each slice is one-quarter of a whole pie.

The $4.25 price of an omelet includes any two ingredients of your choice. Our choice, seen here in close-up, is chili and cheese. A perfect combination.

A view of the counter from one of Marcy's booths. This was late in the morning, between breakfast and lunch.

Originally known as Lou's when it opened in the 1930s, this place then became Mike's; and now it is Marcy's. It's our top choice for a big, delicious, and inexpensive breakfast in Portland.
