If you find yourself in the mood for an authentic French café experience, you’re probably already a regular at Maison Villatte in Falmouth. The French bakery and patisserie opens at 7 AM daily and the line forms early. But if you ask anyone who’s been, they’ll agree it’s worth the wait.

The cozy atmosphere and interior design are reminiscent of a Parisian café. The menu features a delectable array of quiches, fruit tarts, cakes, croissants and baguettes. A poll of customer favorites will result in mentions of everything from the light and flaky ham and cheese croissant to the incredibly fresh baguette sandwiches, delectable Maison chocolate raspberry cake, scrumptious pains au chocolate and spinach and goat cheese quiche, bursting with flavor.

Perfection on all ends from baked breads to whimsical little desserts. There are lines, but it is worth the wait.”
