Falmouth Main Street

We drove down to the Cape Cod town of Falmouth on a late Saturday afternoon in mid-July.

Main Street (Route 28) is Falmouth’s main drag, and one of the more interesting ones I’ve visited on the lower Cape.

We were two days early for this…

…so we dined at Osteria La Civetta, which was fantastic.

Falmouth’s old-school Post Office.

Like any good town on the Cape, it’s full of quaint little shops (or should I say shoppes) with names like “Bean & Cod”.

The Falmouth Public Library and its spacious front lawn.

Falmouth Jewelry Shop–without the car, this photo could’ve been taken anytime in the last few decades.

An old-looking, but not necessarily old sign at Maison Villatte, a European bakery.

Falmouth’s requisite no-frills pizza joint. Every small town has at least one…

…but do they all have a tea room?

Possibly Falmouth’s best, more elaborate and creative sign.

Loses points for having “.com” in the title; gains ’em right back for having PIES (a la mode, no less).

When spending the night in Falmouth, you can stay at this hotel with the vintage neon sign…

…or at this motel, where you can presumably get the best of both worlds identified in its name.

Spotted along the sidewalk: I like a canine-friendly town.

I suspect you can’t get good, clean boxes for free just anywhere.

A block away from Main Street sits a little park with this charmingly odd dome-shaped structure: a hidden gem in a town mostly free of cookie-cutter homogeneity.
