Main Street Falmouth Welcomes Eat Your Heart Out!
The long-awaited opening of Eat Your Heart Out Catering’s Cafe & Gourmet Market has finally arrived. Chef/Owner Sean Dailey gave an exclusive sneak peek to Falmouth Visitor before he and his wife, Laila Mustafa Dailey, open the doors to the public on Tuesday, September 10 at 11 am. Located at 587 Main Street (on the corner of Nye Road, next to Johnson Electric Supply) EYHO fans can now enjoy Sean’s award-winning cuisine on the go – at the office, on the beach, or better yet, as a healthy and delicious alternative to cooking dinner on a school night after a busy day. And for the cult following of Sean’s first local venture, Dailey’s Roast Beef, rest assured, he hasn’t forgotten his roots…
A Dream Realized
Before opening his Davis Straits catering company eighteen years ago, Sean and his brother, Brian, operated Dailey’s Roast Beef, just a few steps from where the EYHO Cafe stands today. The no-frills menu was especially popular with the late night crowd that spilled in on summer nights after last call at the Casino and the Leeside seeking Dailey’s “Famous” Roast Beef. Slow-cooked to perfection, on a perfectly toasted bun, with minimal add-ons so as not to upstage the main ingredient. Fast-forward to the present day, and we’re all a *little* older, seeking healthier options with some decadent treats here and there for good measure. Thanks to Eat Your Heart Out, you don’t have to sacrifice flavor or break the bank trying to make better choices. Ready for something new, Falmouth? The wait is finally over…
Eat Your Heart Out caters to those on the go, whether you’re on vacation or on your way to work, so forget the drive thru and indulge your inner foodie. Don’t settle for just a sandwich – try the Vietnamese-French Bahn Mi Baguette in four varieties, build your own with favorite cold cuts (gluten-free bread for just seventy-five cents more), or choose from Cafe creations like blackened salmon, buttermilk chicken, and seafood salad. On the lighter side are cold bowls, like Thai, Greek, Forbidden Vegan, and Mojo Salmon, along with a wide array of soups and salads.
Cafe Manager Megan Greene is the chalkboard artist behind the aesthetically-pleasing and expansive menu. The decor is all Sean’s doing, with special touches like mixing beater lighting fixtures.
The coffee station features charming creamer pots created by Kim Sheerin of The Barn Pottery in Pocasset.
While primarily geared as a quick stop for pick-ups, seating is available in the cheerful interior, which boasts a pleasing palette of muted, nautical tones.
There’s also a counter that faces Main Street, where you can wait for your order or peruse the hot meals case and grab something for dinner on your way out.
And for the diehard Dailey’s fans who’ve been haunting Sean to Bring Back the Roast Beef (author included), your prayers have been answered. Although he wasn’t planning to include it in the new menu, he couldn’t disappoint his following, so he purchased a griddle specifically to toast the coveted onion roll. That’s right people. Dailey Days are here again…
As a longtime business owner and Falmouth resident, Sean is committed to giving back to the community. Prior to giving us a tour, he stopped by Falmouth Service Center and donated $2,000 worth of frozen meat, dairy items, and dry goods. Let’s return the favor by supporting this fantastic new addition to Main Street. It’s time to Eat Your Heart Out, Falmouth!
Eat Your Heart Out Cafe and Gourmet Market, 587 Main Street, Falmouth, is open Monday through Saturday, 11 am to 7 pm. Closed Sundays. For more information visit Eat Your Heart Out Catering or call 508-388-7911.
