I used to love this place- but recent issues have deterred me from getting my bagel fix.... Bagel made wrong past three times... and the Garden of Eatin veggie burger is now sweet and tastes likes sweet oatmeal... I was once handed my bagel sandwich...More

You can count on the The Works for a fresh bagel, bagel sandwich, salad, or smoothie. It is a go-to when on the road.

My quest to find a 20-ounce hot latte in downtown Concord continues. Even though 20-ounce hot lattes are not on the menu at The Works, they told me they could make one, then proceeded to charge me approximately $6, the same as Starbucks. Then they...More

I have eaten at The Works many times - really enjoy sitting outside in the warm weather. The Works has a nice selection of sandwiches and are consistently made.

We go here occasionally for a dependable, tasty lunch. It's a fixture on Main Street. It used to be called "Bagel Works" but they've gone beyond bagel sandwiches to include a full range of sandwiches, wraps, soups, and salads. It's an order-at-the-counter kind of place...More

This is the best of locally owned and operated café, in a wonderful historic downtown. Bagels made on-site - lots of variety and lots of sandwiches and other goodies - including coffees and teas. Eat Local, eat at the Works!

When visiting Concord, which I frequently do on business, I love to stop at The Works Café and Bakery! The bagels (although, not quite as good as NYC...) are very good for the area! The choices for toppings and sandwiches are plentiful and healthy options...More
