I often come here for lunch. Love the #62 sandwich (called D&N Have Exact Change!) Really enjoy the big table to sit. The cookies are the best especially the chocolate walnut chunk.

If you are in the area and want something to eat this is a stop by. The cookies are really good, the lemon bread and the macaroon cookie (almond cookie) are the best. The sandwiches are good and big. They can be shared for two...More

On a chilly rainy morning we walked up Concord to have bakery for breakfast. Glad we made the walk as the baked goods were excellent and my grandson enjoyed his muffin. Hot coffee warmed us for the walk back. Recommended and we will return.

Hi-Rise's version of the grilled-cheese sandwich, called Classic Grilled Cheese on its menu, is nothing short of supreme. Its ingredients -- cheddar, Monterey jack, tomatoes, and spicy mustard on sourdough -- complement each other beautifully and are grilled to perfection. The sandwich is large enough...More
