I wish I had the time to sit at a table and enjoy this cute cafe. Plenty of options for everyone here. It was busy at lunch when I stopped by, so make sure you have time to wait (about 15 mins) if you are taking it to go. This sandwich was yummy and came with fries!

Passed by several times & decided to stop in today for lunch. I was with my elderly father and we were lucky enough to get a parking space right in front of the door. The place was hopping at about 11:30 am, little did we know we were lucky to beat the crowd by 12:15 there was a line outside... More

We got here just before the lunch rush and that meant we didn't have to wait as long as the unfortunates that came after us. The food was quite good and the service was pleasant. When a place begins to get busy, you can sometimes get curt service and sideways glances as the servers start to wish you would move... More

There aren't many restaurants offering live music on a Saturday night and that's why we stopped here for dinner. They are slightly disorganized with seating being arranged by a hostess even though the nighttime feel is still "lunch place" like. No true ambiance here and the food attempts to be slightly upscale, but it's simply ok. Still and all, it's... More

Got here just in time (11:45am) to beat the rush and not have to wait. Service was prompt and friendly, food came relatively fast and was delicious for all 4 of us (2 adults, 2 kids). I will be going back when in Concord! Prices are very reasonable!

I have been here several times and have always enjoyed the food - great taste. I recommend going on Tuesday nights, as its "open mic" night and there are some pretty good musicians that play.

It was a quaint place on the Main Street in historical Concord. I had a egg and pork bbq/potato hash that was pretty good. It was so crowded and the tables so small and jammed together that I don't think I would go back unless it was a little less crowded so I wouldn't have to sit by the door... More

My wife and I frequently come here when we are in Concord. Best to arrive early on a weekend for lunch, else there will be quite a wait. We started with the Main Streets mussels. These were nicely steamed in a buttery sauce. There was a bit of an odd taste at first{ not bad but an unusual seasoning. Some... More
