We stopped in for a drink and each had a green smoothie that were very good. There were plenty of options for lunch or a snack, and a variety of different flavored lattes to choose from. It was very clean and the people were very friendly and helpful.

Try the soup... or the California Cuban... or just about anything! Home-made-and-concocted goodness served with a smile and a price you'll welcome. We'd passed by Carm's a number of times, and when we finally did stop in for lunch we kicked ourselves for all those times. The place is small, nicely decorated, but nothing out of the ordinary. The food... More

This place has really good sandwhichs. The only problem is it's kind of high for a sandwhich. $7 for that is too much. I used an attraction book and got 2 meals for $7!

great service, wonderful onsite prep and healthy meal options. The avocado chicken salad is not a regular, but a winner when they have it! The Live Long salad is healthy and delicious! Dana is not only a great owner and menu planner, but a healthy minded cook also. Friendly down home atmosphere that has update menu options....

Quick and good service. Good food and nice location downtown. We have eaten there once when Ellie's the restaurant across the street was closed for holiday. Our first choice is Ellie's, but Carm's is a good second choice (in our personal opinion).

Loved Carm's Cafe -- that is, when Carm and her family were there. But I learned on a visit this April that they moved back to Connecticut and took the authentic Italian recipes and the warm and charm of the place with them. It will never be the same without the original Carm. For one thing, the service now moves... More

best shrimp and grits for a reasonable price anyplace around here! Ive had this dish many places for no cheaper than 11 dollars but at Carm's you can purchase a bowl for 6 dollars and it is absolutely fantastic!

A narrow strip of a place in downtown Concord with a warm and inviting atmosphere. The wrought iron style dining sets are reminiscent of Euro cafe's. I thoroughly enjoyed my Tuscan chicken panini. It contained a generously portioned chicken breast and a delectable basil pesto. The best part of my meal was the thick and luscious slice off caramel cheesecake-mouth... More
