Coming or going from Boston on route 2, I sometimes swing into Concord center to eat at Helens. Extensive menu, excellent quality, upscale diner ambience. Tonight's bacon-cheddar angus beef burger cooked just right. Friendly service. I'll keep coming!

The downside is how crowded it gets on the weekends. Go early, but if you don't make it before the crowds, stay away from the Main Street Market across the street, unless... More

I have been here several times with friends. On weekends during the morning breakfast hours, it is always busy and there's a wait, but once you are seated, the service is quick and your meals are quickly served with efficient staff.

Avocado, Maplewood bacon, tomato and lettuce (ABLT) with a coffee frappe: yum. Add great service equals 6 stars.
