“This is a friendly spot for excellent breakfast and conversation.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

I enjoy visiting Main Street Cafe for its genuinely amiable atmosphere and splendid breakfast cuisine. Parking in the back is free; everything about the Main Street Cafe is inviting, clean and wholesome.

“Decent food and coffee and music, but lines and crowded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

I've been here for lunch with a friend, dinner with a group, and live music with my spouse. These have all been quite ok. But I don't like coming here because it always seems cramped and there's always a line. I think part of it is layout, and part of it is identity. This place, ideally located on Concord's main street, wants to be everything; morning coffee stop, bakery, live music venue and restaurant. It's set up more like a coffee shop.

The baked goods are tasty, the restaurant menu is varied, with especially nice salad. The live music, when we attended, was great, but again, the space is really not ideal for it. You feel like you're packed in like sardines. Coffee drinks are good but the lines are bad.

“Neat little independent with quirky charm”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

Order at the bar and grab a seat alongside everyone else is the way at Main Streets Market & Cafe. A neat little deli style cafe, with real bustle and charm. Food not bad and reasonable value.

“Morning, Noon or Night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

This is a fun place to go, morning, noon or night! Yummy baked good and coffee, good sandwiches at lunch and some pretty good dinner fare. Good atmosphere, lots of local color. There is music some nights, can be hard to take....
