The Colonial Inn does a great and reasonably-priced breakfast, served in an antiques-filled decor with plenty of New England traditional ambience. Their hearty Sunday brunch buffet is popular with visitors and locals. White tableclothes and handsomely-set tables make this more than your routine breakfast experience.

 Helen's in Concord center serves up breakfast in classic diner-style, and has tables near the window that are great for people-watching, as well as comfy booths.

 Over in West Concord, the Club Car Cafe, housed in the recently renovated building which used to be the old train station, serves up big plates of eggs and home fries in a wonderful high-ceilinged space.  It's rarely crowded, so you can linger at your table and watch the commuters hustle in and out while you sip your second cup of coffee.  Plain fare, fairly priced.

 For those seeking breakfast-on-the-go, you can get coffees and pastries and such at several places.  In Concord Center, you'll find Main Streets Cafe, La Provence (which also has table service), Starbucks, and Dunkin Donuts.  In West Concord: Concord Teacakes (fresh muffins and scones!), Nashoba Brook Bakery (smell the bread baking!) and the inevitable Dunkin Donuts again.
