I first visited what is now Main Streets Market and Cafe in September 1959. It was then Anderson's Market, the oasis for students seeking apple cider and comfort food. Having breakfast or lunch today in Main Streets Market and Cafe is quite an experience: it seems that every population segment from Concord, MA is well represented at its tables and... More

This is an interesting spot - the local high schoolers like to eat here, sandwiches are fun and yummy. Not too pricey, but not cheap either. Small, space is tight and there aren't too many tables...but the food is good, so just take it and eat somewhere else, if the weather is good! At night, on Friday and Saturday, they... More

We meet friends there several times a year for breakfast and love the food and the atmosphere. Servers are attentive without being intrusive and keep the coffee cups filled! The location also lends itself to a nice stroll of "downtown" Concord. Street parking can be tough...meters...but there's a free lot half block away.

This nice and small restaurant located in Concord MA is a great place to have something to eat. Food is good and ambiance is even better. Live music every week (check the schedule) and quite crowded some nights. Especially good to mention is breakfast time: either for seating and have some eggs or to get a bagel on the go,... More

I get coffee every day here and sometimes muffins or breakfast sandwiches. All baked goods like muffins and cookies are very good. It's a great place for breakfast or lunch while in Concord whether your doing business, alone couple or family. The staff is super nice, and the meals are nicely portioned and good eating.BBQ pizza is good. It's in... More

My North End omelette was tasty. My wife's skillet was a bit unusual, being made with scrambled eggs instead of the fried eggs we are used to. There is a nice menu of intriguing sandwiches. I'd like to try it again for lunch.

There is nothing else like this in Concord.The atmosphere is casual. Stop by for a snack or a meal. Gluten free options. Many evenings there is entertainment.Wonderful place for locals to get a start performing. Small space so plan ahead. Located in the middle of Concord Center.

I was in Concord on business and ate at the Main Street Market and Cafe on two consecutive nights. The first night I had their signature pot roast and it was the best I have ever had. Large portion with a delicate wine gravy sauce. Generous wine pours too and I enjoyed their red blend. The second night I had... More

I stop here often for a muffin or coffee but sometimes eat meals. Their sandwiches are quite good (i like the California BLT) and the fish tacos are EXCELLENT. Would definitely recommend it if you want to eat in Concord Center but service isn't speedy.
