Visiting Orchard House museum from Bristol, England, had breakfast at this place and really enjoyed it, I had the apple pancakes which were delicious. The staff were super friendly and welcoming. We returned on our second morning and I had a plain omelette and toast, again it did not disappoint.

Great breakfast and lunch spot located by the train station in West Concord. Dine in a beautiful converted 1890s train station building. Affordable prices and excellent corned beef hash.

So, let's be honest. Club Car is not your most refined, your most elevated, your most gourmet breakfast experience. But sometimes that's the right choice. Like, personally, I'd love to see some sharp cheddar. The cheddar is weak! Ron, get some sharp cheddar please. Also, maybe a nice crusty slice of real whole wheat toast. I wish there was a little more variety on the omelette selection. But it's a nice big plate of food, it's a neighborhood joint, it's got choo-choo trains that go around a track along the ceiling. When you have them add cheese to the scrambled eggs, they add a lot. There's a lot of butter on the table. You bring your kids or your folks. The "Big Breakfast" doesn't make you choose between bacon or sausage: you get both bacon AND sausage. My wife says they make hash browns just the way she likes them. Buy the way, I own the health food store down the block.

Amazing food, quite quaint place right next to the train tracks. There is a model train circling the inside border of the cafe. I tried the Mexican skillet and it was fabulous. The chili was filled with flavor. We had a slight mishap with timing of our meal and the servers were very attentive to us and even provided us with some additional pastries. They go above and beyond for their customers.

We had breakfast here with two little kids who are obsessed with trains. While the food was delicious, the ambiance (with toy trains zooming around and real trains peeking through the windows intermittently) is what set this cafe apart for us. A true hit for a family with little kids. The staff were very friendly, too.

Delicious brunch before a lovely fall hike. Hearty and delicious!! Staff were attentive while hustling around a full restaurant. Pumpkin pancakes - perfection.
Alex Lozada   September 18, 2023
Food very good, though highlight by far is atmosphere and friendly staff. On a busy Saturday AM be prepared for a wait, even after seated but the classics train decor and local memorabilia makes waiting more enjoyable. Google Maps was not as clear about which parking lot but that's on Google not Club Car Cafe

Tasty breakfast food in a pleasant, diner-style atmosphere. Almost feels like you're waiting for a train (and I suspect you can, you know, wait for a train there, although not with quite the romance of old; as far as I know only the MBTA stops there. But if you're commuting, or even just on a special event trip, it's worth arriving early to eat here. Highly recommended, even though it will likely increase custom, thus decreasing my personal enjoyment (some of the charm was the low occupancy when I went, which was for Saturday brunch around 10 or so).

Stopped in West Concord to have some breakfast while riding my bike along the Bruce Freeman trail. Breakfast was delicious, nicely prepared and presented. Busy place, but service was good and attentive. Mostly indoor seating but also have a few tables outside. Looking forward to going back again.

Great breakfast or lunch in this converted train depot from 1894. Enjoy the model trail that runs along the ceiling while you have a delicious omelete or sandwich. Just like old times!
Mandi Cat   July 16, 2023
Very fast service with a smile. Food is good for a diner. I'd go again. I had the avocado toast which was more like guacamole. Would try something else. My husband's sausage gravy was great.
Matthew Proujansky   June 23, 2023
The food and service are excellent. The atmosphere is fine--it's at a train station and has seen some wear, but one can see that as authentic and quaint. CCC serves traditional diner fare in a traditional manner: the coffee comes in heavy duty mugs with refills if you order an entree, the scrambled eggs are moist, over medium eggs came over medium, the corned beef hash was delicious and was not too salty as hash often is, the home fries were crispy on the outside and soft within, and there was ketchup and jelly. There was plenty of seating, inside and out, with tables nicely spread apart. The prices were good too--two full breakfasts with coffee cost $28. I like diners, and this is a good one.
Wes Beattie   May 10, 2023
Wicked good chocolate chip pancakes and BBQ chicken sandwich. Staff is super friendly and awesome.

Makes me so happy to be here. I love the charm of West Concord. The food is always so good here! Sometimes they get a little busy and things slow down, but the waitstaff is so great and accommodating ❤️ I love the train that rides along a track on the perimeter of the top of the room
Larry Fry   December 20, 2022
A wonderful small brewery with a pleasant atmosphere. I had a variety of appetizers and their Oktoberfest beer and was delighted by both. The staff went out of their way to make my wife and I welcome.
Amrith Kumar   November 19, 2022
Club Car Cafe is a gem! When possible, get outdoor seating. The indoors are wonderful too. For those with children, (and/or) about to take a train journey, the model train that runs around the room is a surprise. Breakfast is excellent. Coffee is always fresh and there is a good selection of teas. Great to buy baked goods too!! A neighborhood treasure. Easy parking in their lot, or the municipal lot right next door.
Lee Lipski   November 6, 2022
Good food and service. Ordered breakfast sandwiches (one bacon and one sausage) which were very tasty! An interesting place but getting a little dated / run down
Susan B.   October 4, 2022
Forgot to take pictures .. BUT get the chili ! Very good ! We missed breakfast , but I am sure that would be good too

Ruth Liu   August 16, 2022
Cute place right by train tracks, with train themed decor. Coleslaw was the best I ever had--light mayo and small pineapple chunks! Good sized portions for reasonable price. Chicken parm sandwich is huge! BLT is packed with bacon. Gluten free bread available. Kid friendly. Service was friendly and top notch.
Jill N.   August 16, 2022
Small cost place that doesn't wow you with its decor. Old train station turned cafe. Food was very good - I enjoyed eggs over easy with hash and my guests...
Craig Bean   August 14, 2022
Great small town Cafe. Food was really good and staff was speedy. If I drive through here again, I need to remember this place. Very well done.

The food is absolutely phenomenal. Great ingredients. The staff is lovely, friendly, and get on well together. My children were welcomed warmly. Great place ❤️

Christopher Rhodes   June 29, 2022
Food was tasty. Portions were big. Coffee was hot. Service was great. Looking forward to making this a regular spot over the summer.
Albert Froment   June 28, 2022
I’ve been patronizing the Club Car Cafe for over 20 years and I love it. I particularly love their break-fast. It’ a small family run cafe. Great service. Friendly and efficient service.
Susan O.   June 26, 2022
Cute, prompt service and good food ! Whats not to like? Liked the menu, coffee was good, server promptly refilled our cups. Will definitely go again!

Drew C.   June 19, 2022
Great to see how busy the Club Car was today, but the coffee kept flowing and the food was perfect Father's Day fare. We love this place!
Peter Stewart   June 5, 2022
This family-owned business is a wonderful stop in West Concord. Bianca is a very efficient waitress and the food is good! And it has a very cute model train chugging around the perimeter of the ceiling! Bravo!

My son loved the train going around the room as well as being able to watch the commuter rail. Food was great.
Meka C   February 28, 2022
Awesome place and friendly staff. Owner is the best! Seated quickly and the food was great.
Missy Miller   February 21, 2022
Cute little place. Very cold if you sit near the door in winter. Food was delish. Friendly staff. I would go here again
James Linkous   February 3, 2022
Next time you find yourself here in delightful Concord MA cruise around the corner on Main St and have breakfast at the Club Car Cafe, right on the tracks at the train station. Open at 0700, and when isn’t a hot bacon egg and cheese sandwich - with home fries - a welcome change of pace?
Dan Powers   January 9, 2022
I picked up a meal for my son. It smelled so good I had to try it. It tasted so good I had to finish it. 2 eggs, bacon, white toast, home fries. All delicious. My daughter got a sausage and bell pepper omelet. Equally great!
Bobby K.   December 27, 2021
A little hard to find, but the West Concord Depot has a hidden treasure: the Club Car Cafe. Commuters know it as a place to grab a cup of coffee. But it is...
Andrew Negron   December 11, 2021
Service was good, food delicious, I mean how hard is it to make an omelet and home fries. It was good.

Delicious Sunday brunch at Club Car Cafe! Went above and beyond! Extremely accommodating! Friendly staff.
Steve Greenfield   October 25, 2021
Really cute and perfect for a meeting or even date. We were greeted by 2nd gen owner who made us feel very special... go for the yummy eggs Benedict

Excellent spot to grab breakfast right by the commuter rail. Quaint little building with indoor and outdoor seating. Service was excellent. Your friendly neighborhood breakfast spot.
Annie O.   July 30, 2021
Great place for kids! If you time it right, you can watch the commuter rail go by from inside or walk outside and see it up close. There's a toy train...
Bernard Farrell   July 8, 2021
Reliably great breakfast plus an indoor train for the kids. I've eaten at the Club Car Cafe many times over the years and it's always good.
Christie Billups   June 24, 2021
Good food, friendly service. I didn't try their baked good but I bet they were delish. I was surprised there weren't a few edgy or trendy menu choices, but it was good nonetheless.
Anthony Hopf   June 14, 2021
This establishment has been here for over 30 years, and delivers a fantastic breakfast. I'm so glad to see that it weathered the pandemic considering it is part of a train station. I'm glad that I can bring my kids to this staple of the Concord community.
Joyce Annetts   June 1, 2021
Our waitress was delightful. The service was great and the food was good. The Buffalo chicken needed a little help, the chicken itself was not great, tasted frozen.
Don Juan C.   April 21, 2021
Absolutely yummy yum yum deliciousness!!! What can I say not one bad thing on this menu!
Boss Blue   April 18, 2021
We had a great time here everything was delicious and fresh, and the presentation is beautiful with good sized portions. Indoor and outdoor seating available, indoor is spacious and tables are large with distancing between them I felt safe dining here. Everyone is friendly and I love to read about the historic aspects and watch the cute train loop overhead. Can’t wait to go back!
Amanda Gates   April 12, 2021
The staff was really great and really friendly, the wait was a bit long to get seated but that’s completely understandable on a Sunday plus with less tables because of covid. I took half of my breakfast home as leftovers and was excited to have the next day until I chewed on a huge piece of egg shell in my eggs benedict. I’d have said something if I was in the restaurant
Cynthia Dorsey   March 31, 2021
The Club Car Cafe is great! The food is always good with generous portions. I have gone here for lunch for years and sometimes brunch on the weekend. The owners are kind and friendly and the service is good. The historic setting is charming and it's so nice to have places like this still in existence that have such history and personality. It's fun to watch the trains go by on the tracks outside and to see the cute train that goes around the ceiling inside. I feel perfectly safe eating here. They follow all COVID precautions. Tables are spaced far apart, surfaces are disinfected, there is lots of space in general here and the ceilings are high (it used to be a train depot,) and there is outdoor seating. They often leave the doors wide open for fresh air. Will be back regularly.

Excellent Cafe. Owner operated. Very COVID friendly. One way entrances. I order the cheeseburger and Turkey club frequently, they are always made to perfection. The one of a kind coleslaw is great, they add pieces of pineapple to it which tastes great. I highly recommend this cafe.

Nice little spot. The Depot at W. CONCORD. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Above average

Elizabeth McMain   January 10, 2021
My husband and I found this restaurant while searching for a breakfast place on google maps and decided to stop in for brunch. The restaurant far exceeded our expectations! The atmosphere was adorable, we loved the little train that goes around the walls of the restaurant. The food was delicious as well, especially the home fries! He got the breakfast skillet and I got the avocado toast. The bread that the avocado toast was on was also particularly tasty and had a great texture to it! The over easy eggs we each got had the perfect amount of runny yolks as well. We each decided to try hot chocolate bombs for the first time while we were there, I had it in my coffee and was very pleased with the mocha flavor! Above all however, the service was excellent!! From the moment we walked in the door the waitress was warm and welcoming and she continued to be throughout our interaction. She was very attentive and provided the friendliest service I have ever received in Massachusetts (we moved here from Michigan a few years ago). By the end of our brunch the rest of the staff had come out and chatted with us for a bit as well continuing on the atmosphere of welcoming and kindness. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for tasty food, nice atmosphere, and outstanding service! Thank you Club Car Cafe for starting our day off on a high note!

$3.85 for a small coffee and a big coffeecake muffin! Don't think you can get it that cheap anywhere else! Lots of outdoor seating, too.
Cheryl Silverberg   October 19, 2020

The breakfast was excellent. Eggs, cornbread, and omelet were all very tasty.
Mute Mutti   March 7, 2020
Cute little place, kind of hidden, next to a T stop. Kids were happy to watch the train. They have a few parking spots. I parked on the main road,.have pay parking. I had a Sausage omelet with home fries, home fries could use some Seasoning. My daughter had chili, came with corn chips, she liked it.

Roberta MacLean   January 10, 2020
Beautiful old building. I can't say enough good things. The owners are very nice. The food was really good. It's also like a small bakery with delicious muffins and breads. Great menu.
John Wallace   September 18, 2019
Great location at the West Concord train station for this family run, family friendly breakfast and lunch cafe. Large, bright space is as welcoming as the staff. Did is comforting and well prepared. Enjoy!
Timothy Kelley   June 11, 2019
I stopped there while going through Concord. I must say we stumbled upon a great cozy place. The food was excellent, and it was actually food that was prepared and cooked. Most chain restaurants food tastes like it was frozen and microwaved. If you get the chance, stop by. It’s nice to try unique places like this instead of a Denny’s or Ninety-Nine. The staff was also very friendly. Keep up the good work!

Mike Puckett   April 27, 2018
A great place to grab lunch or an early dinner right in the middle of West Concord. This is a place where everyone knows everyone, and it’s not uncommon to see Ronnie the owner/cook sitting down with his guests/friends to chat and have a bite to eat. Bring the kids and let them enjoy watching the scale train model travel around the restaurant, just as the real thing pulls up outside at the train station. I’d recommend the steak tips for dinner, and a sandwich or burger for lunch.
David P.   November 20, 2013
Took a ride out from the north shore to try a new place. It was worth the trip. The food was great, the coffee stayed topped off and the service was ok....
