Main Streets Market & Cafe

Main Streets Market & Cafe, one of the most popular restaurants in Historic Downtown Concord on Main Street, Concord, Massachusetts.

We are open EVERY day at 8am, serving 3 meals daily.

We feature a variety of food, including vegetables grown at our family farm & lots of delicious dishes for all three meals. The Bar & nightly Live Music make it the perfect spot in town to go even after dark! This quaint restaurant is in a historical brick building in the heart of Concord Center.

We are the 4th generation of The Anderson Family to own the building & have been serving food to locals and travelers from this location in Concord for over 100 years! 5th generation Andersons will likely be waiting on you during your visit to Main Streets.

Formerly L. Anderson and Sons & Andersons Market also known as “Andersons” or “The Market”, Concord’s grocery store and catering for the first 3 generations is now a sit down restaurant, Main Streets Market & Cafe.

So much history: Prior to serving food, The Grist Mill, which houses Main Streets, stored ammunition during the Revolutionary War in the 1700’s.

Please come by to eat, sit, and enjoy all that we have to offer.

They were really slammed so the service was not the best but it wasn't any of the staff or restaurants fault. The chili here is one of my favorites, not spicy but sweet and hearty I believe they put squash or pumpkin in there which is so tasty and adds a lot of flavor and texture. The best part of the chili is the sweet sugary cornbread they give you with it and it just works so well.

I love coming here for a quick bite to eat, sometimes the wait may be longer but I don't mind. It's worth it to support local businesses and shops. It's mostly in a timely manner and food portions are good as well as making good leftovers. Please support local businesses!

Stopped in for breakfast while visiting the town of Concord. Breakfast was great served quick and hot! The waitress was nice and the restaurant was clean. Next time I visit Concord I'll make sure to stop in and grab a bite!

I loved this cozy restaurant. They had everything you could think of on their menu from breakfast, lunch, appetizers, soups, sandwiches, plus meals. They also have a bar and very friendly and speedy wait staff. Coffee was delicious too.

I stopped by on my way through Massachusetts and grabbed a coffee and delicious slice of red velvet cake. It was a nice stop on my road trip, but I foolishly left something behind, and called to find that an employee had found it and was keeping it safe. The manager went out of their way to mail it to me to save me a long trip, and I'm grateful they took the time to do that.

Used to love this place- if there's a diet cola version of a restaurant experience, that's what we had. Just meh. Pro tip? If you order food to go, you can eat it at their picnic tables without waiting for outdoor dining.

Breakfast was good, service was quick, lots of outdoor seating, but dining room was a bit warm -- probably because of the full-length plexiglass dividers...

Went to Main Streets Market & Cafe and they were so accommodating as we first thought about sitting outside after they closed down the seating. Manager Jennifer was totally on board with it and was in the process of making it happen when one of our party members felt it too chilly. Instantly, the offer to come indoors was made and we were given the front window with an incredible view. Then our server, Eddie prepared a drink that wasn't even on the menu. The cornbread was warm and sweet and our entire party was satisfied with their choices of pot roast, a burger (with substitution) and a salad with salmon. Friendly and professional staff and excellent food. Love this place and we have one Happy Mother celebrating an early Mother's Day!

Fun, friendly place in Concord Center. Great outdoor seating (dogs allowed, outdoors). Decent menu variety. Service can be a little slow when it's busy.

Place is in perfect location. Food is good. Good beer's on tap. On tourist season it's impossible to get in. It's just not that good to wait for an hour to get in.

It was busy for brunch, I wish they took reservations, but oh well. The food and drinks arrived in a timely fashion and were delicious. We had a hard time flagging down the waiter again to get some salt and pepper shakers and order another round of drinks, but to be fair we didn't try hard enough and just made do.

Outdoor seating and delicious breakfast burritos. Heaters are set up, but seats are cold when temps are down in the 30s. Just bring a blanket and enjoy a quaint Concord Center setting.
Mark Thompson   September 28, 2020
Terrific venue, with well prepared bowls and entrees. We enjoyed the pulled pork mac and cheese and the seafood risotto: sizeable portions and delicious. The acai and rice bowls were both excellent. The outdoor seating is very cozy, allowing for people watching. Service is polite, but be prepared to wait at this busy spot.
David Rouse   September 28, 2020
I eat here a lot since I work close by. I love how their service is always great and they keep the place well kept consistently. Rates are reasonable and they serve large portions.

We had been to this place before COVID 19 a few times and we loved it. Inside seating near the bar in the top area of the restaurant is the best. During COVID 19, the experience was just as nice! Crowded on the weekend, just like any good place - but the wait wasn't too bad. Outdoor seating was plentiful and we'll spread out. Staff were friendly and attentive. Food was delicious and affordable! Great variety of delicious and hearty food. Everything on the menu looks incredible - we got a Reuben sandwich and gyro this time around and both were so good. Top quality food and highest tier service.

People were very nice. Food we got was superb. Stopped there during a bike ride to Walden Pond. Had a chicken quesadilla and pasta vegetable salad. They have some excellent local produce.

This place is such a delight. Stopped here during a short adventure in Concord. Everyone was friendly. They have an outdoor seating that is well disinfected after each customer/s. The food was delicious!!!! Ordered the fried zucchini that’s grown from their garden. The artichoke chicken piccata was also tasty! I love that they incorporated the artichoke in the dish! Will certainly be back here.
Christine Chao   July 23, 2020
Super cute little cafe. The chicken piccata was amazing from the first to the last bite! Highly recommend. We also ordered the fried zucchini which was made from zucchini grown on site! Will definitely be back
