Nashoba Brook Bakery

Outdoor picnic tables and benches behind the Bakery look over wooded wetlands, a cobblestone retaining wall, and an old wooden footbridge framing the Nashoba Brook. Large interior glass windows look in on roughly 4,000 square feet of artisan bread kitchens and our two massive 32,000 pound French ovens. With seating for 45 and an additional “cozy corner” with couches and mission style chairs, the café is an inviting surprise built into an old brick industrial warehouse building at the edge of the bustling West Concord retail district. Free wi-fi, premium shade-grown organic coffee, home made soups, salads and prepared foods and of course our award winning bread and pastries are all available 7 days a week. If you decide to visit, we feel confident you will want to come back.

Delightfully cozy, with delicious coffee, sandwiches that impress, and beautiful bread. Despite living a short walk away, I never would have noticed this place or have been encouraged to stop in without browsing Google maps. Now it's my favorite local lunch place. (Online ordering makes it easy for groups). Breakfast is also served until noon.

It's hidden and looks from outside like hole in a wall but Every local prizes this place and it's for a good reason. Bread is fantastic, hot sandwiches may look a bit pricy but tasty. They serve breakfast in and/or take away. Located on a river bank, a few tables outside, nothing fancy. Come and try for yourself!
R B.   May 30, 2022
The best sandwiches in the area! They are very hearty, and the bread is incredibly good. The Harvest Chicken Salad, Curried Chicken Salad, and Reuben are...

One of the best sandwiches I’ve ever had! The bread is amazing and the flavors/ingredients are very well balanced!
Angel G.   April 24, 2022
Flavors. Bread is exquisite. Awesome, attentive service. Cleanliness. Wish the portions were bigger though.

If you want to enjoy the most delicious and healthy slice of artisan bread; you need to visit Nashoba Brook Bakery. I have been buying this bread from a local farmers market and recently got some delivered and it is just the best toast you can have. The staff and owners are so wonderful and willing to answer questions about how to store this bread and keep it fresh. I emailed them and they are just wonderful. Please shop local and buy this bread. Concord has so much to offer historically. Grab a loaf and some cheese and some perrier and have a walk about 4.16 Finally found the place. Had the best baguette sundried tomato sandwich ever.

Great bread, pastries, sandwiches and coffee. Nashoba Brook is easy to miss as the entrance isn't visible from the street. It's worth seeking out. They have fresh bread baked daily some loaves (rosemary garlic) that are only available on certain days. All the food is scrumptious, but the wait can be long at busy times. I also like that they have a large bookshelf for leaving and picking up books. Highly recommended.
Kath Bowers   December 27, 2021
Gourmet bakery and lunch items hand made in artisanal fashion. Generous portions, comfortable seating, lovely riverside location, friendly staff. Coffee and tea made to order. You'll be glad you came!

Are you in west concord and you can’t seem to find a coffee shop that’s not a chain? If you are reading this, you are in luck! You found a great coffee spot! The bakery is nested in a brick building, hard to see from the street. You will need to look past the gas station and truck delivery space. Just walk towards the building, it’s there! When you go inside it feels like you found a little secret. Food is great, good vibes, and the people working are kind. Highly recommend stopping in, but get there early if you want a large selection of baked goods!
William Renzulli   October 12, 2021
Makes their own goodies. Slightly high, but very fresh. Difficult to find. They even have granola.
Liz Larson   October 3, 2021
Had a delicious sandwich and lemon square here yesterday. That harvest bread is incredible! Will definitely be back.

Have come to Nashoba for breakfast a few times now, still have not gotten past how amazing their breakfast is. It's super consistent: home fries are hot, super crispy, well seasoned; the egg in the sandwich is always perfectly, slightly runny egg; the fruit always sweet. This place is such a gem!! I recommend biking here for breakfast in the summer and sit out in the back patio seating by the river. Also don't leave without a loaf of fresh bread and maybe a brownie for later.
Brooke S.   September 6, 2021
Delicious food and drinks! And they compost so I love the sustainability of this place. The brook in the back is so peaceful and relaxing; a wonderful...
Marshall Horwitz   August 15, 2021
Great bread! The parking lot is short on spaces, so either park on the street for 12 minutes free, or pay to park on the street. But it is worth it. Attentive staff.
Miles Fidelman   July 24, 2021
Good food. Good price. Good people. Great setting (outdoor seating next to the brook).
Mal Cole   June 29, 2021
Marvelous local business. Breads are all great. For breakfast get the almond cringle. For lunch get the curry chicken salad. But all things are good here! There's easier parking at the end of Wilson road off of Commonwealth Ave. Look for the bread trucks and the foot bridge.
Sean S.   May 26, 2021
Always the best in slow ride breads. I buy weekly and staff and products are top notch
Frank Gifritta   May 18, 2021
Best bread around! Try the pepperjack or rosemary! But don't neglect any other bread they are all so good!
Lori Morton   April 9, 2021
My husband and I got sandwiches here. Wonderful food, friendly staff, great location! Right on the river. We look forward to coming back, hoping to sit outside at one of the picnic tables
Brian Watson   April 4, 2021
Amazing sandwich for a good price. Had the harvest chicken salad on french bread, and added sweet pea guac (which I'd never had before, but was pleasantly surprised).
George Nelson   March 10, 2021
This is my go to spot for sandwiches and bread. I am a huge fan of the #3 and my special friend loves the #15. I would recommend ordering off their menu with no substitutions. If you order your own messed up sandwich that’s on you! Also, make sure you check your order when you pick it up! Mistakes happen, if you let them know it’s not a big deal. Other than that the bread is obviously great and incredibly well priced. Muffins and scones are also great. My mom is obsessed with the scones and I fairly certain she is convinced they have magical powers. I also once got granola there and it was great. Not sure why I haven’t gotten it again but It never seems like the right move when I am there. I’ll have to reevaluate the granola situation next time I am there. Also the free library they have going is cool. Proud to say I took, read and then put back a book from there. It was “The Wisdom Of Crowds” by James Surowiecki. Also the french bread is my favorite bread they have. It’s incredibly versatile and never disappoints.

I always come here when I need some comfort food, the bread is fresh and delicious and the sandwiches are great.

Paul Sushchyk   January 27, 2021
This bakery has excellent quality sourdough bread. I have been am amateur baker for much of my adult life and was developing my own sourdough recipe after the pandemic hit. I found their breads available at a local supermarket and was just enthralled by the crumb and crust of their loaves. Please support this bakery!!
Danya Li   January 27, 2021
Tasty sandwiches and salads in to-go containers. We actually buy the sourdough at our local store! Love the breads and bakery selection (get there early)!

Why didn't I know about this place sooner? This bakery EXCELS when it comes to bread. They have an array of breads from the usual suspects like sourdough and multigrain to rotational offerings like pepperjack cheese bread and rosemary garlic bread. I got the pepperjack cheese bread and it was absolutely excellent. The next time I go I will be sure to visit on a day that they have the rosemary garlic bread (some of the bread offerings rotate so you may want to check in advance before you go if you have your heart set on a particular loaf!) I grabbed a peanut butter cookie and a chocolate peanut butter latte to go along with the bread. The peanut butter cookie was amongst the best I've ever had. Perfectly chewy with bits of peanuts and melt-in-your-mouth goodness. The latte was so-so. I don't normally get peanut butter in my drinks so I'd go for a different beverage next time. They have seating indoors and outdoors that overlooks a small river. Some people were enjoying their coffees and pastries outside and in a socially distant way. I'm not comfortable with that yet, but once more people receive their COVID vaccines I would love to be able to enjoy their outdoor space.

Went there with two kids and another family, I never knew this place was there, signs were not easily seen. The food was great, ordered three different sandwiches for my family. And got two loaves of multigrain and garlic bread, it was delicious. The service was good, our order got mixed up with someone else’s, but no big deal, it can happen to anyone!

Mr. Furby   September 29, 2020
Food isn't anything special, but the bread making viewing platform is great! I always smell delicious bread everytime I'm walking by, as long as there isn't a loud truck beeping. Be sure to check out the back it is very nice.
Diana Nguyen   September 27, 2020
I have tried their sourdough bread, raisin bread, chocolate croissant, chocolate chip cookie, and brownie so far. All were really good! Parking can be tricky to find, they actually have two lots, one that the GPS will take you to and then there’s another parking lot where the benches are for outside eating. Nashoba brook makes breakfast as well as sandwiches for lunch. Next time, I definitely want to try one of their meals. When you walk inside, there’s one entrance to walk in with stickers on the ground to ensure social distancing. You are then called up to the counter to order, and you can exit through a different door.

This place is delicious and has a nice area in the back along the river where you can eat on the picnic tables. The food is delicious but get there by 8 if you want some of their delicious croissants.
Arnold H.   September 6, 2020
Bread is solid. I'll definitely visit at some point to try some other things.
Jim Van Sciver   September 4, 2020
Very enjoyable: good virus safety, peaceful spot overlooking Nashoba Brook to enjoy my Glorious Morning muffin and small coffee midway through a long bike ride. I wish they had a bike rack by the brook but I was able to chain up on a signpost out front.

This bakery is amazing. Their croissants are flakey and soft, their cheese cake is to die for, their breads are always fresh and well made, and their espresso is on point. I would go out of my way to go here and grab stuff for a party. The atmosphere is a laid back casual Cafe vibe and the staff is super friendly. This place is a gem!!!
