Must Try Coffee Shops Concord Ma
If you’re headed to Concord to explore some of its rich history, you are bound to stop for a coffee. Luckily, Concord has an abundant of places to stop. If you’re looking for somewhere to relax for a bit, these are the top three places for you to start with.
- Saltbox Kitchen
There is no better way to begin your day in Concord other than by having an egg sandwich and a coffee from Saltbox Kitchen. Saltbox is a farm–to-table café, brewery and catering service. It sources its produce from Saltbox Farm, also located in Concord. Once you step inside, you are immediately welcomed by the friendly staff, joyful music and the rustic, wooden interior. With an exposed kitchen, you are able to see the chefs at work, and even take cooking classes. Located in the cozy center of West Concord, this provides the perfect location to gear up for a big day exploring the town. If you can’t make it in the morning, the café also serves fresh lunches and dinner.
- Haute Coffee
Tucked away down an alley in Concord’s main center, Haute Coffee is the trendy, hipster coffee shop of Concord. Haute serves up organic coffee, traditional lattes, and cappuccinos. This café brings a piece of the city into the suburbs with its urban feel. With fresh cut flowers on every table and plush seats to relax in, this makes it the ideal place to take a break from the world. In addition to their drinks, they have a selection of tasty pastries, sandwiches, salads, and soups. My personal favorite? The grilled cheese and tomato soup! Add some pesto to the grilled cheese, and you will NOT regret it.
- Concord Teacakes
The oldest of these coffee shops, Concord Teacakes, or just “Teacakes” is a Concord staple. Though the interior is not as thoroughly decorated as Saltbox Kitchen or Haute Coffee, don’t judge a book by its cover. Teacakes has some of the the best pastries of all three cafés, most notably their famous scones. They have plenty of options for coffee and other drinks, like smoothies and cider. The modest cafe has seating inside, as well as a few tables outdoors to admire the relaxing atmosphere of West Concord. If you can’t make it for breakfast, the café also has refrigerated options for lunch, like chicken salad and other sandwiches.
