Note: Helen's is cash-only! We had excellent sandwiches! Ice cream vendor is a good one, but not necessarily the one posted outside.

We enjoyed the "local flavor" of this restaurant. The food was good, and the waitress was friendly and attentive. A variety of breakfast foods were offered in a clean and inviting surrounding.

Easy to get to. Very convenient in concord. I had the tuna sandwich which was average. Good fries. But the malt frappe was amazing! I would go back.
