I often come here for lunch. Love the #62 sandwich (called D&N Have Exact Change!) Really enjoy the big table to sit. The cookies are the best especially the chocolate walnut chunk.

everything is homemade... I had the short rib sandwich and it was probably the best sandwich I've ever had in my life. My dad and I also could not help ourselves and grabbed three different types of homemade cookies!!

Quick service. Smells absolutely fantastic. Hot chocolate very satisfying. Lovely selection of baked treats and what looks to be a very reasonable selection of wines for purchase as well.

I come here once in a while for their lattes and vanilla loaf. It's pricey, but nice. The staff is not that friendly, I rarely stay to drink my latte.

On a chilly rainy morning we walked up Concord to have bakery for breakfast. Glad we made the walk as the baked goods were excellent and my grandson enjoyed his muffin. Hot coffee warmed us for the walk back. Recommended and we will return.

Hi-Rise's version of the grilled-cheese sandwich, called Classic Grilled Cheese on its menu, is nothing short of supreme. Its ingredients -- cheddar, Monterey jack, tomatoes, and spicy mustard on sourdough -- complement each other beautifully and are grilled to perfection. The sandwich is large enough...More

No question about it! Excellent quality baked goods. My negative comments are "small" but nevertheless germaine I believe. 1. Rather expensive for a neighborhood establishment - in other words we are paying what one would expect to pay in Harvard Square! Some of the staff...More
