Sarah's Market and Cafe - Concord Ave - Cambridge MA

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Destiny Real Estate Cambridge, MA

Sarah's Market and Cafe - Concord Ave - Cambridge MA   Since owner Raj Patel bought Sarah's in 2003 this corner store and cafe has become a neighborhood favorite.  Located in Huron Village, about a mile from Harvard Square, Sarah's is directly across the street from my office and a favorite with Coldwell Banker agents, Harvard employees, Cambridge police, local students, and neighborhood residents who fill its tables on a daily basis.

Sarah's is a combination convenience store and restaurant.  Walk through the convenience store - well stocked with groceries, gourmet items, cards, newspapers, and the ever popular lottery tickets - to the cafe.

Orders are taken at the counter and cooked to order in front of you.  Kudos to the cooks - I worked in restaurants for years and most cooks were prima donnas whose behavior would never pass public muster.  Sarah's cooks keep the food coming at a rapid clip and are friendly to boot.  Don't be surprised when you're greeted by name at the counter.

The lunch and dinner menu at Sarah's Cafe - on the blackboards that line the walls - includes a variety of sandwiches, wraps, salads, soups, and entrees.  I haven't sampled everything but some of my favorites include:

  • Middle Eastern Veggie Wrap
  • Chicken Caesar Wrap
  • Turkey Burger
  • Grilled Salmon with lemon caper sauce with salad
  • Chicken Parm
  • Peppercorn Steak

The salmon salad's become such a favorite with my family that we often order three and take them home for dinner.

Sarah's Cafe serves one of the very best breakfasts in town.  Breakfast sandwiches are available any time and happily the full breakfast menu is served all day on the weekends.  Omelettes, eggs, pancakes - even the toast is superb.

Sarah's serves a variety of coffees and cappuchinos.  Muffins, cookies and cakes are also on the menu. Customers are welcome to purchase drinks in the market to accompany their meals.

Liz - this is SO ironic. I loved this place.

We got to know Raj as our art gallery was a block away on Huron (near that Italian place - if it's still there). We use to show some of our artist's art work there. great food, casual place, and Raj was a neat person to know. We miss it! Thanks for the memory!! If you go in please say HI (Jeff and Kay, from Mark Gallery). We also knew Ed at the antique store down the street as well. Fond memories.

Liz - cool. I always loved the feel of Sarah's - we were there often on the weekends for brunch. It always felt like home, the crowd was a broad mix of locals, and Raj was always fun to talk with. I'm pleased they are still there - we left over 4 years ago.

Hi Jeff ~ Going strong actually.  I just love the place - the food is so good and it's such a friendly bunch.  I didn't realize your gallery was in Huron Village.  It's terrible - I'm so car-centric in real estate that I don't walk down to the shops nearly enough.

I love the combo concept.  One of my favorites was Louie's Bookstore Cafe in Baltimore.  Restaurant, gallery and bookstore - combines some of my favority things to do.  Sarah's sounds like a great place for brunch or lunch.  Congratulations on another great localism post.

Sarah's Cafe would fit in very appropriately here in Wake Forest!  Its those types of small businesses that we need to continually support.  It sounds as though Sarah's Cafe has the perfect formula for continued communit support!  Now, I am HUNGRY!
