Since the early 1930's, Helen's has been a long-standing favorite evoking the history and character of Concord, Massachusetts. Three generations of the Denisevich family has been bringing great food, delicious desserts, and friendly service to Concord families and out-of-town visitors.
From the beginning, in the early 30's, Helen Denisevich, an immigrant from Russia, opened Helen's Restaurant in this original location. She did the homestyle cooking while her husband, Paul, did the serving.
Then in 1950's, George, Helen's son, opened a fill-service restaurant on Lexington Road called The Fairway. The restaurant was considered the "hot spot" for dinner and dancing during its time.
In 1984, Paul, Helen's grandson and George's son, opened Brigham's Cafe, right in Helen's original location, with the intention of continuing the Denisevich legacy. The restaurant name changed to Helen's in 2003, to honor the founder of the Denisevich family restaurants in Concord.
Over the years we've changed, but we still have the great food and great value. Our extensive menu offers old-fashioned American favorites to innovative diverse dishes using produce from our local farmers. Part of our success has been due to building a strong relaionship with our community and our customers. The Denisevich family welcomes you to Helen's to enjoy what's new- and what's old...

Air Quality Improvements
Dear Valued Customers,
We have recently installed iWave Air Purifying device to our AC system. When air passes over iWave, ions produced by the device reduce pathogens, allergens, particles, smoke and odors in the air, creating a healthy environment without producing any harmful byproducts.
iWave uses patented technology, called needle-point bi-polar ionization, to create equal amounts of positive and negative ions. When these ions are injected into the air stream, they break down passing pollutants and gases into harmless compounds like oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and water vapor.
iWave’s technology generates the same ions that nature creates with lightening, waterfalls, ocean waves, etc. Nature uses energy and shear to break apart molecules, naturally cleaning the air and producing a healthy environment. The only difference between the iWave’s technology and nature is that the iWave does it without developing harmful ozone.
Most importantly, iWave family of products have been proven through independent lab testing to significantly reduce a wide variety of pathogens in the breathing zone and on hard non-porous surfaces, which helps with reducing the threat of COVID-19. They found that after 15 minutes, 92.6% of the virus was inactivated, and at 30 minutes, 99.4% of the virus was inactivated while using iWave’s air purifier. See worksheet for more information.
