Sometimes described as a hidden culinary gem in Marlborough, Taqueria La Tapatia offers authentic Mexican food.
The outward appearance of Taqueria La Tapatia can at first be confusing, situated in what appears to be the back of a large white house transformed into apartments. Most likely many have driven past, never noticing its existence on the corner of Pleasant and Lincoln streets. Taqueria La Tapatia may be the definition of "a dive." (Translated: a hole-in-the-wall establishment). In our experience eateries falling under the "dive" category are either a delightful gem or a frightening foray into the darker side of culinary exploration. Luckily, we found this Mexican eatery to be the former—a well-kept secret within the Marlborough community. But what are your thoughts on this spot? When Marlborough Patch reviewed this location last year, …

Jake's Restaurant & Coffee Shop provides hearty meals in a cozy atmosphere.
With a long dining counter complete with swivel stools and a section devoted to tables, Jake's Restaurant feels like a marriage between a traditional diner and a cozy eatery. The menu boasts all of the staples of a hearty breakfast such as a variety of eggs benedict, breakfast sandwiches and omelets of which the claim is posted on the menu that they will make any type of omelet one might crave. For some early morning carb loading, try the giant portion of french toast combined with a steaming side of freshly made hash browns.
