As a business that prides itself on its convenient and fun location in downtown Haverhill, we at Primary Design try to frequent our food-serving neighbors for lunch as much as possible! Here are our top 5 spots (in no particular order):

Wicked Big Café

Wicked-Big-Cafe-Haverhill-MA

Address: 19 Essex Street Website: wickedbigcafe.com

Wicked Big is the perfect blend of bohemian and laid-back. The atmosphere inside is perfect for studying, or for catching up with a friend over lunch. The atmosphere is both relaxing and inspiring with local art covering the walls, big windows to let the sunlight in, and a ceiling-high chalkboard menu. Wicked Big offers wicked awesome sandwiches and breakfast foods, and a wicked awesome coffee menu. We love Wicked Big Café!

Artist Café

Artist Cafe

Address: 22 Washington Street Website: yelp.com

Some say this little café has the best breakfast in Haverhill – and we might have to agree. The proprietor of the Artist Café, Don, puts nothing but love into his food – and we love him for it! There are plenty of options, as well as lunch selections, too. Bright and open with plenty of art on display to check out, this place truly hits the spot. Artist Café is a Friday favorite for us at Primary.

Sparky’s Wings and Things

Sparkys-Wings-and-Things-Haverhill

Address: 20 Emerson Street Website: sparkyswings.biz

Sparky’s is a great little hidden gem where you can get some of the best pulled pork in Haverhill! With wings being their specialty (hence the name!), there are a variety of sauces you can choose to compliment your meal. They’ve also got sandwiches, burgers, steak fries – you name it! Pop in for a quick bite, or stick around to watch the game on one of their flat-screen TVs.

Krueger Flatbread

Kreugers-Flatbread-Pizza-Haverhill-Mass

Address: 142 Essex Street Website: kruegerflatbread.com

If you’ve got pizza on your mind, look no further than Krueger’s Flatbread. Perfect for just about any occasion, you can watch as the pizza is being made in the wood-fired oven. You really can’t go wrong with great beers on tap, a kid-friendly menu, and delicious salads to boot. Definitely put Krueger’s on your list.

Wang’s Table

Wangs-Table-Haverhill-MA

Address: 46 Washington Street Website: wangstable.com

Wang’s recently revamped their restaurant, and relocated to the heart of Haverhill’s restaurant district. The new location is great (much closer to us here at Primary Design!), and the menu has something for everyone. With both Japanese and Chinese offerings, as well as an extensive sushi list, this spot is sure to satisfy. Be sure to give it a try.
