For 51 years a small mom and pop diner has been a constant town favorite of Northborough, ma. Tilz had a big impact in the town community and was cherished for a long time. In January 2018 the business was sold becoming Two Doors Away Cafe and has undergone some light renovations. Our goal is to uphold the same legacy that Tilz created, become just as much a part of the community and of course serve great food in a welcoming atmosphere!


Two Doors Away Cafe is a family owned and operated restaurant serving american comfort foods for breakfast, lunch & a Friday night fish fry. We are currently owned by Tom Lowe and Jane Pond of Lowe's meat & variety and Operated by Chris and Rachel Pond. Most of the town knows Tom, or tommy as some call him. Tom plays a huge role in the community of northborough and you don't live in or around northborough without visiting the meat counter, or having a sandwich at Lowe's. It was important to us that the name of the restaurant have a connection with its roots. two doors away cafe is 2 doors away from Lowes And cafe is the icing on the cake. Chris and Rachel are a husband and wife team with 3 little boys. Chris is the main chef for Two doors away cafe with experience from lowes' meat counter to the fish market manager at west boylston seafood and a kitchen manager at tgi fridays. Rachel has experience with serving, management and Hr tasks.


Our menu upholds the traditional staples of an american breakfast, lunch and a classic fresh New England fish-n-chips along with retro frappes and floats that pair perfectly with one of our never frozen burgers. It is our goal to branch out our menu selections as we go and look forward to introducing innovative specials.
