Hingham's answer to a cozy neighborhood Parisienne bistro. The food is great and consistently well prepared. Varied choices--and, small plates available for those with "smaller" appetites. Crab cakes are noteworthy, but, really, anything ordered will not disappoint. And, save room for dessert; pastry chef is phenomenal.

From Boston south Brockton to Plymouth there really aren't that many really really good restaurants, setting aside seafood. And at least three of them are in Hingham. Full attention here to service. Really nice ambience. The food really stands out for the South Shore and beyond to the south. Tuna and cod entrees were excellent. Tuna taco really well received.... More

The Square Cafe is in Hingham center, its a nice open room, the lighting is nice at night, nice and bright during the day. They have a pretty good menu of a wide range of salads and sandwiches and intersting plates for lunch. We had the chicken salad split, nice greens, fresh avacado. Tuna sashimi wraps by my lunch date... More

I have been to this restaurant 5-10 times over the past year. Every time the food has been excellent and the service superb. Absolutely consistent and terrific. I almost do not want to go anywhere else!

After a bike ride at Wompatuck we stopped in Hingham Center for lunch, famished. We went to Square Cafe fort the first time, ordered three appetizers. The mussels were excellent, prepared Thai style in a spicy coconut sauce, the flatbread pizza was petite but very tasty, piled high with arugula, and our caesar salad was finely tossed and delicious, with...

Great consistency with the food and always good service Menu hasn't changed much in over the years I would like to see a little bit more local flavors and more organic options

The Square Café, consistently, delivers among the very best evenings of fine dining. The staff all continue to be professional & friendly. You can count on: generous cocktails and wine pours; delicious apps, salads, small and large plates, and deserts, as well as tasty and creative specials. The décor is warm and inviting. All of these attributes make it a... More

We were taken to the Square Cafe whilst on holiday staying with some friends that live in Hingham. We were four adults and three children (aged 10, 10 and 8). Our son has a peanut allergy and this was carefully noted. The server was very clear and helpful in this regard. Altogether the service was outstanding. The food (we had... More

The Square Café is a great restaurant on North Street, in the center of Hingham. Great food, interesting menu, superior service, good view of the historic downtown ... a bit pricey, but just the place for a special occasion (family gathering, special date, important business dinner). Worth splurging for the right time, with the right person, or people! The room... More
