We came for breakfast and it was delicious! Blueberry pancakes with lemon zest and caprese scrambled eggs! All yummo! We will be back... soon!

Enjoyed a good brunch. Could have sat outside but chose to dine indoors at cute retro tables. Temped by chorizo scramble but chose the veggie overload omelet. Other people in party enjoyed pancakes, open face turkey Rachel and brie and berry crepes (portion was small). Would return and recommend. I'd like to try other items as many sounded good and...

In town for a weekend wedding and staying at the Waterfront, but where to go for a good, non chain breakfast, we found it at Square Cafe! The menu was creative, lots of variety and excellent quality. My partner and I always search for gluten free selections on menus and they had some of the best gluten free pancakes I've... More

Stopped here on the way to Gettysburg after driving for a long time. The outside seating is the best, the staff is friendly. Good food and decent prices. Recommend an omelet with Amish Cheddar cheese. Stopped here on a Friday morning, and it was busy!

A great place to eat breakfast. The specials are excellent, and the coffee is hot! Like the local art on the walls. Need to try lunch next time, looked good!

Try to go on a day or time when it's not too crowded - weekend mornings are crazy! Other than that, I've never had a bad experience here. The first time I came I was trying not to spend money and ordered a small bowl of oatmeal, which they were out of - I got to choose anything off the... More

We were hoping from the reviews that this would be a nice Mothers Day experience, but instead, we were disappointed. The atmosphere is adorable and it was totally packed when we arrived, but when we got our food, my mother in laws French toast was cold and so were my pancakes. Also, the pancakes were not light and fluffy but... More

I think this place is overrated. Nothing special. People wait a lot for this small, crowded, noisy place to eat average food.

Menu is interesting and healthy and food and coffee is always good. Always a wait on weekend but worth it. Service is excellent.

Square Cafe has the greatest staff, the best coffee, and their food is to die for. I work EMS and I'm there every Saturday for breakfast. If you get the chance, stop in, and see for yourself. They cater to all food types, regular diet, vegetarian, and vegan. Lots of gluten free fare as well. It is well worth a... More
