Awesome breakfast/lunch spot!

We used to live around the corner from The Square Cafe and loved grabbing brunch there. Lots of organic/vegan choices and a good size menu. The fries are excellent and we never ordered anything we didn't like there. Great coffee/tea selection as well. Whenever I am in Regent Square visiting I head... read more

Regent Square boasts some great little eateries and shops. Square Cafe tops them all! Sherree the owner is an amazing chef and her menu is out of this world. Always fresh, local ingredients. Outdoor seating available. This place is so awesome there's often a wait to get in.

We live about 200 miles away. We exited the Penn/Lincoln Parkway at the "Edgewood" ramp and a few seconds later, we were at the "Square." (Stands for Regent Square, another section nearby.) Exactly the kind of place you want in your neighborhood. Food very good and reasonable. Big selection. Staff friendly. So I wanted to give this gem some recognition,... More

Went with my son and husband for a quick father's day breakfast before heading back to Chicago. What a treat! The Corned Beef and Grits was delicious and if you are feeling adventurous try one of their coffee creations. Yum yum.

This is a great breakfast spot that offers outside seating. They use local organic products as much as possible and the breakfast is great.

We went after my medical procedure at the local hospital. I was famished and we had a Groupon. We have been there before Groupon and the coupon was a bonus.

I have only eaten at Square Cafe for breakfast, but oh - what delicious options there are in the morning. They have such interesting combos and seasonality to their menu; this past winter I loved their white bean hash and was sorry to see it replaced, but I know it wasn't a light enough dish for the warm weather coming...

Awe thanks Mary G- That White Bean Hash is an employee and customer favorite. It will be back. And keep your eyes on our social media pages, we often run the fall/winter favorites as specials in the summer. It's a warm feeling to have something that you love show up again when it's not expected. We serve breakfast and lunch... More

This place was recommended by Ty at the Parador Inn B&B. We went for lunch on a Saturday. It was hopping. Packed house. The other cafes in the street had one or two couples so we took this as a good sign for Square. I got the siracha shrimp wrap special and whooo doggie it was spicy hot! No complaints... More
