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

In terms of breakfast, this is one of our favorite spots. Among my favorite dishes are the smoked salmon scramble, crab cakes benedict, and the brussel sprouts hash. The coffee they serve here is also very good and the mugs they use are very unique and add to the experience.

I loved my first experience here this past weekend. My mom and I went at lunch time but still had the option to order breakfast food and we did. I had the Brussels sprouts hash which I read several reviews on and a Mama Said milkshake. Both were delicious! My mom had their famous crepes with Nutella and her choice... More

It is absolutely wonderful food here, fresh and tasty. The only trouble is this restaurant staff doesn't generally understood English well, so you can expect wrong order and bill here. We came to eat here twice.

Checked this place out last weekend with my friend who lives in the area. The inside is bright and cheerful--positive energy all around, I think. The staff were very friendly and genuine. The menu has a great mix of standard fare and unique choices for more adventurous eaters. Their lattes are famous--I wish I could remember the name of mine--Queen... More
