Yes, I may just have found the best breakfast spot for my tastes. I don't give out many 'Excellent' reviews but this place blew my mind. There were a lot of things I wanted to try on their menu, but I settled for the Vegetable Benedict. Oh my jelly! It was game changing. I could eat that everyday. Grilled veggies,... More

First found Square on trip advisor and was not disappointed. Great menu. Great service. Limited seating and a wait is likely but so worth it. Been here several times and always good. Coffee is also wonderful.

What else could go wrong. First the waiter told us that egg dishes would have a $175 surcharge due to the egg shortage. Considering eggs are $2 a dozen it seemed a little excessive. The vegetarian omelet arrives with a few vegetables over cooked and with cold potatoes. The dry toast requested was buttered. So a lousy breakfast for 2... More

YIKES- Thanks for being honest we do appreciate everyones feedback. And I'm so sorry you were so unhappy with us. We have taken the surcharge off of our egg dishes as of this past weekend but that damn Avian Flu increased our prices x3 for a couple of months and we felt we had to do something just for the...

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 straight there to meet friends.

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.
