Pleasant Surprise

My wife bought a groupon for Square, it was nearing expiration, being we live about 45 minutes away, I wasn't real excited about driving that far for a brunch. But we went, had to wait awhile for a table, I'm not very patient. I had the brussell sprouts and grits , my wife a burger. Absolutely... read more

I went here yesterday for my girlfriend's sister's birthday and it was a pretty good stop. I think I need to preface this review by saying I'm not much of a breakfast person especially at lunch time. That being said I ordered the club wrap. Which I though was just good. The food was very good quality but it didn't... More

Breakfast, brunch or lunch-always the best!!! Family friendly with a Regent Square vibe all it's own! Try the omelets or pierogies.

We spent the Thanksgiving holiday in Pittsburg with our son. This morning, before we headed homeward, we met him at the Square Cafe for breakfast. The staff was friendly. The service was top notch. The food was delicious. The decor was bright and cheerful. It was a happy end a great holiday.

I'm surprised! Great food. Interesting combinations and knowledgable servers. I've been continually blown away by the amazing range of food on the menu, most of it good for you too. Can't wait to eat there again.

Great breakfast spot. The food is good every time and they have many options to choose from. My only complaint is that it seems overpriced so what you actually get.

After reading all the good reviews we decided to stop in for breakfast on a trip to Pittsburgh. I was not impressed. I ordered the chicken crepes. They were ok. We also ordered the chocolate chip pancakes. They were very thin and you couldn't taste the chocolate. The food was just ok and the prices were high.

No matter what your preference is for breakfast, you're likely to find something on the menu for you at Square Cafe. An energetic, crowded place with tight seating, a good menu and well-prepared dishes.

Came here after a disappointing breakfast at Drew's. Vive la difference. Ambiance at Square Cafe is great, service is friendly and efficient, and staff & patrons smile a lot. Managed to (barely) beat the line and get a table right away, then dug into good coffee and some great breakfast entrees. First time had lemon-blueberry pancakes, next time veggie crepes.... More

This restaurant is a brightly colored small square room with tables outside as well, which looks like a cross between a diner and a cafe. It is not in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh but not that far from the colleges and worth the drive if you want exceptionally fresh and unique breakfast choices. When we arrived at 10 am... More
