I had the turkey club that the waitress recommended. It had a great mayo and apple chutney on it. It was served on a most delicious foccacia bread. This was a great and different sandwich, which pleased me. I don't go to a restaurant for a typical sandwich I can make at home. My daughter had chicken marsala that was... More

Wonderful cafe, the food and service was excellent very reasonably priced especially for the quality of what you get. Enjoyed sitting outside and seeing the sights of the town square has a very homey and Old Town feel. Can't wait to come back.

We were in town just for the day and stopped at the Tourist Information Center to inquire about a nice place for lunch and was told to try The Square Market & Café. What a gem of a restaurant. Everything was fresh and delicious. Wait staff were friendly and efficient as the place was very busy.

This is the place to lunch in Columbia. You can't beat the soup and sandwich combos. Atmosphere is great, as is the service.

Six of us were here on business. Checked TripAdvisor and away we went to Square Market & Cafe for dinner. Cute place tucked away in the corner of the square in the center of town. With all of us wanting separate checks, you'd think the server would have been less than thrilled. Not so! Despite changes in orders and additional... More

The food and service are very good. The food here is so fresh and tasty. The bread is awesome and the salads are crispy and fresh with a large selection of dressing. We have tried the Chicken Marsala which was so good and the Rachel yum!!! The deserts are great too. We will be back.

This is one of my favorite places in Columbia to take a guest out to lunch. The food is delicious and a definite asset to the town's restaurants. Although I find the dinner menu pricey due to its gourmet nature, the lunch menu is more affordable. The decor reminds me of those restaurants we found in the UK, Belgium &... More

This is a great place to eat on the square in Columbia, TN. My favorite sandwich is the Judge's Turkey Steamer on a wheat roll. They steam the turkey and cheese together with some pesto mayo. Salads are wonderful here too. Love the fresh pear salad & also the salad with cherries and candied nuts. Dinner is even better. Wonderful... More

This corner cafe located in the square of Columbia, TN, greets you with a red and white awning! Its menu is packed full of choices such as sandwiches, pasta, salads, etc. It has indoor and a few outdoor tables. The atmosphere is welcoming. The prices are reasonable. I would definitely eat here again.

The locals we were visiting suggested this place. They eat there often. Everyone in our party loved all of their food. Try the Tennessee Hot Brown, it is really good! Staff was also very friendly.
