Stopped in for a salad and saw the carrot cake in the display case - Had to have it- good choice it was delicious. The salad was great as well and the dressings are made in house - wonderful lunch - and plus! You can eat outside

It had been several month since we stopped by Square Market and Cafe in Columbia, TN. We were pleasantly surprised by two things: a wonderfully expanded menu and their Ruben sandwich actually was better (it didn't need getting better, but this one was superb). The shop has extended hours, but their normal day ends at 4:00, making it a lunch... More

Stopped for lunch while out for a drive and were very pleasantly surprised. The menu has several enticing vegetarian choices; I had the eggplant panini while my husband opted for the portabello panini. Both were excellent, as was the tomato artichoke soup. Service was friendly and efficient. We're already looking forward to our next visit!

We ate here because of the good reviews on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed. I had the tomato artichoke soup and it was excellent. We both had the square market sandwich which was good.

Trip advisor is my go to place to find good food in strange places. It hasn't let me down yet and this was no exception. WE went for a late lunch after sightseeing. The place was really bustling, great variety of choices and prompt, efficient service. I had the Rubin and my husband had the chicken salad, both excellent. The... More

Good food but it is expensive. It is a great place to eat lunch or dinner. The atmosphere is quite. The restaurant is very clean and the staff is friendly.

Food was very good, service was pleasant and efficient, sweet tea was very good and wait staff kept glass full. Prices seemed a little high. All in all it was a great dining experience.

Love this restaurant. Everyone I have brought here has loved it. Mostly we have lunch but sometimes they have entertainment at night so we will go for dinner. Columbia downtown is so picturesque.
