The restaurant is called the Square Cafe because it is located in the Regent Square neighborhood around Pittsburgh. They are open from breakfast through lunch, even on weekends. The food is fabulous and very popular with the locals. They are constantly adding delicious items as daily specials which are often wonderfully creative milkshake flavors, pancakes, wraps, soups and other great... More

So glad you enjoyed your breakfast, we also love the outdoor seating this time of the year. I'm so sorry the service was slow, that's not like us. Thanks for the feedback and I'll check into what may have happened while you were here. Peace Sherree More

Awesome, thanks for coming in. I think you must have had the Green Eggs and Ham, right? House-made pesto scrambled with the eggs and topped with cheese. One of our favorites. Hope to see you and your daughter back. Peace Sherree More

Scrumptious green eggs & ham included 3 eggs with pesto (thus green eggs) and tasty ham steak with toast. If you are a big coffee drinker, get fresh, bottomless coffee as well. Also protein chocolate chip pancakes and crepes were enjoyed by other guests in my party. Staff was very attentive and friendly. Great way to start a day. 1st... More

they were very busy but were still able to accommodate a table for 10. Mostly soup, salads and sandwiches but good food and cold beer. Waiter helped me decide and steered me in the right direction. I hear they have a fantastic brunch.

Hey there Dalaetraveler..... Thanks for the review. We do have a fabulous brunch (if you ask us). The food was good, so glad to hear but....... we don't serve BEER. Maybe it was our ice cold water you loved so much. Come back when you're around and we will dazzle you with a fantastic S'moreo Milkshake or Banana Mocha Chillatte.... More
