After a long day of the proverbial “running and gunning,” plus several hours on-the-road, it was a pleasure to find a gem of a restaurant— the Village Square Cafe in the Village of Cross Keys in Roland Park (Baltimore). The first ray of sunlight from...the cafe was it’s co-owner (with her husband), Roseann Glick. Then, there were our omelettes, perfectly and plentifully prepared. I didn’t look at the entire menu of sandwiches, pizzas, and salads, because my omelette was a daily special, but I know we want to return when we are back in the area.More

I have a monthly 7:30am breakfast meeting and we have been eating here over the last year and enjoying it. The food is simple but tasty, the servers are pleasant, and the atmosphere is warm and inviting-- lots to love here! I especially like the...sausages (nice and juicy) and cheese grits.More

Thanks! So glad to hear that we’ve become your meeting “go to” spot. Our convenient location & plentiful free parking makes us a great choice for breakfast meetings. Please come back and try us for dinner and weekend brunch as well.

We were out of town visitors staying in the “very terrible” Radisson next door. Definitely didn’t want to give the hotel our business so tried the Village Square Cafe. We were pleasantly surprised. Nice sandwiches. Good wine (a bit pricy). I love the outside tables...under the big locust (?) tree. Lots of chirping birds. Lovely. We went back for breakfast which had far too large portions for me. Sorry the coffee was not to my liking but I live in Italy and am used to very strong and SMALL coffees. The US has bathtub sized cups. Finally we returned for another very yummy lunch. We really enjoyed this place and were happy it was just outside the hotel doors. I also noted all the obviously neighborhood people of all ages which was nice.More

We ate breakfast here two mornings, and had great experiences both times. We tried both the baked goods and hot breakfasts, and both were excellent. Service was very good, and both the indoor and outdoor seating was comfortable and attractive. The Cafe seems to have...a good mix of 'regulars' and visitors from the hotel next door.

Took my visiting family members for lunch. Except for the grilled cheese sandwich, everything was stale and dried out. I was very embarrassed.
