“Great ladies lunch”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Wonderful soup and salad. I esp love the tomato bisque. I enjoy bringing out of town guests but don't come at noon. Come early or you won't get a seat. The staff is really nice.

“Pleasant Lunch Spot”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

My husband, daughter and I were traveling through Columbia, TN recently and stopped at the Square Market & Cafe after reading excellent reviews on the smartphone. This was a very pleasant find. The cafe is tucked into the corner of their lovely square downtown. Easy to park on the street, staff is very friendly and the food was excellent. We each had a half sandwich and soup combo for lunch. The special of the day was a shrimp po' boy and it was fresh and had good flavor. Soups are homemade and we really wish we had room for one of the homemade desserts we saw passing by! The owner stopped at our table to welcome us as she could tell we were not locals with our northern accents. She thanked us for choosing the Cafe and invited us back the next time we were near. Good food, average price, exceptionally nice people. A wonderful stop on a long road trip.

“Excellent Food!”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

When I want to have delicious lunch, I head to the Square Market. Delicious soups and sandwiches! Cute, quaint atmosphere, although it is a bit cramped. It's a good sign, though, that the place is always packed. There's a reason! Don't skip dessert!
