The menu has something for nearly everyone.In the mood for something sweet? Square cafe has you covered. Try any of the dectant pancakes offered – from buttermilk to lemon berry ricotta. The Brioche French Toast, paired with a cup of freshly brewed coffee, is basically the solution to any Sunday scaries ever ( not proven, but we’re pretty sure.) More of a savory brunch person?
