I always enjoy going to the Square Market. On this visit, my husband and I sat outside to enjoy the beautiful atmosphere. I had the Portabella Panini, which is divine. The server was nice and the service was fast.

I especially like their soups - it's hard to find somewhere that does a special soup rather than just "run of the mill". This restaurant does that. Salads are also a favorite of mine. I always try to eat here when I'm in Columbia

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Columbia. They have the best flavored tea, chicken salad coissants and chicken tortilla soup.

The cafe itself is very cute and you get a huge amount of food. But I thought service was slow and it seemed a little pricey.

I’ve visited this restaurant 4 times now and I’m never disappointed. The portabella panini is so tasty and the mushroom is huge. It has a great beefy/hardy taste. I’ve also tried the vegetable pizza, which was delicious & big enough for leftovers. My mom enjoyed...More

I have never had anything here that was not delicious, from soups to sandwiches to their homemade desserts. My all time favorite is the Hot Brown. Heaven (and probably heart attack) on a plate. I have only been for lunch, but I know they also...More
