This morning, my girlfriend and I decided we wanted to try someplace new for breakfast. After picking up some subs from Triangle Grill, we headed for Square Cafe.
One of the reasons I haven't eaten here before and really explored the Regent Square area very much is because parking is such a hassle. But lady luck was with me this morning as a spot opened up in front of the place just as we were approaching.
They are very popular and we ended having about a 15 minute wait. No problem, we drank delicious mint hot chocolates to kill time. Once seated, we looked around and noticed what other tables were eating and almost everyone was eating the pancakes. So that is what Bonnie ate and she really enjoyed them. I went for one of the specials which was an omelet with spinach, goat cheese and sundried tomatoes. The bacon was ultra thick and crispy, while the home fries were crunchy on the outside and had a creamy interior.
As you can guess, by the food and location, this is more of a yuppie type place than a workingman's joint. But the food and service were well above average, so no complaints. My girlfriend informed me we will definitely be coming back!
Oddly enough, one of the items available on the menu was that Rhode Island specialty, Johnnycakes. I don't think I have ever seen them anywhere else on a menu in Pittsburgh. http://www.square-cafe.com/
