Jumping on the Square Cafe train for best breakfast. One of the few places a vegetarian has multiple options!

Square Cafe!!!! Amazing food and wonderful staff! Not to mention an owner that works the front counter, remembers names and faces, and loves her customers!

Square is good, though wish they had more vegan options. Wonder if Root will give them a push next year once their brunch is up and running for a while.

I love square cafe. Simply the best!

For totally delicious - Square Cafe - so glad it's in my neighborhood. For simple - I like Eat N Park at Edgewood Town Center. For most days - breakfast at home does it for me.

Are Square Cafe and Drews the only spots for breakfast? I rarely go out to eat breakfast but that doesn't give a lot of choice for Stephanie's poll. I could throw Katerbean out there. I have been known to grab a cup of coffee there when I'm out walking the dog. Maybe not a breakfast spot, but great to run in for coffee when you are out and about.

I agree that Square Cafe is great, but it's too expensive to go to on a regular basis for me. Likewise, I'm looking forward to Root 174's brunch, but that's also something I won't be able to do regularly because of the price. Are there any greasy spoons out there that are worth checking out? I heard JR's in Swissvale has breakfast, but I haven't been yet. It'd been great to find a real old-style diner somewhere in the vicinity where you could get a breakfast an a coffee for under $7.

Jodi B's in Forest Hills does as well and Root 174 just started to offer brunch on Sundays. There are lots of options out there!

Square has some unique menu items, but as Justin says, it's somewhat pricey for what you get. Drew's is great for regular breakfast items. The food is consistently good and the service is pleasingly fast. We also frequent Jodi B's on Ardmore. The food is good but is somewhat boring. But the prices can't be beat and there is never a wait.

Square Cafe for sure! Love my veggie omelet!
Tina April 24, 2012 at 12:53 AM
By far our favorite - always consistently excellent! As for price - you need to look at the high quality ingredients - always fresh & local when possible. They serve real whole Foods - NOT processed...

Hands down Square Cafe!!!
Phyllis Wetherby April 24, 2012 at 05:21 AM
Nancy's -- she even has grits.
Nettie Jane April 24, 2012 at 12:58 PM
LOVE the Square Cafe and if you wander outside of the square try Eggs n'at in Moon Township...
Joelle Kidder April 24, 2012 at 02:46 PM
