The women at the counter was so friendly and helpful! The food came out soooo fast! I can not say enough how delicious the... More

We stopped for lunch in this quaint town. The food and service were great. It was a little hard to grab a table as it's you order from the counter then try to find a seat. Lol! We were able to sit at a counter near the door. One of us stood up. I didn't mind because of having been... More

3 Squares is justifiably known locally for its excellent breakfasts and lunches. Staff is friendly with table service after ordering at counter. New digs are more commodious, though the popularity of the 3 Squares might cause a short wait. Lunch sandwiches are large and food quality is top notch.

Quaint atmosphere, coffee is very good but had to ask for bar to be refreshed. Order at counter and wasn't impressed they asked for tip before any service or food. Also not impressed waitress brought my food out (and didn't know if I should wait at counter or sit) while talking on her cell phone and didn't talk to me.... More

We had three lunch orders and one breakfast and everything was great. Fresh salads, real roasted turkey panini was great, burger was really good and all the breads were homemade and fresh.... More

We came here as a party of four on a busy Saturday morning. Fortunately we arrived in time to snag a table, although it was the table closest to the drink cooler which was annoying when inconsiderate patrons kept bumping into the chair of one of our guests. The service could've been better. While we understand turnover time, I was... More
