Café on the Square
11 South Paca Street, Baltimore, MD
Mon – Fri 7:00 am – 4:00 pm
For travelers visiting the Inner Harbor and vicinity, Café on the Square is a small, unimposing lunch spot across from the University of Maryland hospital complex. The surprisingly large menu is comprised of soups, salads, and sandwiches, but breakfast is also available. Although there is a reasonable amount of seating available in the café, most people grab their lunches to go. There will be a line if you go in during the lunch rush, but you’ll likely be as surprised as I was by how quickly it moves. Sandwiches and salads are made to order but are served almost instantaneously – it’s actually pretty amazing. Vegetarian options are also available. I had a turkey melt and was satisfied with the tasty, reasonable portions. It’s easy to see why so many Baltimore locals are frequenting Café on the Square for a quick, healthy meal on the go. Online ordering is available.
