Whenever I'm uptown I treat myself toThyme Square for lunch. The first time I walked into this restaurant I noticed how roomy the place feels. The service was the best . . . I highly recommend to anyone who wants an enjoyable and relaxing experience.

Excellent food but the service was slow. We missed the breakfast menu but when I tried to order a la carte, (which was on their lunch menu) of two eggs and a side of bacon, the server told me that I can't have that because "breakfast" is over. Then why have an a la carte menu if you can't order... More

No matter where you come from, the corned beef hash is a genuinely superb take on an unforgettable classic. The crew that helms this location from side to side is exceptional - wish they had a closer locale to Marietta GA.

Thyme Square is the best restaurant in Quincy hands down. The food is beyond good, beyond what other restaurants have to offer. Their food is what I imagine fancy New York restaurants to serve. Thymes Square uses locally grown, fresh ingredients. They have handmade desserts. I can keep going, but you should just try it yourself and see!!

Thyme Square Cafe, how do I love the, let me count the ways!! Great food, freshly and locally sourced, excellently prepared and thoughtfully presented. Beautiful new location accommodates the growing crowd of devoted followers of Chef Cory Shupe...he and his minions prepare every dish with the same concern for the customer...every item on the menu is a treat!

Excited to get to come back on another football trip to find they had expanded their site and their menu!!! The seasonal pumpkin soup was superb, turkey sandwich was perfect and the... More

Went there at 1:15 and we still waited 30 minutes for a table. The new location offers much more room. Delicious cauliflower soup pureed. It would have been nice to see a chuck of cauliflower . My husband ordered a craft beer. He asked the waitress if it had fruit since it said fresh squeezed. No, she said it was... More

We were in Quincy over the weekend for an annual girls trip. Last year we at ate at the cafe in their previous location. We ate lunch there on Saturday and it was quite crowded even though the size of this location is probably 3 x larger then the old. We had sandwiches and their bacon potato salad and we... More

What an amazing restaurant! Spectacular food, obviously someone who loves food owns and operates this! New location, simple, lovely, comfortable. I tried the country eggs Benedict and it was delicious! Fresh squeezed juice, a must have. Looking forward to going back (7 hour trip) to try dinner and drinks!

The owners did a fabulous makeover of the place. The bar is enormous and there is a cocktail menu. We had really good Bloody Mary's. It took a long time to get our food when it was very crowded, but the staff is working hard to smooth out logistics.
