The restaurant is located in the Mount Washington area of Baltimore. We went for dinner on a Friday night. Nice selection of specials, regular entree's, sandwiches and burgers. You can also get breakfast all day on the days the are open in the evening. I was told they are local (as in the neighborhood owned). They were very busy but... More

Not a bad choice when at Cross Keys. I has the Curried Chicken Salad special. It wasn't bad but nothing better than that. At $10 it was rather small and could have used more mayo (in my opinion). The drinks are bottles and cans only. The tuna melt was on an English Muffin making it very small but tasty.

The cafe is quick and efficient. The coffee and Egg sandwich were great. Bagels were ok not the freshest.

A little jewel in the Cross Keys shopping district among very upscale stores and a boutique hotel. Great coffee and breakfast, wonderful music on sat. nite, friendly owners that seem to love what they're doing with this concept. The food was delicious as well. A very cozy and charming spot open breakfast, lunch & dinner!

Excellent place for Breakfast or Lunch at a very reasonable price. The portions are huge and so are their muffins!!! We 've eaten there several times already. Well worth it!

Was staying at the Radisson next door...the place is in an outdoor mall off the beaten path. Was surprised how good a breakfast they had between the selection & the great taste!

Nice atmosphere, being a dog-friendly outdoor cafe. Menu was interesting. Smoke salmon special was tasty. Greek omelet feta cheese was hard; cheese grits soupy (maybe some people like it that way); Both caffeinated and decaf coffees were watery! The birds however were delighted feasting on customer's plates between their departure and table clearing.

travelin5705, Owner at Village Square Cafe, responded to this review

Thanks for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that your meal was not entirely satisfactory. I wish you would have given us the opportunity to make things right when you were in the cafe. Hope you'll try us again another time! (As far as the birds go, it is -- unfortunately -- one of the hazards of outdoor dining!) More

Good food, reasonably priced, casual ambiance, umbrella tables outside, in the middle of a small shopping center convenient to both I-83 and Roland Park. A quick bite on the run is possible.

Thanks for stopping into our cafe. Please come back when you have more time to linger and enjoy the beauty of our outdoor patio seating when you're not "on the run." More
