Square One Cafe

Man... I've been busy lately. It's been a while since I've posted something. But that doesn't mean I haven't been eating! :P A few weeks ago I met up with some friends for dinner. They live in Flower Mound and I'm in Plano so we decided to meet in Lewisville. I came across a little cafe in downtown Lewisville that seemed pretty good.

Square One Cafe
136 W. Main St
Lewisville, Texas 75057
(972) 221-8200
Price: $

I've never been to downtown Lewisville. I might wanna check it out when it's bright out. By the time I arrived it was already dark. The cafe was pretty much empty when we got there. There was only 1 other table and they left soon after I got there. We ordered at the counter and they brought the food to our table.

The lady at the register turned out to be one of the owners. She was very nice. I took a look at the menu and wanted to try many things...

I ended up choosing a bunch of sides to make a meal since I had been doing a low gluten/sugar thing that week.

Dill Bacon Potato Salad $1.85~ (bottom) This was pretty good. A bit too much sauce though and the potato chunks should be bigger. Other than that I enjoyed it. 
Squash Medley with Mushrooms $1.85~ (top left) My friend and I really liked this. It was just sauteed on the flat top with herbs and stuff. But it had lots of flavor and the veggies were cooked well. 
Tarragon Chicken Salad $2.31~ (top right) I asked to try a sample before getting this. They make all their food in house. The chicken was very moist and tender and I love it when people put tarragon in chicken salad. It had large chunks of grapes, chicken, celery and cucumber I believe. I don't like celery but I was able to pick most of that out. I liked the addition of cucumber. I usually sub the celery for cucumber when making chicken salad at home. :) The sides were a good size for the price and filled me up.

One friend ordered the Sriracha Honey Chicken (grilled chicken, sriracha honey mayo, smoked Gouda, Applewood smoked bacon, spinach, avocado) $7.16~ The panini was really good. I had a small bite. It had lots of flavor and I definitely got the hint of sriracha. The bread was pressed and crisped nicely. Oh man... it was good to eat some bread after a week of not having any. hahaha.
She also got a Tomato Basil Soup (bowl) $4.75~ The soup was not bad. It reminded me a bit like spaghetti sauce though. haha. I tend to prefer chowders personally.

My other friend got the Square One Burger (1/2 pound all natural Kobe burger, Vermont cheddar, romaine, tomatoes, red onions, spiced mustard) $8.31~ The burger was pretty hefty. The beef patty had tons of flavor and was really juicy. I also really liked the bread. It held up the patty juices well.
They also got a side of the Hand Tossed Mac and Cheese $1.85~ Pretty simple with penne pasta in melted cheese but it was good. A good little side.

It's a pretty chill cafe with some yummy food. Good for a lazy afternoon with friends or families. They closed by 8pm but the owner told us we can take all the time we needed since she was in no hurry to leave. That was nice of her. She later came over to pick up the dishes and chatted with us for a bit. Apparently they are going to open a small market across the street in the coming months. They'll offer different craft beers as well as a kitchen set up where they'll do cooking demos and classes. That sounds so much fun! And they hope to have locally sourced eggs and milk and other stuff too. I look forward to that. Definitely need to go check it out once that opens. :)
