After announcing its move from Regent Square (where the restaurant has operated for the last 17 years) to East Liberty in early August, Square Café has set an opening date for the new location. On Oct. 1, the popular breakfast and lunch spot will open with a full menu and an open-air rooftop in the space formerly housed by BRGR and Spoon. The menu will have Regent Square favorites, like breakfast burritos and pancakes, as well as some new items. By the end of the year, owner Sherree Goldstein hopes to obtain a liquor license. square-cafe.com
The café’s sister shop, My Goodness Market, will be taking over the vacated space in Regent Square. mygoodnesspgh.com
