Square Bar Cafe opened this weekend and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve shared my obsession with the creative and picture-worthy desserts that have popped up in Orange County and Los Angeles and was wondering when San Diego would have one of its own– and now it finally does. The cafe offers a variety of trendy drinks and desserts including crepe cakes, cereal coated ice cream cones, ice cream macaron sandwiches and more. The walls are also decorated with fun murals and phrases, all perfect for taking photos in front of.
When I found out about its grand opening on Saturday, I knew I had to set aside some time to visit. But then they announced a soft opening earlier in the week and of course I couldn’t wait until the weekend. We visited during the soft opening and again during the grand opening. I’m pretty sure we’ll be frequent customers this summer.
Blueberry Macaron with Pistachio Ice Cream, topped with Cookie Crisp cereal
We’ve eaten a lot of macaron sandwiches, but for some reason adding the Cookie Crisp cereal just makes these sandwiches so much more adorable. They offer a variety of macarons and ice cream flavors to choose from and you can add a cereal topping for a little bit extra.
Cookie Crisp waffle cone, strawberry and pistachio ice cream, fruity pebbles topping
The cereal coated waffle cones are also quite creative. They offer several fun cereal ones, using a marshmallow cream to get the cereal to stick to the cones. I got Cookie Crisp again because it’s the one cereal I haven’t seen offered as often. I feel like I’ve already done Fruit Loops and Fruity Pebbles too many times. We really enjoyed the ice creams offered here.
Matcha Crepe Cake
I’ve been wanting to try other versions of crepe cakes after being disappointed with the one I had at Lady M. This one was quite good. The layers held up together well and the cream filling was light and not greasy.
Strawberry Hibiscus, Green Envy
We also got tried out two drinks. They come in regular clear plastic containers, or you can upgrade to a glass bottle for $1.50 extra. I really love how the drinks look in the glass bottles and I’m really enjoying these wings. They have so much detail in them, including pandas!
I love green tea drinks so I was happy to see them offer the green thai tea. It was so pretty as I started to shake and mix the layers. I often find green tea mixed drinks to be too sweet, but this one was just right for me. Mr. K really enjoyed his hibiscus which he found light and refreshing.
Overall, we enjoyed out visits to Square Bar Cafe and can’t wait to come back again. Things were pretty busy when we went during the Grand Opening, but the line moved fast and our orders came quickly. I’m so excited something like this has opened in San Diego.
