Bistro in the Square is Hamburg’s newest eatery. The square, as Hamburgers know, is Staub Square at the circle (Buffalo and Main Sts.). Opened by the same “Team” as Buffalo Street Grill and Buffalo Sports Bar, they are offering a unique spectrum of dining options – breakfast foods, sandwiches and small plates. All of which go oddly well with their tempting selection of cocktails, wines and beers. Situated in the center of the village, I suspect trips to the post office just got longer and more frequent. Breakfast all day is the message you need to remember, served with hash browns, cheddar grits or fruit cup and toast.- but not just your standard ham & eggs…and not just breakfast. For the adventurous how about:
- Bunch Wrap – sausage or bacon, jalapeno and cheese on a flour tortilla $5.99.
- Breakfast Burrito- egg, tomato, jalapeno and cheese on a flour tortilla when a side of pico de gallo $5.99
- The Veggie- scrambled egg, spinach, avocado, and cheddar on a bagel – $5.99
- The Breakfast Stack – egg, bacon, tomato and spinach with maple aioli – $6.99
More in the traditional breakfast fare column you’ll find: Eggs Benedict ($7.99), Sausage and biscuits ($7.99), Corned beef hash- house made ($6.99, Savory buttermilk pancakes ($5.99), Cinnamon crunch French toast ($5.90), eggs and omelets. You’re not in the mood for breakfast food? Not to worry. Bistro in the Square has all sorts of goodies to keep your interest. Salads – five to choose from ranging in price $8.99 to $11.99 including Cobb salad, Seafood salad, Classic Waldorf salad, Poached Pear salad and Julianne salad. Sandwiches and wraps:
- Roundabout Ruben- house corn beef, sauerkraut, thousand Island dressing, melted Swiss on Rye $8.99.

A nice selection of wine, beer in the bottle and on tap adds to the spirited atmosphere. I’d be remiss if I didn’t tell you about the mixology end of the spectrum. Of course the Bistro has a full bar, but they’ve taken the time to create a nice list of cocktails to whet your appetite: Classic Manhattan, Algonquin, Blinker, Dandy, Rye sour, Champagne Cocktail, Mimosa, Vodka Martini, Breakfast Martini, Cosmopolitan, Gimlet, Screwdriver, The Bistro Bloody Mary, Moscow Mule (complete with the copper mug – a must try). Check out the photos below for a full description of each. Bistro in the Square is another fine addition to Hamburg’s growing list of “let’s have some fun with our food” restaurants. Check it out for yourself. On top of everything else they offer a great spot to people watch.
