4Square is expanding its River Market presence to include on-demand all-vegetarian foods, in addition to the convenience store items its already been selling. The new deli counter is called Garden Square Cafe, and its menu includes veggie wraps, sandwiches, salads, smoothies and desserts. Garden Square Cafe will also serve breakfast items — a deviation from the 4Square menu. Some menu items of the two cafes will be the same, but there will also be some items only available at one or the other. Garden Square Cafe will also stock bottled drinks, cigarettes and some health and beauty items.
Rashmi Jain, owner of 4Square and Garden Square, said that they opened the cafe, despite having another cafe across the street, because the River Market draws a different crowd and more foot traffic.
