The Village Square Cafe is a modest, bright and spotlessly clean place in Roland Park with few pretensions. It understands that delivering the right experience must begin with the owners and run down the line to servers, cooks and bus boys. It seems like a simple credo for success, and here, they do it well.
The one sandwich I invariably order is the Rachel. I don’t know who Rachel is, but I’d love to have this sandwich named after me. It has hand-carved turkey on tender rye with terrific cole slaw and Russian dressing — as with all dressings here, house-made.
I alternate that with the hand-carved turkey club ($8.95), which has the same turkey, crisp hickory smoked bacon, swiss, lettuce, tomato and a garlic aioli that I could eat with a spoon.
