Square Coffee and Retail, Kildare Towns first Third Wave coffee bar, We feel it is a unique and welcome addition to the Square and town alike. Opened in December 2017 by Pam and Alan, Square offers a beautifully designed retail and gallery space alongside a speciality coffee bar. The shop was stripped back to just 4 walls and strategically designed and appointed to emphasise the beauty of the materials used, concrete, steel, wood and glass. At Square it's not only about the coffee, great coffee is just our standard. It’s the welcoming, enthusiastic team of baristas and the well designed, aesthetically pleasing space that combine to create an environment to enjoy while browsing or admiring the art while your espresso shot is being prepared.
We are massive advocates of supporting sustainability, fairly traded and local produce, our ethically sourced coffee is roasted locally in Naas by PS Coffee Roasters, which will always be Specialty Grade or above. Each shot is weighed, timed and measured to a specific recipe to ensure a consistently great coffee every time. We are currently working with four bakers and producers for our delicious accompaniments who are all based in Kildare town. As well as the best coffee in the neighbourhood, Square also offers an array of beautiful loose leaf teas from Wall and Keogh. Home brewers can browse through a comprehensive range of industry paraphernalia such as Chemex, Aeropress and V60. In Square we also stock a selection of whole beans which can be ground per your preferred choice of brewer.
The creative space will showcase artisan lifestyle goods that are selected on merit of design and craftsmanship that will rotate on a seasonal basis. We welcome and encourage local artists and designers to contact us regarding exhibition and possible collaborations.
This is just the beginning, believing that doing simple things well. making things tasty and being nice to people will be the secret to our success.
Square Coffee Bar and Retail Space is located in the Main Square of Kildare Town, we are open week days from 7.30 - 5.00, Saturday from 9.00 - 4.00 and Sunday from 10.00 - 4.00. Find us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
We look forward to welcoming you,

We have taken our time in researching potential coffee suppliers. This meant that we travelled far and wide tasting some really great coffees. In saying that it didn't take long for us to find the one that shot to the top of our list. What's more, they are just down the road! Our coffee is roasted by PS Coffee Roasters, Poplar Square, Naas. We also have a selection of loose leaf teas from the masters in Wall & Keogh, Portobello.
We strive to keep things local, and are proud to say that Kate O'D & The Carrot Cake Lady bake up a storm for us, Bernard at Gibney's Garden Preserves is truly jamming and Cate in Cupcakes by Cate delivers some of the prettiest little cakes you'll ever see.
We are proud of the great people we are working with and will continue to grow through what is available locally to us. If you are a supplier or think you might fit in to what we do, please feel free to drop in or contact us by email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
