For the March 2021 episode of the QBurgh Podcast we are happy to be joined by Sherree Goldstein, the out and proud owner of the Square Café in East Liberty. Sherree talks with us about her experience as a small business owner making it through the pandemic, the Square Cafe’s commitment to sustainability, supporting their employees and the community, as well as her experiences as a member of the LGBTQ Community and motorcycle clubs. She also teases us with vivid descriptions of the delicious food they’re serving up at Square Café and did we mention mimosas with brunch!?!?
