Satch² (Gainesville, FL)

Satch² food feels like getting a warm hug during the holidays!  

Based on a single idea of serving square foods, Satch Squared is simple, no-frills, yet brilliant! I’ve been a fan of Satchels so I had to try Satch Squared and I can definitely say that I’ve been back many times! They serve Detroit style pizza with a thick, crunchy crust loaded with cheese and toppings and then covered with a strip of sauce.

Right when you walk into the store, you will be greeted with the smell of pizza. Their walls are lined with shelves full of eclectic toys, gadgets, Satchel’s famous salad dressing, and t-shirts you can purchase. You place your order at the counter and then you can wait inside or outside. I really like their Round Up For Charity Initiative. When I was there, they were offering the option to round up the total cost to donate to Meridian Behavioral Healthcare to help those struggling with mental health and addiction issues.

I’ve tried the square cheese ($11) with sausage, as well as mushroom and olives. The bbq tempeh is also really good! Each topping is an additional $1. They have vegan and gluten free options as well. The pizza comes in a box with 4 square slices, and it is definitely filling. I like to sprinkle some red pepper flakes to add a kick!

The waffles are delicious (full 4 pieces for $7, half for $4) as they are simple and flat, yet so buttery and soft. I recommend them if you like doughier, softer waffles. It comes with syrup and butter on the side. They also offer bacon and milk on the side if you are up for it!

I love how the owners source their ingredients locally, such as cheese, milk, and other products from Wainright Dairy and Rainbow Produce.

Satch Squared is perfect for a quiet night in, or a casual night out! They are open until 10pm Sun-Thurs and until Midnight Fri-Sat so they are available to satisfy your late-night cravings! It is part of the 4th avenue food park so they have a nice big outdoor area in the back. The outside area is great for social distancing, as well as enjoying a nice day or night with friends and family. They sometimes show movies or sports games on the screen so be on the lookout for events!
