This is a great place to eat on Market Square. It has a creative menu, lots of variety, and everything is consistently well prepared. It is definitely a favorite!

Went for brunch and had to repeatedly ask for condiments and drinks. Horrible service. It's the service that makes the experience.

It wasn’t packed when we got there around 6:30 pm, but it was when we left at 8:30 pm. Our waitress was very helpful and attentive, making suggestions, pointing out who had what at the tables near us. We started with a green tomato stack and truffle fries which were both quite good. I had the parmesan scallops which were... More

There were four of us and all liked our food. I had the roasted vegetable linguine that was outstanding! Everyone enjoyed their food. Service was excellent also.

Have dined at Cafe 4 several times with most recent being most disappointing. I had the special which was described differently than what I received - a chicken sandwich heavily breaded (yuk) on a plain pice of awful white bread accompanied by an average pickle. Will skip next time - better choices.

I read the reviews for this restaurant and very much wanted to try it out. It does only serve wine so you have to be prepared for that. I like wine so it was not a problem for me. The food was very, very good. I had the salmon and it was cooked to perfection and it came with sweet... More

We were here October 2010 then just again today October 2014 and we were thrilled as the same lobster Mac and cheese and shrimp & grits were on the menu and were as delicious as the first time we were here!!

Enjoyed our trip to Cafe 4. We were seated promptly and the restaurant was attractive. Our server was a sweetheart of a guy and very helpful. Our food was good but not fantastic. It's a good choice for couples and friends. The desserts looked great, but we didn't partake. All things considered I would return but probably lunch.

This was the second time I had eaten at Cafe 4. It's fun to walk around Market Square. This is very close to the Tennessee Theater, the Bijou, the East TN Historical Museum, Klutch Park. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed the food and service here. The restaurant is laid out so that you are not crammed against other... More

I wish that I had been able to sample bakery items as they looked wonderful, however this time, I only tried the cinnamon spiced hot apple cider. My companions had chai teas and enjoyed them. The restroom was tidy and clean. It's located way in the back. The space is large and multi leveled. We enjoyed sipping our beverages up... More
