Three of us had the chicken and waffles and one of us had the burger. We all loved every bite. It's at a great location in Knoxville's Market Square.

Opted for Cafe 4 for a late lunch on a weekend and had no problem getting seated. Service was prompt and friendly and food was very tasty. The flatbread was a little smaller than expected but the flavors were very good.

Very nice restaurant. A little puzzled by the wait with empty tables, but we decided to wait. Understood why, once we were seated... this is not a very large place, but well worth the 25 minute wait. Both of our dinners were great, with great service. We thought the cost was very reasonable. Small plate fish tacos came with 3... More

Cafe 4 is a stylish restaurant on Knoxville market square. It is a stylish space and offers a first class dining experience. I had the low country shrimp and grits. It was a large dish that more than filled me up. Prepared with sausage, red peppers, onions, tomatoes, goat cheese, and a Cajun cream sauce is a spicy and presents... More

We have eaten here many times. Service is always excellent. They even have outdoor tables, so you can bring your dog with you to eat. Everything on the menu is great!

I visit this restaurant on a regualr basis when I dine in Downtown Knoxville and it consistently serves excellent food and in my opinion is the best restaurant on Market Square.

I had give a great review in the past on this establishment and I must say the quality for the price has changed for me - from lukewarm food to prep not consistent with wording in the menu and lack of flavor there are better choices on Market Square. Portions have also changed. Try Tomato Head, Honey Tupelo, or Stock... More

The recipes of this restaurant are excellent! Being located near a small university, most of the servers are not career servers, but students looking for extra cash. The service is lacking on many occasions at this establishment, but the food never disappoints!

Good menu, solid service, nice atmosphere. We've only been there for breakfast but I looked at the menu and it seems decent for lunch and dinner. I'll go back.

Knoxville was a meal way station for us on a cross-country trip. What a treat to stop somewhere so tasty and lovely for lunch, well worth the 20 minute wait! My husband and I split the shrimp and grits, which was good because it was so rich (and amazing) that it would be too much for one person. We each... More
