On our way through and stopped for a snack. Great place on the Square. Had the fried green tomatoes and they were excellent! Enjoyed sitting outside with a view of the Square in a shaded patio area.

I'm sure they have many other great items on the menu, but someone recommended the cheesesteak sandwich. This was the best sandwich ever! I'm not big on fries but they went perfectly with the sandwich.

I was in Knoxville and discovered Cafe4 while walking around downtown. It has a convenient location on Market Square and an interesting menu, staying away from the cliché BBQ and pulled pork. I tried the Vegetable Linguini with some shrimp. The seasoning was very good and the shrimp were good sized. The patio was shaded from the sun and live... More

We were greeted and seated quickly on a busy Saturday with a Farmers market going on. The atmosphere feels upscale, but yet still casual. The food was great. We had brunch. My wife and I both had the chicken and biscuit with gravy. It looked great when it arrived and tasted just as good. Sorry we didn't take a pic.... More

Along the row of stores and restaurants in Market Square, Cafe 4 is a great choice for eating, listening to music and people watching. Lobster pizza (for 1), chili, and a Greek salad ran us $35. The food was very good. Our waitress Madison was pleasant.

Great food, great service, great drinks. We were celebrating my youngest daughter's graduation with a party of 15. A great time was had by all.

Some of the worst customer service and management I have ever seen. My husband and I's food both came out cold, so we asked for a manager to politely ask for a new one. Zach Smith was the manager's name- he was completely rude with an unacceptable attitude. I am someone who goes out to eat for an experience and... More

We had brunch on a Sunday and the food was delicious. Can't wait to go back! The portion sizes were more than enough. The food was fresh and full of flavor. No frozen food served here! Would highly recommend the chicken and Belgian waffles. We also had the grilled cheese dippers with tomato bisque soup.
