Can't get enough of this place. Love the flatbread and the fish tacos. Service is always top notch and if you see a beer or wine you want to try, they'll give you a tasting. Awesome

I tend to be a regular here... I love the food and the service is on point. I usually get the grilled chesse and tomato soup which is amazing! The chickena and waffles is out of this world and one of the dishes they are best known for. Also I've order the pecan crusted fish a few times and I've... More

The catfish is great! Good flavor and breading. Real crispy. The fried green beans are fantastic. It's not cheap, but really good!

Was here for dinner on a Thursday evening. I think our waiter may have been new, as he didn't know answers to several questions about food specials, beers available, etc. But he was friendly and could tell he wanted to help. I had the salmon, which was prepared well. The pre dinner rolls were also very good. Overall, a good... More

I love that this restaurant has a special every night of the week. We were there on a Friday evening and the special was fried catfish. It was delicious. Since Cafe 4 is in the Market Square, it is always busy and bustling. We enjoyed every minute that we were there. The staff was so friendly and asked us several... More

Cafe 4 has a unique vibe that highlights the Market Square location. They have a front counter, where you can buy snacks and treats. The dining room has a more snug set-up that carries through with the "happening" vibe. I thought it was really hard to hear my friends across the table, because of the tighter set-up. The food was...

We arrived at 8:15 and were greeting by friendly staff, they took our number to text us when a table was ready. While we waited, we sat upstairs in the loft area that was decorated with eclectic furniture and large comfy chairs and sofas. No more than 15 minutes later we were seated. We ordered drinks that came to the... More

I've been to Cafe 4 several times over the past three years, mostly in the mornings, occasionally in the afternoon, and once for dinner when the hamburger was a special. The hamburger was nothing special, but the service in the dining room was good. It's the baked goods that bring me to the computer today. The cupcakes are sugary, not... More

Visited on a Sunday morning for breakfast and unfortunately poor service tainted my view of the restaurant. After watching patrons be seated, look over the menu, receive their food well after I placed my order, I asked the waitress to check on my party's food. She had forgotten to put in the order. People continued to be seated, review their... More
