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

The food was nice, the service was nice, the atmosphere was nice. No complaints, but I wasn't blown away. I had the scallops, the table also had shrimp & grits and the salmon. The only comment was that the shrimp & grits were better across the square. I recommend heading over on a night where you can sit outside and... More

We met friends there and had a great time. The menu was varied and all had good remarks on their food. From burgers to salmon it was great. Excellent service and friendly atmosphere.

Place was busy but service was still good under the circumstances. The salads are great and of course the grilled shrimp topping made them special. Don't miss the Philly Cheese on a fresh baked roll with grilled onions and peppers. Take a fresh baked loaf of bread when you go !!!

Cafe 4 was a fantastic place to eat a meal at Market Square in Knoxville. Read the other reviews of this place for more information, it's what got us to go out of our way to eat here. Unique menu and very healthy options. I enjoyed the Maple Pecan Salmon. It was so good! I usually don't even eat fish,... More

I stopped in for lunch, and as the weather was very pleasant, I elected seating outdoors. They have a very nice shady location on Market Square that is perfect for people watching. I was pleasantly greeted and seated promptly. I ordered the catfish and a glass of chardonnay. The everything was served within a few minutes, which is great at... More

We visited Cafe 4 on a weekend stay in Knoxville. It's a really hip place with a cool vibe. It has the appearance of a high dollar restaurant but is actually rather reasonable. All of that is good, but it's the food that makes Cafe 4. The menu is basically the best comfort foods you've ever eaten. BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger,... More
