I love Market Square so just about every business there is a fav of mine. Cafe 4 is just an awesome restaurant. The service is superb, and food choices great. Casual, mainstream and they have a nice patio on the square. Also have yummy treats to take out.

I really enjoying going to Market Square any chance I get, but when I have to take someone there who has never been there before, we always eat at Cafe 4. It is a very hip, trendy place that has something for everyone. The Mac n' cheese is great!

Market square is a great place to shop/dine downtown. Cafe 4 has a wide selection of causal food options. Macaroni and cheese dishes are a MUST TRY!

Was in Knoxville on business - saw Cafe 4 was well reviewed and close to my hotel. The Market Square area of downtown Knoxville is very nice. I walked from the Hilton over for dinner. Despite being pretty busy I was seated quickly. I ordered their low country shrimp and grits - one of their signature dishes. It was very... More

We were seated right away at a booth near the front door. We were hungry so we didn't wait for something better. The restaurant was fairly crowded and we were helped fairly quickly. Our server was very efficient. I found a black bean vegetarian burger that they make on site that was very good. I had a side of sweet... More

Draft imports were half price the evening we ate there. The outdoor dining was full, and even though it was a chilly evening, the heat lamps over the porch seemed to keep it very warm. The food was very plentiful, and well done. I had fried tomato and grilled cheese. Was well done, and more than I could eat. Great... More

I was recently on a business trip to Knoxville and decided to stop in on the recommendation of a local I ran into on the street. I wasn't disappointed. The food was excellent, the portions were more than enough and the server was pretty good. I had a chance to sit outside and it was refreshing! A great place to... More
