“Great Saturday brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

Very good breakfast! I've been here twice! Once for breakfast and once for brunch. They have daily specials. I had a breakfast burger! AWESOME!! I wish they had it everyday! It was a burger with a fried egg. VERY delicious! Second visit I had the breakfast sandwich. Both were delicious! So far this is my favorite place in the Market Square.

“Fun, quick, casual”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

Like a local panera/cosi, you order up front and find a table. Menu selections were fresh and quirky flavor combinations. Food was delish, large portions. Fountain drinks and teas. Enjoyed burgers, melts, and pretzel apps. With lots of choices in square we were pleased with this choice. Very affordable too.

“Not as good as usual”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

We visit Trio quite often and have had good food in all our past experiences. Last night was the exception. I ordered the Turkey Avo pannini sandwich and there was hardly any avocado on it. My husband ordered a baked potato (usually a reliably good choice) and it was dry and just not very good. What a disappointment. I sincerely hope this was a fluke. We will continue coming at least for a few more visits. But please, Trio, if you read these reviews, check into what might have happened on the night of April 30! We depend on you for fast, delicious, fresh, reasonably-priced food!!

“Good food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

Had the Turkey Avo panini. It was delicious, but the staff stood out the most. Very friendly and eager to go the extra mile with service and to answer questions about the food. We're out of towners and would recommend this place to anyone!

“Good food, good service, reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

Trio Cafe is one of those reliable "go-to" cafes where the food is always delicious and it's usually a quick in-and-out. You order at the counter and food is brought to you when it's ready. I love their custom salads, the burgers, the pasta dishes, etc. etc. They also have beer and wine and fabulous bakery items like cookies, bars, etc. It's a great place to drop in when you're on the way to the movie or a concert in downtown Knoxville. Highly recommend!
