“Great Food and Great Prices!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Super good food, and the prices are very reasonable for such a trendy restaurant in a super desirable location in Market Square! Great place for a date, but a little crowded for families with small children. Since you are sitting right on top of your neighbors, the kids can be a distraction to those around you. GET A CUPCAKE ON THE WAY OUT BECAUSE THEY ARE AMAZING!!!!

“Great food, good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Have been there a couple of times w my daughter. Love the fries with parmesan and truffle oil but unless there are three or more people sharing this or that's all you are eating, you will never finish it. Worth it anyway for the price. The salad with strawberries, blue cheese and some type of vinagerette dressing is to die for. Add grilled chicken (very generous portion, cooked perfectly) and you are in heaven. Staff is courteous and prompt. Atmosphere is nice. Prices are very reasonable.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

I had the shrimp and grits and my hubby had jalapeno chicken mac and cheese. We both loved our meals. The place has a very cool vibe and the wait staff was very friendly and attentive. It was reasonably priced as well.

“I like this place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Out of towner on business travel. Ate there twice and the food has been good. Was alone and was seated outside in the evening. Shrimp and grits...OK, interesting preparation. Second time had a entree salad (Salmon with blue cheese, etc...) Great. Large salmon fillet, much bigger than expected nicely cooked and it melded nicely with the goat cheese and mixed greens which were very fresh. Great orange vinagrette. Wines are priced OK, not to cheap Overall this place is above average. Would recommend it.

“May I make a suggestion?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

I enjoyed the menu at Cafe 4 and thought my feta cheese and artichoke flatbread was flavorful.BUT... I was disappointed that the artichoke was too woody to eat and all the toppings were slapped on the bread without being chopped up. This is a good place to try for lunch, but ask the staff if they made these suggested changes before getting the flatbreads.

Cafe 4, if you read these posts, have your kitchen staff chop up the spinach and artichoke so customers don't have to disassemble the dish to eat it. Oh, and get another supplier of your artichoke.
