“Enticing cafe' in Market Square”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Actually the second time I've eaten here. Both times were great. This time I order the veggie panini that comes with portabello mushrooms, red peppers, spinach, and Havarti cheese. They come with kettle chips and I opted to exchange for fruit salad for an additional small fee. Very good sandwich and the fruit were sizable chunks of melon, pineapple, and orange. Definitely worth the money and a return visit in the near future. Service was good and a clean friendly atmosphere.

“Excellent salad options”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

This restaurant specializes in salads - You get a check-off list and get to choose anything from types of greens to dressing and add-ons. I am not even sure they offer anything else... The restaurant is in a nice location on market square (pedestrian only zone), and both indoor and outdoor seating is possible. Definitely a very nice alternative if you crave some lighter/healthier food.

“Good food and prices!”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Trios is great for breakfast or for lunch. Salads are particularly good, and you get to choose your toppings! The place is clean, and service is always very good. Market Square is a fun place to go, and Trios is one of our favorite places to eat. The breakfasts are quick and convenient on Saturdays during the farm market. Nice, clean cafe with good eats and very reasonable prices!!

“Eat and chat”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Trio is a great place to meet up for lunch or dinner where you can actually have a chat--not as noisy as some other Market Square venues. Offerings include build your own salads, burgers & baked potatoes. Also have soup, sandwiches, panini, etc. Everything I've had here has been good, and the staff is friendly. This is a sit down or take out restaurant, but you order at the counter and get your own drink, etc. so it is really casual and informal. Also I think it is open pretty late for a snack if you are out on the town or enjoying live music in the square. Patio seating is good, but as with most restaurants on the square, there is not a ton of it.

“Cooked to Order and Delicious”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

I discovered this restaurant while traveling on business in Knoxville. I had lunch in the restaurant itself and then ordered pickup online for dinner. The menu is fairly extensive and reasonably priced with lots of options to upgrade sides. Everything is cooked to order, so much so that I was able to order baked fries without salt (usually can't have fries in any restaurant due to salt). As soon as I walked in for lunch, a staff member greeted me and explained the setup of the restaurant and was there to ask questions. I very much liked this restaurant (bbq turkey is delicious) and wished there was something like it back home.
