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.

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!!

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!

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!

Have eaten two days in a row. Once For Breakfast AND It Was Delicious. Signature items were tasty. And once for dinner. Didn't know they had wine and beer and even cocktails. What a great surprise. Will be back.
