Description: Cafe 4 entered the downtown scene almost a decade ago, truly becoming a pioneer in Knoxville's substantial urban revitalization. Unbelievable to those who have only seen Market Square in its enlivened state, downtown Knoxville was anything but desirable at the time of Cafe 4's founding. The restaurant was birthed from a desire to bring light to a dark place, and the transformation that has taken place since has been truly remarkable. The front doors open up to the restaurant and a cozy mezzanine bar that is frequented by coffee drinkers, cocktail lovers, conversationalists, and passers by. The back of the building is home of The Square Room, an elegant space used for concerts and events. Swing buy for a cupcake, a cup of locally roasted coffee, or have a seat at the cafe. You're sure to be greeted with southern hospitality and urban taste.

Cafe 4 has several choices for seating depending on your preference... modern indoor area, outdoor patio and a separate mezzanine for drinks and appetizers. Inside their lobby they also have a to go counter for baked goods and coffee. The menu has a varied selection to suit most tastes and they also have daily specials.

My family and I enjoyed. My 20 something daughters had the salmon and brussels, it was soooo good, I stole a bite. My chicken salad with beets was yummy. My hubby enjoyed the sirloin caprese, he was quite happy too. Service was good, we didn't feel rushed at all and it was game day.

Excellent Saturday morning brunch. Perfectly situated on Market Square to relax and watch the activity of the shoppers and vendors.
It is a popular place so there may be a wait.

The food here is always great. The service has been spotty, but usually passable. I wish the breakfast menu was a little more eclectic. For lunch and dinner, this place is a culinary gem. For breakfast... ya basic.

This restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating. There is also a parking garage a block away. The food is very good. They serve both down home basics (tomato soup with a grilled cheese sandwich for dunking) and creative (lobster flatbread) meals. You cannot go wrong with this menu--sooo much to choose from... I thoroughly enjoyed my tomato soup and grilled cheese. The sandwich included several different types of cheese and was served on sourdough bread. While this was listed as an appetizer on menu, it was by far a full meal for me. The food is fantastic and the prices reasonable. I highly recommend this restaurant.
