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.

Sat outside and Jesse was so our server. Had the buffalo blue cheese chips which were ok. Cesar salad, although no anchovies was very tasty, meatloaf and shrimp and grit were very good. My veggies, green beans a d roasted Brussels sprouts were wonderful. Take a pass on the bread and save the carbs. Sat outside and enjoying the Market Sq. ambiance.

This is a solid choice for food in the downtown Knoxville area. The atmosphere is pretty classy but the prices are very affordable. The food is not the absolute best available on Market Sq, but the bang-for-your-buck is up there. I've never been disappointed with what I've eaten here, and I've been four or five times. A solid 4 star place.

To run in and grab a handcrafted coffee is the best. There are also many pastry treats to go along with it. The restaurant is also absolutely wonderful and as a delicious menu of all sorts of items for every palate. Highly recommend if you're in the area! Also good place to take the kids- which is important because not every place downtown is appropriate for children.
