One of my favorites, depending on crowd you might have to wait a while so you need to get reservations for dinner. Also remember food done right takes a little longer. I love everything I have ever eaten there, but I wish they would bring the catfish back on friday night.

Great game day brunch for my husband and me. I had the Smoked Salmon Scramble with egg whites, (delicious and portions were perfect) and the server was very attentive and adered to any request I had. We sat outside and the amibiance was lively but not loud. I personally would choose this over Tupelo Honey. Will defintiely be back!

When he brought our friends there who were visiting from New York and they absolutely loved it!! We had the salmon with grilled brussels sprouts and carrots and it was probably the best I've ever had!!! The macaroni and cheese is also divine!!!! This is my favorite restaurant in Knoxville!!! They are on the mark every single time!!!

The breakfast menu stops at 10:30. Our reservations were for 10. That left us little time for a brunch. When the lunch menu came on, I could tell the waiter was anxious for us to leave. We were offered no refills or service after that.
The food was very good. The menu didn't have much in the way of healthy choices though.
We loved sitting outside and watching Market Square in action. Don't like sitting inside. Much too crowded.
All in all, go earlier, sit outside and enjoy.

I never thought I would sing a place's praises because of oatmeal. But OH MY WORD it's so wonderful, the perfect balance of comfort and decadence. Also, the poached eggs are superb. Can't recommend this place for brunch highly enough.

Stopped in Cafe 4 on our way to Georgia. Ideally located to our hotel "The Oliver".
Service was excellent. The Mac & Cheese we shared was just okay. Bad choice on our part. Wine list didn't knock us out. Noise level was off the charts loud. Large party near us was boisterous.
Just because it wasn't our night shouldn't be held against Cafe 4. We'll give them another try and so should others.

Dined on Friday evening with good friends. Convenient reservation at bustling Market Square. Table was ready and we were seated promptly. Appetizing menu items. Very pleasant and attentive waitress.
Able to enjoy conversation with reasonable noise level.
Never felt rushed despite busy time. Menu offered range of prices with appealing selections.
Enjoyed the ice cold water decanter on a warm summer evening

Highly mediocre food, drinks, and poor service. The quality of the food was typical of an average fare. The selections were fairly limited and the drinks were bitter as made with cheap mixers and liquors. Will not revisit this restaurant again unless desperate for food in downtown Knoxville.

We had an early dinner here as we needed to get to a function later on. The food and service were exceptional! This was our first time dining here and if we're in the area again we'll definitely dine here again. Our server was very attentive and handled a special request very well. So nice to have servers that actually listen to you and make sure you're happy. Food was excellent and the variety on the menu was very good. Make sure you check out this restaurant if you're in the area, you won't be disappointed!

Fried green tomatoes were good, shrimp and grits were on point. My wife had half of chicken which was to much for her which worked out because the shrimp and grits was a little small. Great service, little loud because some kind of kid convention in town. That is what happens when you have reasonable prices definitely worthwhile.
This was my first time here. We met friends and sat outside on a beautiful night. The service was great and the food was delicious. We even got a cupcake for dessert which was to die for! Don't know if smoking was allowed or not but no one was smoking. I will be back.

Truffle parmesean fries amazing. Salads and entrees were delivered to table in timely fashion.The high quality of the Service and the food made our anniversary dinner a memorable experience. From check in to leaving everyone and everything was top notch.
Can't wait to come back.
