Located in the heart of downtown Knoxville is Cafe 4, a pioneer of modern food and drinks

An urban retreat

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 hospitality and high quality local fare to the heart of Market Square. Our recipes and menu items are brought to life with much attention to detail, flavor and presentation. Our core value of serving with excellence is executed from the kitchen right to your table. 

It is our great pleasure to announce the grand opening of The Mezz - Cocktail Lounge at Cafe 4. We make handcrafted cocktails. What does that mean? It starts with the right spirits and the right glassware. We hand squeeze fresh juices from lemons, limes, oranges and grapefruits. Our beverages are made according to tradition. What should be shaken is shaken and what should be stirred is stirred. To add complexity, depth and taste, we make an array of infusions, syrups and mixers... all in-house. Finally, we take extra care with our garnishes to insure your cocktail is an experience, not just a drink. 

Swing by for a cup of locally roasted coffee, a hand crafted cocktail or dine with us. You're sure to be greeted with southern hospitality and urban flavor.
