Had a great experience. Service was great. Lilly (trainee) was wonderful. We never had an empty glass. Buffalo blue cheese chips appetizer was excellent. Spicy and not short or overdone on the toppings. We had huevos rancheros and lobster crab eggs benedict. Poached eggs done correctly on both entrees. The lobster and crab were a little more blended than I preferred. Not bad at all, I just prefer a little more texture from the lobster. We won't hesitate to recommend Cafe 4 to friends and colleagues. Looking forward to another visit and trying other menu items. First visit was definitely positive.

My wife and I have dined here several times alone, with friends and family. The menu is easy to read and the food is awesome. I would like to see outdoor dining reservations if possible.

Seated right away at 5:30 on Friday. Small plate scallops special with collards was divine! Large portion of salmon with veggies also wonderful. Macarons were light and airy (gluten free too) and hubby loved his rich-looking chocolate peanut butter thing! Sangria tasty but tiny glass filled with ice was disappointing. Overall great evening!

Food and service were great. Disappointed that we were sat in the overflow area - lost quite a bit of the atmosphere. Something to consider is to provide something special for folks in that area - since there was a piano on the stage you could have offered live background music to improve the ambience. Special night was made a little less special.

Thoroughly enjoyed Sunday brunch at Cafe 4. There were numerous options from which to choose and all looked delicious. The fried green tomatoes were among the best I've eaten. Our server was extremely friendly and attentive without being invasive. We sat at a window so had a great view of those enjoying a warm Sunday afternoon in Market Square. We will definitely be back.

This was my first visit to Cafe 4 and I was not disappointed. The food was delicious, delivered in a reasonable time period, and piping hot. I recommend the Herb Seasoned Half Chicken-superb! Nice wine list, great cocktails, and delicious Bread Pudding and coffee for dessert!
