About Us

Trio Café is a fast-casual restaurant located in the heart of Knoxville's Historic Market Square district serving breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week. Since 2007 Trio has evolved with Market Square and the burgeoning Knoxville downtown to offer a dining experience that is quick and easy but also cost-effective and delicious, all in a relaxed and welcoming environment. From homemade soups, hand tossed salads and stuffed potatoes to fresh burgers, hot pressed paninis and slow-smoked barbeque, Trio's menu is made fresh to order and covers an array of dining options.

With the addition of Sunset Bar in 2015 Trio continues expanding and improving to meet the needs of the modern customer by implementing the latest in food service technology. Upon entering the restaurant guests visit the soda fountain or Sunset Bar, seat themselves and then place orders with a friendly mobile cashier operating a tablet equipped with state of the art point-of-sale software. There are no wait times and no dedicated servers; rather, our entire staff is dedicated to your service. So if you're seeking gourmet breakfast, quick lunch, delicious dinner or just a spot to kick back with a drink after dark in downtown Knoxville, Trio has you covered.

Trio’s Amazing Transformation!
from the Inside Knoxville blog, January 20, 2015

At seven years old (she compared it to the seven-year-itch in a marriage), she felt the restaurant needed updating to take it into the next seven years as a modern, appealing restaurant. In a sense, the previous set-up was an odd arrangement. I’ve watched more than one person walk in over the years and not quite know what to do. Salad to the left, a counter to the right and a corridor leading to the back often gave people pause. It’s much simpler, now – and very different.
