We study a massless real self-interacting scalar field $\varphi$ non-minimally coupled to Einstein gravity with torsion in (2+1) space-time dimensions in the presence of cosmological constant. The field equations with a self-interaction potential $V(\varphi)$ including $\varphi^{n}$ terms are derived by a variational principle. By numerically solving these field equations with the 4th Runge-Kutta method, the circularly symmetric rotating solutions for (2+1) dimensions Einstein gravity with torsion are obtained. Exact analytical solutions to the field equations are derived for the proposed metric in the absence of both torsion and angular momentum. We find that the self-interacting potential only exists for $n=6$. We also study the motion of massive and massless particles in (2+1) Einstein gravity with torsion coupled to a self-interacting scalar field. The effect of torsion on the behavior of the effective potentials of the particles is analyzed numerically.
