A nice small restaurant/cafe serving really nice food and fabulous coffee in a clean and fresh environment. Try the steak sandwiches for lunch. Located in the now trendy old Arnotts biscuit factory at North Strathfield. Worth the travel.

Hard to beat a Zenja coffee, go out of my way to grab one on the weekend and I generally have one everyday during the week. Food is always great, good size serves and something for all requirements. They are always busy around peak times but service is always prompt. Whether with the family, solo, business or a quick coffee... More

Once I saw the size of the servings I was more than pleased! Staff are more than attentive which was a nice change from other cafes around the area! Would most definetly return and recommend to...

What more could you ask for? This place is one of our favourite spots and... More

It is a shame Zenja does not open for dinner, so you have to... More

My husband and I came here for brunch yesterday and we had such a great experience. The staff were all really friendly and accommodating, and they all honestly looked like they loved working there, even though they were busy. The food was really great too. I had the corn fritters with poached egg and bacon ($17), and my husband had... More
