Nice coffee shop

Helpful staff when I wanted something with no dairy and little or no sugar. Seating is close, but adequate. Easy location.

Sister-in-law let us know she was playing in a jazz quartet there so we joined her on a Saturday eve. Great relaxing jazzy music and drinks, and yes, including coffee at night. I would not have know this spot was there, located in the Brown Ranch market off Clares, just to the right of Trader Joe's and Bed Bath.

My favorite was the Mexican Mocha, and now it's the Mona Zizzo, but I love them both! Delicious! The owners are very nice and welcoming. It is comfortable, clean and has a nice atmosphere. We haven't tried the wine bar yet, but will. It's a cute place!!

This is a cute little what I believe to be family owned coffee shop located in the Brown Ranch Marketplace close to Bed Bath and Beyond. The Latte's are really good and there are a few tables inside or you can sit outside in the patio area. They also have punch cards so your 11th drink is free. Enjoy!

The coffee here was amazing and high quality. They have live music here some nights too. You can't beat the ambience. It reminds me of how Mr.Toots used to be back in the day with all the cool people and great service. I love this place! I recommend it highly and to all.

I went to Zizzo's for coffee the other day and was taken back by the Hawaiian atmosphere and overall wonderful feeling. Such a breath of fresh air from the standard coffee places we normally go to. I got a Mexican mocha with half the pumps and cocoa powder to cut the sweetness a bit. It was the absolute most amazing... More

I've tried three different types of mochas here and each one was yummy, and the cold brew ice coffee is too. Friendly staff and you get to watch surf videos while you enjoy your beverage. Lots of different drinks on the menu here.

This coffee shop has a nice selection of hot and cold coffee, tea, and other drinks plus bagels, sandwiches, and other light fare. It has much more of a cozy local feel to it than national chains that are found just across the street and in the mall. I had a wonderful little spinach and feta croissant in addition to... More

My wife loves this place. They have a great flavor selection. They roast the beans with favors so you don't need all the syrups. Its a better coffee experience than Starbucks and on par with Coffeetopia. We make it a stop every time that we come back to Santa Cruz.
