A small restaurant which filled up quickly at lunch with homemade, local and organic food with an emphasis on vegetables. We first shared the spinach triangle appetizer which came with two dipping sauces, all very well prepared. For entrees, I ordered the chicken shish-kebob, moist and flavorful, and my husband had the Romanian brisket, which he found disappointing, perhaps it... More

All of the food is fresh: bought, prepared,and served by the owners, Berna and Erkan. They are nice, kind, people - you'd want them as neighbors. If you have health issues, tell them. Berna will come out of the kitchen to make suggestions and prepare a meal that meets your diet requirements. (I am on a heart-healthy diet). It's like... More

I highly recommend this restaurant. Everything is homemade by the owner and everything is organic and delish! I can't wait to go back! I wish they were open on the weekends!

Great little place with excellent food. I have only been there at lunch with friends but plan to take my husband there soon. The food is very tasty and a nice change from American fare. I would highly recommend Café Zuppina to anyone. It's a small place so get there either early or late for meals.

Had fantastic dinner at Cafe Zuppina. Friend from Lakeland took me there and this place is a gem. Looked on TA and apparently we aren't the only people who think so. Some of the best Turkish food I have ever eaten and one of my favorite restaurants in Florida.

Zuppina's food is organic and so wonderful. We always feel healthy when we leave even our family and friends agree and come here often. You are in for a truly fabulous dining experience. We have to have our Zuppina's Fix at least Once a week

Eating at Café Zuppina is an experience and a treat. Everything I have tried is so fresh, so tasty and healthy. A locally owned restaurant with a Turkish cuisine lovingly served by Berna and Erkan Nar. Try it, you will not be disappointed.

We just had dinner at Cafe Zuppina. The food was superb and completely fresh; the brussels sprouts and all of the other vegetables are culinary masterpieces! The brisket was exceptional and the vegetable plate was 5 star!! The baklava with pistachios could not have been any better; it melted in our mouths! Berna is so friendly and welcoming; she wants...
