We always enjoy dining at Cafe Zinc but save our trips there to special occasions as we believe it to be slightly over priced. Last night was a very good dining experience with my wife getting the Grilled salmon with bulgur wheat. It was very good but was it worth the $30 tag. The salmon size was generous but the... More

Delicious, inventive menu; excellent waitstaff and a beautiful location right on main street. Perfect place for a lovely Saturday morning breakfast. Try the French toast!

Cafe Zinc is my #1 favorite of mine - for atmosphere, food, value. For breakfast I especially like the egg & veggie skillets, the eggs benedict and the oatmeal with fresh fruit and nuts. Don't walk away without sampling a pastry! Dinner is especially delightful and I've found my favorite dishes have been the daily specials - especially for fish... More

Cafe Zinc has a great porch for dining on a lovely afternoon or evening. My husband loved the Pad Thai for a late Sunday afternoon lunch. I had the chicken and spinach flatbread which was like a salad heaped on top of hummus covered bread. It tasted fine but I was not looking for a salad at that time. The... More

This restaurant lives up to it's high standards of food, taste, atmosphere and service. Open landscape but some tables do offer a little more privacy than others. Open patio for outdoor seating, great for people watching or a more romantic seating.
