We had our best dining experience in recent memory at Cafe Zinc. Beautifully prepared and presented meals. The Branzino Caponato (an eggplant preparation) and the Grilled Chicken were both exquisite. Very good house made breads and desserts. Attentive service.

We have eaten there three times now during our recent visits to Midland. The food is excellent!! From the delicious heavily seeded brown bread that they bring to you when you first sit down to the perfect Chocolate Mousse Cake, which is undoubtedly the most beautiful and delicious dessert I've ever tasted!!!! Wish we lived closer to Midland.

Starting with the smiling welcoming host at the door and finishing with the last thank you from our waiter, the breakfast experience at Cafe zinc was delightful. The menu included both exotic and ordinarily expected items with the eggs benedict done to perfection and scrambled eggs creamy and perfect to the taste. Mixed fruit and special whole grain bread toasted... More

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

The lamb was a little gamey for our taste but my steal dish was yummy. They had a nice beer selection. This restaurant is a... 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
