Great food - breakfast and lunch. Self serve coffee and tea. Inviting little cafe'. Never feel rushed. Just had a surprise birthday party for my daughter and the food was fabulous. Choose the stuffed mushrooms as appetizer ... OMG. BYOB and music and you're set to have a great time. Strawberry Shortcake was great. Thanks Grace for a wonderful party... More

Very good menu with home style soups, sandwiches, salads. Buffalo burger over salad is my favorite. Burger topped with hot sauce, blue cheese & bacon over spring mix. Love the included rice pudding.

This is a wonderful place for lunch. Excellent soups, glorious sandwiches, tasty salads, and lovely 'extras' like freshly baked cakes and bread. Every meal is served with a little helping of delicious rice pudding - to round out your dining experience! The service is charming and helpful. The ambience is calm, relaxed and mercifully quiet - no restless music piped... More

Wonderful lunch menu, and the staff is so accommodating. I can't seem to get past the veggie panini on the menu, it's that good. Their outstanding soups are fresh every day, and it's almost impossible to leave without sampling their luscious bakery items.

Zena's is a local gem where folks say "Good Morning" and smile. The food is good, the service is sunny and the space is bright and comfy. Grab a coffee and relax in a corner. Ask Jan for menu advice!

We drove past this cafe on our way out of town and decided to stop to try it out. The hostess explained you seat yourself, order at the register, and then they deliver the food to your table. All the drinks are self-served. It was cute and quaint- not tons of table room but we were there at 11:30 on... More

This place is so warm and cozy. The food is always excellent. They make baked goods here that are incredible. The soups, sandwiches and hot entrees are all tasty. It's also an excellent place to sit and sip coffee. Stop by on a Saturday morning for breakfast or Sunday for brunch. It won't disappoint.

Great coffee and pastries are great. A family run establishment that has been around for quite a while. They have expanded by adding more food. Not sure if they still do it but they sometimes have cooking classes.
