Great espresso, great people watching

I like to stop in while on a walk with a friend, or to meet clients when I need an easy to find location. Staff is very nice, and this is a great place to people watch.

Zoka is a great spot to have an equally great coffee or tea. I had cappuccino and some banana bread. The atmosphere is pleasant with lots of people just doing their thing. Decent free wifi was also available.

This place gets so crowded it is difficult to get in and get some coffee some days. There are the usual artists, writers, and computer people sitting around at tables with coffees at their sides. If you can get space to sit at a table it is good place to soak up some creative energy. Otherwise, get your coffee to... More

One of the best cappuccinos in town. Great coffee overall. Food choices are limited but that's not the focus. Ambience is very nice with lots of light. Big minus is the speed. Only one cash register and one barista. It may take a while to get your order

Cool café to hang out until late. Great selection of teas, especially the lychee tea. Staff is friendly and the café has a great atmosphere. Nice location with close parking.

The coffee there is adequate. A little disorganized for ordering. All day there are many people spending their day at their computers. Nothing special for food.

Zoka has a nice atmosphere and I was told by my son the coffee is very good. Like most coffee houses, they don't seem to be capable of making a good hot chocolate. The place was packed on a Sunday afternoon.

service is decent, coffee is good. You can buy beans from them to make coffee at home and those are great (a little pricey but still good)
