“Great Food and Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

This place has it all. Locals, tourists and the best breakfast around. Home made breads and muffins. Over the top has browns and coffee as good as Starbuck!
Plus, the people watching is another plus in this place.
Don't miss it.

“Great service, great selection, great value, great setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

A real old-fashioned kind of place - cosy, with wooden floors and wooden tables and chairs. Nice and busy, and with excellent service. The food was perfect - there were 5 of us and we all ordered different things from the menu and each dish was superb. Lots of different breads to choose from, corn bread, rye bread etc. The portions were substantial to say the least. Something for everyone. TRY IT! Best breakfast place so far for me.

“Great breakfast, good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

We had a truly good meal here. It's downtown, so a bit out of the way for people staying at the beach; but worth the trip. We had steak and eggs, and everything was delicious. The server was attentive, quick and sensible (a trait I find is rare).

“Good at average pricing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Very good food (scrambles, artisan bread/toast, coffee) and now my wife will give her version of Zachary's. This restaurant is a keeper, we get the basic breakfast, eggs, toast and potatoes, the fried potatoes are out of this world, lightly seasoned and yummy, the eggs taste so fresh and done just right. They bake their own bread, we always get the whole wheat toast and WOW....it is out of this world. I just wish we came to Santa Cruz more often....I would drive many miles to eat breakfast at Zachary's. You can buy loaves of bread from them, also.

“Breakfast place!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Loved the breakfast here. The place was pretty full, but we were seated quickly, the food came out exceptionally quick and it was really good. Good wait staff and the value was good. Definitely get breakfast here.
