4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Great service, wide-ranging menu.
Recommend the banana pancakes with honeycomb crumble.
Wife enjoyed bacon and eggs too.

“always a favourite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We often eat in La Zona which has great food, good service, comfortable seats and a very pleasant owner, Irene, who tries to make everything perfect.
There are cheap and tasty specials every day and we've never had a bad experience.
I take all my friends there, and all have been more than satisfied.
I'd recommend it to anyone.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Although the cafe is in a great location the food is its down point.
I ordered the chicken breast on salad with prawns and calamari.
Firstly it was $26, second it came out warm, third the calamari tasted terrible and hard, fourth there was only two small prawns on the plate & brownish colours avacardo.
Now if I wanted JUST the chicken snitzel I could/should have ordered the snitzel for cheaper! Wasn't that impressed. My Friend ordered the risotto which was nice & the coffee wasn't bad either.

“CAFE THAT TICKS ALL THE BOXES”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

This is my absolute favourite of all the many cafes located in GYMEA, SYDNEY. The owner is a delight - she helps her staff with serving, and ensures that you have all you need. It is really refreshing to have an owner actually come out and not only assist her staff,but also come to you to ensure you are happy.
The staff are friendly, professional and give fantastic service.
The food is EXCELLENT, with a wide variety of choices, and is always delicious. They also have a great kids menu, and for the adults there is a B.Y.O. if you feel like bringing along your own. However, LA ZONA does have a licence, so if you decide to have a wine, they have some reasonably priced wines to choose from.
The coffee is fantastic, and as I am a very fussy coffee drinker, this is a must.
There is a good-sized outdoor area to watch the world go by, and enjoy the sunny days, along with a large indoor area for those who prefer the airconditioning and cushioned seating.
LA ZONA has great lunch specials, where you can have a delicious cooked meal and a cup of coffee for only $12, along with weekend special of $14.
There are a lot of cafes in Gymea, and I have been to them all, but LA ZONA is the one that I always go to now, due to the great service, staff and food.
I can highly recommend this lovely cafe, and I know you will not be disappointed.

“Best breakfasts, Great service, Great Coffee!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

We come here for breakfast once a week. The service is quick, meals are very fresh and tasty (great scrambled eggs and bacon) and the coffee is very good. Prices are very reasonable. Staff are always friendly. I go here with family and also clients for lunch as it is quiet to discuss anything without loud music drowning you out. There is a kid's menu and I often have kid's breakfast as I am not a big eater and it is never a concern. You definitely cannot go past La Zona. Highly recommended
