“A Local Treasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

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!

“Wonderful little cafe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

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 a Sunday and we got a table right away. I had the Morning Glory omelet, which was an omelet with sundried tomatoes and goat cheese. It was excellent! It was served with a potato pancake, which was truly the best potato pancake I ever had - moist and flavorful.

The food was reasonably priced - I would definitely recommend it!

“I love this place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

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.

“Fresh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

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.

“Lovely little cafe”

I recently had the opportunity to stop in Zena's for lunch, and what a pleasant surprise! The food was delicious and the relaxed atmosphere lent itself to a leisurely lunch. I enjoyed the vegetarian wrap.
