Dope spot for breakfast lunch happy hour or in my case, solo dinner in the bar area as I was in town for work and staying in the hotel. Fresh interesting california menu - killer fish tacos, healthy stuff like buffalo cauliflower and garlic lime brussels with pork belly -- and delicious hangar steaks and burgers if you are feeling...

Not a bad place for a snack or lunch. It's very much a TGI Fridays quality but the staff was great. It makes up for the lack of amazing food.

Zimzala is a pretty decent spot hidden away near busy Main St in Huntington Beach. While it's only a street away from Main, the street is always usually empty. The restaurant is located on the second floor of Shorebreak Hotel. The hotel itself appears to be pretty nice. They have a wine hour in the afternoon and it seems as... More

Had lunch on the patio while waiting for my room to be ready. The fish tacos were great and the pretzel bites with the beer infused cheese were really good too. Went back for breakfast and the breakfast burrito was awesome and large.

We've been here a few times and the food is very good. The hummus appetizer was amazing!! Last night we sat on the patio and brought our dogs.

This was a little hard to locate at first because it is on the 2nd floor of the hotel & shopping area. It is a cute place with a large outdoor seating area where puppies are allowed. It is partially covered so you could sit in the open or not depending on the weather. Their food menu does not really... More
