Zov's is a great place to go for brunch on a Sunday after a morning of hiking at the top of Ridge Park Dr. Great omelettes, pancakes, hash browns and mimosas if you desire. Their lunch menu is yummy too.

We enjoy going to zovs and having dinner on outside patio. Our favorite dish is the chicken and beef skewers with white rice and salad. It's very shareable. Nice ambiance.
