I've stopped at most of the local coffee shops in silver springs and Zed's is the best by far. Not only for the coffee but the pastries as well. Do not pass this place up.

With a list of several coffeehouses, we went by three before deciding to stop here. We made a great decision. We placed our orders: peach smoothies, spinach and bacon quiche, decaf mocha with almond milk, and apple pie. We waited what we thought was an...More
