I enjoyed Cafe Zinc from time to time. The food is good and well-executed. However, I find the portions to be a little small and accordingly the prices to be a bit high. The service is first-rate!

Favorite location for longtime girlfriends to brunch/lunch and even have dinner together! Most times the celebrations are for successful charity events, volunteer work and/or birthdays. The menu is always appetizing and seasonally themed. Always prominently displayed on a chalk board.

We were on a getaway bicycling weekend in Midland and stayed at the H Hotel for its convenient location. We just happened in on the Cafe Zinc (or Ca Fe Zn as the clever sign above the door reads) for a late Sunday breakfast. Was it ever a treat! I had an omelet with Mexican influences such as the Pico... More

Very surprised! Just finding a place open on Sunday afternoon. The soup of the day, broccoli and cheese was great, the quiche great and a superb Rueben sandwich. Very fine service and enjoyable lunch!

Been here several times over the past year, the last time in May. Food is very good and the fries are to die for. Frequent changes to menu keep it fresh. The only issue we have is with the seating (both the chairs themselves being very restrictive / narrow and the lack of room inside). If you have even a... More

I've been here a half dozen times and seem to think the same thing, ahh is good, doesn't leave me clamoring for more, outside dining is very nice, for the price I would expect more panache in the food, great tea service, so if you go, the pastry chef creates amazing desserts....
