Stopped for lunch. Very pleasant and relaxing atmosphere! Food very tasty and fresh. Half sandwich and side was a nice option.

I did not expect to find a restaurant like this in Hutch. Great, from scratch cooking of unique items. The meatloaf was great and more than made up for my so-so cocktail.

Zella's ciabatta chicken was always my favorite, now it is only so so. The bun is double the size of the chicken breast now, no capers, no tangy sauce, no oozing cheese...PLEASE, PLEASE fix!!

Zella's is a restaurant you would expect to see in a more metropolitan area, so a great change of pace if you are sick of chain sandwich shops found in Small Town Everywhere. Menu options are unique and reportedly change with the season and dining hour, food sourced locally when possible. Be sure to check online for hours of operation... More

You don't find many places like this outside of a metro area. We had a chicken sandwich and a cup of wild rice soup both were good .nice atmosphere if it was not such a drive we would try dinner as we were road tripping.

My husband and I have been here several times and it has been pretty good. There aren't a ton of vegetarian options besides the pizza so I typically get that which can be pricey if you add a lot of toppings. My husband has had their burgers and lamb burgers a few times and has liked them. The one thing... More

While not residents of Hutchinson, we have eaten at Zella's several times and it has become a planned stop on our trips home to Minneapolis from Western Minnesota. It would be a successful restaurant if located in Minneapolis, despite the volume of excellent eateries in the Twin Cities, and Hutchinson is lucky to have it. The menu provides plentiful options...

Had Lunch with friends. We ordered several different items from the menu. All of us enjoyed our food. The wait staff were not attentive to our group of six. Not once did anyone check if we wanted more coffee or anything. Will look for another alternative in the future.

Very nice spot for a holiday lunch. Our group of 14 fit nicely in the front area. The food was varied so everyone was able to find something they enjoyed. The food was delicious and the staff was very accommodating to our needs.

Thank Julie B

This is an amazing find in southwestern MN. You usually have to drive another 70 miles to the twin cities to get this level of food. Please list so we can review! Thanks!
