“Great Latte”

I go back again and again for the great lattes...never eaten there, though. Vibe is friendly and relaxed..and.if you're taking the train, build in some extra time to chill at Zinc...

“Best natural foods served in a tasty, yummy way.......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

A friend invited myself and my housegest to the Zinc Cafe & Market; this one is in Corona Del Mar and they and Solana Beach are the same owner and same food so it's relevant. First of all, it's a darling place on the main part of downtown with adequate parking in front of and on the side of the building. It's spartan and Zen like in it's configuration and furnishing which makes the food the centerpiece. Many wonderful combinations of healthy vegetables are served cooked and raw and they also have a fabulous foccacio like pizza thing that's delicious.There are some great desserts that are unusual but great! The prices are reasonable and it's a homey and comfy place where you can go back and try more things if you like. The service is excellent and I would go back more if I lived closer....highly recommend it.
