“a very odd little coffeeshop in a very odd little town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2008

Z'otz looks just like it was sprung from a hellish, late-night brainstorm between Edward Gorey and Terry Gilliam (Fisher King, 12 Monkeys) -- incoherent, dilapidated, abstract, and carrying a strong, menacing, gothic undertone. This is not the place to have a Sunday brunch after church; it's a place to discuss Marx and Engels while hardcore punk or industrial music pounds away in the background.

Z'otz is very proudly fair-trade and makes it a point to support local businesses. Try one of their giant cookies and a hibiscus iced tea and admire the art on the walls (stuff like cut-up dolls and angry, dark-looking expressionist drawings: not exactly the sunnier side of life). Experiment a bit with the different coffee and tea blends but make sure you don't run low on money; as of this review, they are cash-only.

Eehh. I've had too many encounters with pretentious art dicks here. Get over yourselves, it would make this place a lot more enjoyable if their employees werent so disgruntled. Coffee isnt that special either. But the actual establishment is very cool, nice interior decoration.
