My boyfriend and I are regulars here. We fell in love with this place due to the combination of amazing staff, drinks and food! Angela who runs the front is a gem. All of the servers are fantastic, Sarah, Esther, and Erin! I'd recommend Zig Zag to anyone - local or tourists.

Spur-of-the-moment decision to have a late afternoon libation...cousin who lives in Seattle led us down to Zig Zag and we happened upon 3 vacant bar stools. Within a half hour the place was buzzing with Friday afternoon post-work crowd. Overall a wonderful experience, to sit at the bar and watch Derek the bartender at his craft, soaking up the cozy, warm atmosphere of the cafe. Drinks were delicious, bar service was attentive. Seemed to be a popular local spot. Recommended.

Zig-zag is a little difficult to find but well worth the hunt. The atmosphere is very speak-easy and the staff are excellent. What makes Zig-zag really special are the cocktails. So good I went back twice!

The food was good. I'd highly recommend the Warm Beet Salad. The drinks were amazing. They have something for every palate. And the ambiance made for a great evening. But that's not what makes this bar so good. It's the people. Ben the (owner,?) was extremely hospitable. Making rounds, and making sure everyone was comfortable and well taken care of. An old soul and classy guy. And then there was the Bartender (also named Ben), who after we ordered a couple of cocktails off the menu, had us sit at the bar to craft a couple based off of our personal tastes. Great place.
