The last time that we had been at Cafe Zoot, we thought that the ingredients on the sandwich were a little sparse and the best thing that I'll say about Cafe Zoot is that they are consistent. Cafe Zoot is located in the Jazz Food Court on Concourse C of Terminal 1 at O'Hare International Airport. There are several other... More

Coffee was old, sandwich was bad +service people were in a crap mood. You'll do better at the many other options at terminal C.

I picked up a ham, egg and cheese croissant with a latte and was unimpressed with both. The sandwich was 90% wilted (microwaved) bread and tasted industrial. The coffee was weak. I should have made the trek to Wolfgang Pucks or, for that matter, McDonald's.

Cafe Zoot! Is located in Concourse C in the United Terminal. It is a take out place, although there are plenty of tables and chairs nearby. The coffee is pretty good, and so too were the pastries.

A decent option to lunch in between connecting flights at Chicago O'Hare Airport. Much better than airline food. They have a wide variety of alternatives to choose from. Bread is good.

I got the Italian sub. It existed out of 1 slice of salami, one slice of ham, a little cheese and way to much lettuce. Way to pricy for such a crappy sandwich.

Plenty of options. I actually chose the vegetarian. Plenty of veggies and you can add cheese. Do be careful when asking for condiments...ask them to go light on the mustard and/or Italian dressing. They can be heavy handed and it completely overpowers the sandwich. You can choose between multi grain bread or ciabatta/baguette.

Not much of a wait, inspite of it being midday at O'Hare International Airport. Got the roast beef , chips and brownies. Good solid plane lunch in between ORD and IAH. Stopped nearby gate 21 to get a ginger ale to go as well.

The sandwiches are quite tasty and reasonably priced but they seem to have problems getting an order exactly correct. Although my portobello mushroom sandwich was exactly what I ordered, my wife's veggie sandwich did not have the cheese that I had requested but did have tomatoes that I told them not to add.

I got scammed at this cafe. Was buying 2 croissant which amount to 9 bucks, paid with an 50 bill as I didnt have any smaller on me. The clerk could not change and asked for a creditcard. Got my 50 dollar back and I gave him my creditcard and he swiped the card and gave it back to me.... More
