“Good honest vegetarian food”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

The Zinc cafe is a great place to go for lunch and has a good selection of different dishes, and a pleasant covered outside eating area. None of them are particularly fancy, but they are tasty and freshly cooked. If you want fancy, there are plenty of much more expensive places near the ocean front you can go to instead.

Three of our party are vegetarians, and the other five all convinced carnivorous. However even the meat eaters found plenty of stuff on the menu to enjoy, and left full and satisfied.

“California Healthy Superb!”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

This place is a gem. Fresh, lots of organic, great tasting,healthy food. The service is excellent, that atmosphere wonderful and the food is superb. Mostly outside dining, with a few tables inside. A place to eat every day, it's that good. Not to be missed. Not fancy, but very clean.

While lunch is great here, breakfast is excellent. It's delicious and good for you, too! Can you ask for more?

“Good, healthy, fresh food”
Reviewed 2 December 2013 via mobile

If you are into healthy, vegetarian food, then this is the place to go. Food is very fresh. Patio dining makes for good people watching.

“ZINC Cafe”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

Zinc Café is a great spot for locals and tourists. I love the egg scramble for breakfast. We also love the catering side. The cheese torte, twice baked potatoes and Southwest salad are exceptional. It is sometimes tough to get a table given its popularity but worth the wait. Dog friendly so its a great place to grab breakfast halfway through your morning walk through Laguna.
