“Fresh, organic menu options!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

This restaurant is the kind where you go up to the counter and order off the posted menu and then they bring it to your table, so as others have said, if you want something fancier, go to one of the many other restaurants in the area. But if you want fresh, organic, vegetarian and vegan options, then this is a good place to come!

Our group got grilled cheese sandwiches and a vege-burger. All were made fresh and to our order to accommodate some food allergies.

The staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant is small, but clean.

Zinc Cafe and Market are Laguna Beach must sees and must experience. Interesting and healthy breakfast options with outdoor dining and a taste of the neighborhood, a feel for the locals.

“Good honest vegetarian food”
4 of 5 bubbles 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!”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
