Great place to meet friends, family or a date for a casual meal. Many good selections and the option to eat outside on a nice day.

On the recommendation of a friend, our group enjoyed an evening meal at Cafe Zola during restaurant week. We all ordered from the special restaurant week menu (marinated tofu on bed of rice; Turkish lamb chops). (Some restaurant week menu items may not be available...More

Stumbled upon Cafe Zola after our first choice restaurant turned out to be too noisy. The ambiance was perfectly low-key to enjoying a dinner for two. We had the warm olives, fried Moroccan chickpeas, and Caprese salad as appetizers. My husband is from Southern France...More

The brunch menu is ample and the food was good. The standard amount of maple syrup served with an order of waffles is very modest (I would guess about 2 or 3 tablespoons), so we asked for some more syrup. For the second thimbleful, we...More

This was my first visit. I ordered an omelette. It came with a side of red potatoes. Both were absolutely delicious and filling. My friend ordered waffles that she loved as well. I will definitely return to try some of the other menu items.

My daughter and I ate lunch here and we enjoyed it very much, but the food was a bit expensive for what you got. Our bill was $42.60 without tax, and we had a ham and havarti sandwich (13.95), a side salad (3.75), and the...More
