We make a point of visiting Zinc Cafe when we're in Laguna. This trip we had lunch one day, breakfast the next. Everything is fresh, flavorful, interesting, and satisfying. Well, everything we've had. The Rubenesque sandwich replaces corned beef with beets and is all the better for it. A wonderful, savory sandwich, served with a side salad. My husband ordered... More

Best part of Zinc is the local ambiance. Well behaved dogs are welcomed on the patio. The food is good too. Relax on the patio with delicious coffees, fresh baked goods and egg dishes. One Zinc serves breakfast food and the other Zinc has lunch, deli items for take home or eating on the patio. Call for serving hours so... More

Went there for a quick lunch and wasn't disappointed! Fresh local and healthy food. The terrace outside is on the shade and quiet. Would definitely recommend it!

This place gets busy and has a limited amount of tables. Grab a table as soon as you can. Food was very good. Great coffee. You sit outside and the tables are very close together. It's worth a visit.

Really enjoyed the fresh, delicious, well-made food here. The patio is casual and shaded. There's a relaxed feeling about everything here, so don't expect a fast food experience..

We stopped by for lunch on a recent Sunday and had the choice of sitting on the pretty dog-friendly patio or inside. You order at the counter and then they bring your food to you. There is a fairly large menu and also a traiteur-style assortment of dishes behind the counter. It wasn't readily apparent what was in each dish,... More

The ordering system leaves a bit to be desired. You get in line to place your order, then wait for what seems to be a super long time. The upside is that the egg salad sandwich was delish. Very fresh, on a bread that if warm, you would swear had just come from the oven. Add a smear of mustard... More

Gone there quite a few times, its nice, but wish they had more meat oriented offerings. Self service, and have the ability to lunch with my dogs, so thats alway a find. They have a sunrise drink that is really good, an orange juice mix. Fun to go with friends.

Grew up coming here - the first thing I tried was their tiramisu and I was in love instantly. Their veggie burger and eggplant sandwich are also fantastic. My grandmother and I will usually enjoy cappuccinos before hitting the town. It's located near great shopping too so it's a no brainier to make this a stop every visit!
