Have been coming to Cafe Zinc since they opened and have generally had a good experience. Their recent price increases are too much for a restaurant in Midland. Examples include $36 for a pretty standard steak dish, $24 for pasta with meat sauce, and $36 for a salmon filet. Service was good, as expected, but meal price leaves a lot... More

Tried Cafe Zinc for the first time today. Four of us arrived for a late lunch, early dinner, and I'm so glad we came. The service was warm and welcoming, and we had a very short wait for our food. All four entrees were excellent and generously sized, and the setting is chic but comfortable. The corn and poblano quiche... More

One of the few good places to eat in Midland. Pricey, but good. I've been there at least a dozen times, and the food and service has always been excellent. The pastries and deserts are really something.

We recently had a wonderful breakfast at Cafe Zinc after a really nice stay at the H Hotel. The food was delicious, and we loved the atmosphere and design. I would definitely eat here again!

I enjoyed Cafe Zinc from time to time. The food is good and well-executed. However, I find the portions to be a little small and accordingly the prices to be a bit high. The service is first-rate!

Favorite location for longtime girlfriends to brunch/lunch and even have dinner together! Most times the celebrations are for successful charity events, volunteer work and/or birthdays. The menu is always appetizing and seasonally themed. Always prominently displayed on a chalk board. The dessert chef is gifted (chocolate mini The dessert chef is gifted with divine desserts and breads, leaving

We were on a getaway bicycling weekend in Midland and stayed at the H Hotel for its convenient location. We just happened in on the Cafe Zinc (or Ca Fe Zn as the clever sign above the door reads) for a late Sunday breakfast. Was it ever a treat! I had an omelet with Mexican influences such as the Pico... More

Very surprised! Just finding a place open on Sunday afternoon. The soup of the day, broccoli and cheese was great, the quiche great and a superb Rueben sandwich. Very fine service and enjoyable lunch!
