I was invited to lunch with a dear friend at Z Cafe. We sat outside at the only table wedged between the little sandwich shop's doors. There wasn't really enough room for the table because people had to step off the sidewalk to go around our table. You place your order at the counter and have to stand around to... More

Z Cafe is a breakfast/lunch deli. We were there for the first time this week and found the sandwiches and salads to be very good. All of the ingredients were fresh and well put together.

I use Z-Café for breakfast and lunch meetings at work (they deliver which is a time saver for me). There food is always fresh and made the same day. The owners and staff are all very friendly and accommodating.

I was in town for business, and one of my local colleagues suggested this place. When I walked in, I thought it was just an any-town-USA deli, but I was wrong! I ordered their special - chicken, green chile, avocado, chipotle, lettuce, tomato, onion and cucumber (I think that's everything) on a chipotle wrap, with a side of bow tie... More

My wife and I have been coming here for many years. We are very health conscious and appreciate the high quality and freshness of their food. Over the years we have taken many friends there for lunch and have never been disappointed. Their menu has a wide selection and the prices are fair for the quality of food served.

You always know you're in a good place when the Fire Fighters eat there. I have noticed that they always sniff out the best food venues, and I often see them here at Z-Cafe. The first time I ate here it was so delicious, so when I came back, I was very tempted to go back to the tried and... More

Went here for a late lunch yesterday and it didn't disappoint. This place is open for breakfast and lunch only and closes at 4:00pm daily. I had the BLT-avocado on 7 grain bread with chipotle sauce. I got the chipotle sauce instead of the standard mayo, it was wonderful! It was served on a plate. The staff was friendly and... More

I've been driving past this place for years, decided to stop for a late lunch. Oh, good job Z Cafe! Simple lunch of tuna salad sandwich and bow tie pasta salad was delicious. And the food is served on a plate. No paper wrapper here. I will be back next week
