Had lunch with my partner, friend and her daughter today, i ordered a jacket potato which was delicious came with side salad, great range of food and drinks on menu for all sorts of dietary needs only thing i say they could put on meals is if having panini or sandwich meal deal have salad instead of chips but overally spacious, excellent service and staff :)

Great range of meals on the menu, always cooked fresh to order, good coffee, and nice, friendly staff. We often go to Zen because we know we'll get a nice meal at very good value. Nice relaxed atmosphere too, with comfortable seating. Recommended.

Popped in here for a bacon sandwich and cup of tea. Didn't do bacon so tried sausage. Very strange taste, suspect cheap sausages. Avoid if possible. Positive aspect is the cafe does free wifi.

The cafe may look a bit second rate but that totally belies the service and the food they provide. Its the sort of cafe where you have to pick up your own condiments. It is mostly 'chips with everything' but they are nice chips and the portions for the prices are very generous. If I'm in town I will aim for this cafe rather than going elsewhere as, apart from students lunchtimes, (its near the Burton College) you can nearly always get a table. If desperate I understand there is an upper floor too but I've never been up there.
