Chose Cafe Zoot for a mid-week evening meal, not pre-booked. Despite being very busy the two waitresses and one waiter were quick and efficient. Risotto and Pork belly were both superb. Very busy, nice ambience. Thank you all!

Cafe Zoot is a privately owned business opened in 2000, located in the heart of historic Lincoln. During this time we have become renowned for consistently offering quality produce at great value, where a lively atmosphere is commonplace and friendly staff are attentively at your service. In January 2013 Cafe Zoot underwent an extensive refurbishment. After listening to our customers on ways in which we could improve our restaurant, Cafe Zoot now boasts a brand new look, and a much more spacious interior. We are open seven days a week from 8.30Am till late and offer a Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner menu. Throughout the week we also offer a Lunch Special Two Course Menu for £8.50 And an All Day Special Two Course Menu for £11.95. (Everyday except Saturday from 5.00Pm till 10.30Pm) Our Chefs have worked hard on designing a menu with the classic dishes our customers love as well as offering an exciting A'la Carte menu with dishes to get your taste buds going!! We always use fresh quality produce and our dishes our homemade and cooked to order. Cafe Zoot can cater for various functions, whether you fancy a Champagne Breakfast, Birthday or Anniversary Celebration, we can also cater for Business conferences and meetings. Whatever the occasion come and celebrate with us!!
