Casual feel with a touch of class. Wide variety of breakfast foods and we'll prepared drinks. Completely vegetarian menu, which was no problem even for the meat eaters in the group. You can eat well and still feel good about it. The store front is right on the main street.

I've been going to the Zinc in Laguna for over twenty years and the CDM one since it opened. Zinc is consistently excellent, fresh, and amazing. It is one of my favorite places for lunch.

We ate here for breakfast on our recent trip to Newport Coast Villas. It was super close to our timeshare and parking was easy. It was a little confusing when we walked in as it was hard to tell where to order and how to get our food. Once we figured it out, we ordered at the register and then... More

It is AMAZING how good the "vegetarian" meals prepared by Zinc are!!! This is a fun place to gather for just a cup or a meal. Very nice indoor and outdoor.

Locals love Zinc. And for good reason. For many years they have been serving healthy food in a relaxed and comfortable environment next to PCH. The test of time and presence of crowds (most repeat customers) tells you what you need to know: this is a local favorite.

The freshest and most delicious Vegas and salads and soups. Great baked goods. A really perfect spot for brunch or lunch or snack. Always busy... Indoor and covered outdoor seating. Parking difficult sometimes. Worth going.

Ideal breakfast/lunch spot. Great retail shop too. Small, but worth the wait. I prefer this location over their Laguna Beach.
