We just happened on this lovely place. Great food and the service was the best. It is a combination bakery & restaurant with good basic food done right and priced fairly. You can go in the back if there isn’t parking out front.

I would recommend Zachary's for breakfast. Food was great and so was the blueberry coffee cake. There was a wait to get in because we arrived late for Sunday breakfast. Staff friendly and helpful.

Nice casual restaurant. The food is pretty tasty and the prices reasonable. It's a hip happening place in the college town of Santa Cruz. The staff seem to enjoy the work. Expect a wait on weekends. Well worth a visit.

We had Mike's Mess and Old Fashioned, and they did not disappoint! Servings were huge and the food was delicious. It's still a family run place which is nice to see.

We tried the waffles and they were great. They have so many choices on their menu, it's hard to decide. Every day they have different soups and specials, so make sure you ask for the specials before you decide. It's difficult to get parking, so...More
