We went to Zachary's for breakfast and found the food very good. They have some nice variations on traditional American breakfast. Service was friendly and efficient.

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.

This place is a must visit whenever I'm in Santa Cruz. If you like breakfast/brunch-and who doesn't really? They make their own breads and they are delicious-especially the oatmeal one! This is very vegan/vegetarian friendly so you won't have to worry! Just be prepared to...More

My favorite brunch item is their hamburgers and Manhattan clam chowder. I love their tea. It's the best in the county for a mixed taste of a cinnamon/regular tea. The Mike's Mess is supposed to be the favorite choice on their menu. I come here...More
