The potatoes were so salty. The egg Benedict was very dry. Server never came over to table to ask if we wanted water.

While their cakes and cupcakes look scrumptious, they all seem to taste the same, just flour and sugar. I have been disappointed several times now buying cakes for special occasions. Will not go back.

Never had a bad meal at Zake's. Never had a mediocre meal at Zake's. Never had a good meal at Zake's, because their food is really excellent. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, this BYOB is always jampacked, and for good reason.

Had the most fabulous pancakes, with bacon. My Wife had the Indian spiced poached eggs! So different and delicious! The restaurant is in an old colonial farmhouse and the decor is very clean and crisp. They are also very well know for their bakery items. Yummy cakes, cheesecake, pies & tarts. Did I mention dinner specials! Enjoy!

Unfortunately, when our group (who included a friend from Italy) arrived at Zakes at about 4 pm on a Friday, we were told they were closed till 5 pm. This is not what they advertised. So, we left to find another place to eat. Our Italian friend was dumbfounded.

Had the Cobb salad with Salmon and it was perfect! My business partner had the roasted turkey with Brie and it was very tasty as well as the red skin potato salad!

My son and his new bride were married this past weekend and got the wedding cake from Zakes cakes. It was delicious. They had gotten 2 flavors chocolate and lemon. Both were excellent but my favorite was the lemon. Best lemon cake I've ever had!! Looked great and tasted great!!

My husband and I went for breakfast on a Friday and have had breakfast there three days straight. Honey lemon pancakes with caramel sauce dances on your tongue. My husband absolutely loves the yogurt with homemade granola and fruit. This has become our favorite place for breakfast. I don't usually take home leftovers but I pack up everything here.

I'm not usually that adventurous when it comes to food but went outside my comfort zone and it paid off. The food was absolutely amazing. Everyone was friendly and accommodating. We didn't have to wait very long even though we were there right as dinner started. It was a bit expensive, but you get what you pay for. Would definitely... More
