Really nice coffee and great eggs benedict. We chose thus Cafe because it was less expensive than others nearby. The poached eggs were perfect.

This evening I enjoyed a succulent Scotch fillet, served medium rare. Simply served, the steak stood on its own merits. Recommended.

Made my dining judgement on what seemed from the outside to be a vibrant restaurant - boy did I get it wrong!

Ordered two medium well scotch fillets which we thought was a safe menu call. They turned up pale, bloody,sinewy and so tough they were hard to cut, let alone eat.

We just got up, paid and left after passing a message back through a very apologetic waiter that the chef should eat the meals himself!

I don't understand how any restaurant could even contemplate serving food up like that at menu price tag of $30+ each.

The better restaurants in the precinct don't need to have their collective good reputations tarnished in that way.

We have tried to give Zinc a chance visiting a few times to see if they might improve but alas it has not. Good cafe food is not exactly the most difficult thing to produce but Zinc really lets Newcastle's premier cafe strip down. I will look forward to the day I see a sign saying new chef or new owners but for now I will be going next door to one of the other excellent cafes along Darby Street.
