Laguna Beach, California: Zinc Cafe & Market; restaurant review

350 Ocean Ave., (949) 494-6302.  Daily 7am-6pm; $$.  No reservations. 

Order at the counter of the all-vegetarian jZinc Cafe & Market, then pick a table in the cozy indoors or outside on the popular patio.  Particular good items include the quiche, the pastries (especially the almond cake and the frosting-topped pecan cookie--make my recipe version).  A small adjacent deli purveys take-away food and some gift items.

More things to do in Laguna Beach. 

More ideas for exploring the U.S.

  1. This sounds like a wonderful little place. I would likely indulge my sweet tooth with the frosting-topped pecan cookies.

  2. They have a branch at 132 S. Cedros Ave. in Solana Beach.

  3. Love Zinc's! So how come we never ran into each other there in 15 years? Haha...

    1. I usually hang at the one in Solana Beach, but it just closed, :(,
