Ate here when we were in Lincoln two years ago and had a lovely meal. Menu has been completely changed and is rather more elaborate. I ordered pate to start (though it was called something different). We were given a table in the back room and the lighting was so dim, i couldn't really see what I was eating so... More

Had a great time. Food and service was first class. Very accommodating as there were 24 of us. Private dining upstairs, lovely. Great place for a big get together and also good for a table for two.

We were able to get a table for 2 at the last minute. When we arrived our table wasn't ready. We tried to stand near the bar but just felt in the way. We didn't have to wait too long as we were soon seated. Starters were delicious. Absolutely incredible. I had the fried Brie in breadcrumbs. I couldn't fault... More

We stopped by for coffee and cake, and decided to go back for lunch. Good decision the meatballs were excellent and the salmon first class. The only downside is that the ladies toilets are small and dark and quite dangerous (steps that can't be seen) my sister fell but fortunately was only bruised.

Popped in for lunch on a Saturday - very accommodating and my Caesar salad may have been the best I ever ate. Lovely wine and lovely staff

Visited this restaurant for my partners 21st birthday (big day). Food was lovely, good starters so you weren't full for your main and mains were delicious. Got the crayfish tails and chicken liver parfait to start - just lovely. Ribeye steak and lamb shoulder for main - again lovely! Staff were so attentive, particularly David was FANTASTIC, not too much,... More

Went here for breakfast while staying across the road at The White Hart. It's a very popular little spot. The food was nice but a little on the pricey side. I would have liked a pot of tea rather than a coffee cup with hot water and a tea bag in but maybe that's just me!

Description
Cafe Zoot is a privately owned business opened in 2000, located in the heart of historic Lincoln. During this time we have become renowned for consistently offering quality produce at great value, where a lively atmosphere is commonplace and friendly staff are attentively at your service.

In January 2013 Cafe Zoot underwent an extensive refurbishment. After listening to our customers on ways in which we could improve our restaurant, Cafe Zoot now boasts a brand new look, and a much more spacious interior.

We are open seven days a week from 8.30Am till late and offer a Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner menu. Throughout the week we also offer a Lunch Special Two Course Menu for £8.50 And an All Day Special Two Course Menu for £11.95. (Everyday except Saturday from 5.00Pm till 10.30Pm)

Our Chefs have worked hard on designing a menu with the classic dishes our customers love as well as offering an exciting A'la Carte menu with dishes to get your taste buds going!!
We always use fresh quality produce and our dishes our homemade and cooked to order.

Cafe Zoot can cater for various functions, whether you fancy a Champagne Breakfast, Birthday or Anniversary Celebration, we can also cater for Business conferences and meetings. Whatever the occasion come and celebrate with us!!
