Awesome place for Sunday brunch! Went there on a beautiful Sunday and was super pleased with the laid-back service we had from a cool waiter. I don't remember his name but he was a rad dude and super nice and helpful! Tangerine mimosas were the...More

A real brunch, huge dishes, tasty omelettes. The price is really good and the staff is one of the best things. Maybe the bathroom could be better.

Real hash browns! Homemade bread! Superb coffee! Pinch me, I must be dreaming. OK, I finished everything I wanted to say and you want 100 characters, TripAdvisor? Sheesh, I'm reviewing YOU next.

Management needs to ensure that the bathrooms are clean-they were extremely dirty, not acceptable especially for a food establishment-we would not return.

Fresh, fun and fantastic was my experience at Zacharys. Its a local breakfast place with great ambiance. The tangerine juice was fresh and yummy and the fritata was exquisite. The fried potatoes had great flavors from the herbs and onions. Great value.

Nice place in downtown area. Menu original items like pesto scramble and artichoke fritatta . Lots of choices such as fresh fruit substitute for potatoes without adding to price. Orange juice is fresh squeezed and yummy. We really enjoyed this place and would go back.

If you like a crap load of onions in your potatoes and corned beef hash made out of ham then this your spot. Waiter was more interested in my wife's eye shadow than our food. My wife said she didn't like onion so to leave...More

what's not to love about a big open room, wooden floors, relaxed servers and a great - - truly great - - breakfast menu. I had a super frittata -- creamy, cheesy and with local artichokes. Super home fries and a great jalapeno corn bread....More
