Zinc Cafe & Market, Los Angeles

Zinc Cafe & Market, Los Angeles

Zinc Cafe & Market is a coffee resort and an ovo-lacto vegetarian cafe. The place offers an all-day menu of Californian cuisine – ideal for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner – served in a peaceful patio garden setting. As a bonus, the on-site Bar Mateo, housed in a barn built in 1914, sitting behind a mature olive grove, offers a notable craft cocktail program and curated wine list that has been uniting, once again, writers and alcohol - the real L.A. power couple!

Great cocktails, dining al-fresco under the trees and pleasing aesthetics (exposed beams, natural light, and sprawling courtyard) makes this venue a true Arts District hotspot. This is where good coffee and tasty health-minded eats come together, and where is plenty of space for a whole acting class to crank out a screenplay together, hand in hand, never breaking an eye contact.

The place has been open since May 2014 offering a nice respite from the hustle and bustle of nearby downtown L.A. The modern retail marketplace has an abundance of prepared foods, such as salads, entrees, appetizers and desserts to enjoy at Zinc or take home.

In case you want to bring your favorite furball along to Zinc Cafe & Market, it has a dog-friendly policy and keeps the doors open to pooches. Weekend visitors to the restaurant are well advised to take advantage of the reservation system, as crowds tend to pack the place on Fridays and Saturdays. No need to dress up – the casual laid-back attire is welcome. A typical meal at Zinc Cafe & Market will set you back less than $30.

Operation Hours:
Mon-Wed 8:00am-10:00pm, Thu-Sat 8:00am-12:00am, Sun 8:00am-10:00pm. Open until midnight on weekdays, but the boozy weekend brunch, which is served until 2pm, is their specialty.
