Weekend One Hundred and Nineteen: Cafe Zanzibar

We left our secret location, headed out to a familiar brunch spot on the peninsula: Cafe Zanzibar: We were to meet with Catie's parents and check out what's new on the menu.

Cafe Zanzibar is off the beaten track, hidden behind some trees and a gravel parking lot. It's a low wooden building, with many windows, tucked in a forest-like setting. All the windows show is green, which is pretty relaxing! The service is usually pretty quick, and it's always a pretty active kitchen. No waits for our table, and we settled in to peruse the menu. 

Catie's Mum selected the Full Breakfast ($12), while Catie's Dad went for an omelette ($13). Catie decided on the Classic Benny ($16), and I also chose the omelette. Several fillings are available for the omelettes - Jim and I both selected the bacon and feta. The Bennies and Full Breakfast come with a fresh fruit smoothie, which I heartily recommend. More brunch spots should have smoothies included with their breakfasts!

So, how did it all taste? The potatoes are pretty good, and we all had them, but the omelettes stood out. Light and fluffy eggs, with generous fillings get a recommendation from me. Catie's benny had tasty Hollandaise, probably freshly-made, she said, while the Full Breakfast fills you up with good taste.

This is the first write up for Zanzibar, but it's not our first visit. Perhaps you should make plans for your first visit, especially if you like tasty brunch served in a green and relaxing setting!
