Zocalo Cafe

Owners Chris Courtney, Kelly Chappell, and Jay Bunda designed Zocalo Cafe to be directly rooted in service to their community, even going so far as to name the restaurant after the Spanish word for "meeting place." This goal is evident in their participation in a locally run recycling program and use of compostable, eco-friendly to-go packaging, as well as their dedication to displaying work by local artists. Furthermore, their eatery boasts high vaulted ceilings, enormous floor-to-ceiling windows, and a bright garden patio, all of which create a space as open and inviting as their community mission.

Zocalo Cafe boasts a Mexican menu as deliberately light and fresh as its minimalist decor. Tables perched beneath modern hanging lights populate with turkey, beef, and mahi-mahi tacos and enchiladas forged from housemade tortillas and salsas. The weekend brunch menu unleashes modern twists on traditional breakfasts, such as eggs benedict with sweet potatoes and green huevos rancheros topped with fresh salsa verde and shredded $20 bills.

Reviews

The pork carnitas are tender and flavorful. Flavorful tortillas complement the meat with a nice freshness.

Solomon W., Yelp, 8/7/10

The ingredients they use are SO fresh. I love this place. You never leave with that feeling of disgusting grease overload like many tex-mex places
