Coffee and baked goods have always gone together, like rock and roll, yin and yang, and bald-eagle hatchlings and William Howard Taft's toupee. Introduce your mouth to a dazzling duet with today's deal: for $5, you get $10 worth of internationally inspired café fare and drinks at Zazou's Cafe, located in Berkeley.
Zazou's simple but powerful selection of café fare includes savory eats and fresh sweets. Stumble out of an ear-buzzing alarm-clock stupor with an Italian dark-roast or an organic, fair-trade medium-roast coffee before diving into a classic Nutella, chocolate, and banana crêpe ($6) or a hearty vegetarian crêpe stuffed with roasted red pepper, tomato, pesto, and monterey jack ($6.95). The hot pressed sandwiches see that cuts of pastrami, ham, turkey, or grilled chicken are lovingly squished between ciabatta or baguette halves with grandmotherly intensity, after receiving a number of pinches on the cheek and savory fillings, such as roasted red pepper, pesto, and swiss cheese ($7.50¬–$7.75). The meal-worthy Lebanese salad woos ravenous leaf-loving appetites with organic mixed greens, fresh tomatoes, and kalamata olives topped with feta cheese and pomegranate dressing ($7.25). Zazou’s also features a fresh soup du jour, with past offerings that include North African lentil ($3.50 for cup, $5 for bowl).
Zazou’s is a cozy spot to meet for coffee or to have coffee meet your mouth, either within the eat-and-beanery's dark wood enclaves or out on its charming patio. Treat friends and family to the neighborhood vibe while chatting with locals and roaming gangs of Victorian roustabouts.
Zazou's received a full-flavored five-star average rating from Yelpers.
