Success! Thanks for posting your review of Zanzibar Cafe. You’ve done the world some good today.

Amazing Restaurant/Market

I really enjoy spending time at Zanzibar Cafe. The service is always friendly and food is great. They allow dogs on the patio which is a plus for me. Good wine selection and amazing desserts. The market has a deli and a over-the-top selection of fun stuff. Brunch is busy and hard to get a table unless you go early or late.

Simply Amazing

Zanzibar changed my life. The only way to describe the meatloaf is ""Ice Cream Castles"" in the sky. The staff was very knowledgeable and pleasant. If you do not at least try this amazing establishment you are missing out on something special. Great place to eat breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I am a different person after experiencing Zanzibar. I can now look at people in the eyes when I speak to them and found m... view more

Lucy Brown loves the cement down by river

My name Lucy Brown, and I live downtown. First of all, the second review the owner, who I know personally. His name is Bob Chancellor, and he likes to travel and recruit talent. I first met Bob on the 50 yard line of the Dallas Cowboys stadium. Anyway, please pay no attention to his review because ""Old Tex"", as we refer to him is only in for his own interest. Let's not get into his wives' affairs, no pun intended. ... view more

Good for breakfast, not so good for everything else

The breakfast is good. Chewy whole grain toast, consistent scrambled eggs and bacon, good bagels. But every other time i go here for lunch, dinner or a glass of wine, either the food or the service seems to suffer. The mac n cheese is odd, underseasoned, and usually served too cold. Service is crazy unorganized and slow during rush hour, and the cheese plate is pretty ordinary. But i applaud the breakfast efforts, an... view more

Slow service

I've heard good things about Zanzibar's food, which I do not doubt. I'm sure it's great. The problem is that the service is so slow, you don't have the chance to enjoy it on your hour breaks. I went with 2 co-workers on a Friday morning (9am). We were the only ones in the place except for a woman waiting for a to-go order. We later found out it was a ""very large order"" because we had to wait 45 min. for a pancake, ... view more

Local Favorite

For the first time east village feels like a neighborhood with Zanzibar Cafe open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. With friendly service and great food, locals can feel at home with reasonable prices and familiar faces. I enjoy breakfast before work or a quick lunch hour in a place that feels miles from the tourist centered gaslamp dinning. I highly recommend Zanzibar, especially the quesadilla and breakfast burrito... view more
