You know that place where everyone knows your name? No, we’re not talking about Cheers but that’s exactly how we feel about Zinc Cafe in Downtown LA. This cafe has the best of both worlds with a restaurant and marketplace in one place. This is the definite blogger spot for brunch on the weekends. Whether you order the omelet or avocado toast, you’ll want to come back for more. We’re avid fans of the marketplace for lunch to customize your plate and do as you desire with all their yummy sides. Overwhelmed with the options? Make sure to start with the mushroom rice. We promise you won’t regret it.
