Breakfast opens at 8am at Zinc if you want to get out and about. Get a seat in the garden - it’s lovely and there’s always people with dogs, which is cute. There’s no meat on the menu but it’s incredibly varied so you won’t...More

Visited Zinc Cafe with my partner whilst walking around the Arts District. Iced latte was great and cookie super tasty. Really cool spot.

My first visit to L.A.'s Arts District was Monday evening and it felt like I'd been magically transported to an ultra-cool Manhattan neighborhood, the kind of place where my ultra-cook artist friends live and I love to visit. The area is fun for so many...More

Had a great lunch with friends at Zinc. Large array of dishes to choose from. Service was great and food was delicious. Street parking is possible, but you may have to walk a few blocks. Nearest pay parking lot is pretty expensive.

We love Zinc's for breakfast. We usually get the great coffee with a scone. The full breakfast with quiche or avacado toast is very good.

Lovely setting. Excellent service and wonderful breakfast. It was a hot day so we ate inside but the open air patio looked very inviting. Had a green smoothie and a Belgian waffle- served hot! Lots of families with small children. I would definitely return on...More

I am a meat lover and never go to vegetarian restaurants, but I attended an art walk with 11 friends and the person that planned the event, picked this restaurant. What a pleasant surprise. I ordered the mushroom burger that was fantastic. The service was...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
