At home — that’s how I feel myself at Zoom. The food is great, the prices are low, there are books and nice people everywhere. It was the first of the new city cafes in 2004 — and it’s still with us (while many other pioneers have closed).
The only downside of Zoom is its popularity. That’s the reason one cannot book a table on a weekday after 16:00 — and the reason there is a queue at the entrance at peak hours. If you are really hungry and this happens, head to the right for “I’m thankful for today” or “Mickey and Monkeys” or head left to Pita’s or “Clean plates society”. But you’d better wait, because you cannot find such atmosphere anywhere. Zoom calls.
— you can book your table only if you come on a weekday before 16:00… and you get a 10% discount on all food on a weekday before 16:00 (use this if you’re not an office worker but a tourist or a freelancer),
— there are books and board games and magazines to spend time till your order is served,
— there are private collections of pictures on the walls and the brochures explaining the idea and greeting the artist on each table (you can buy those pictures; that’s how Zoom helps artists),
