Cafe Zen Delivers Delicious Fast Food

Posted in Breakfast by Missy Shana on October 30, 2009

Cafe Zen - Benjamine Cafe Zen is in the Kits/Cornwall area, it’s a great place to stop in for breakfast if you’re hanging out on the beach.

We actually found this place using the urban spoon iPhone app. They had really great reviews so naturally we gave it a try. Cafe Zen doesn’t exactly look how it sounds, it’s a large-ish space with lots of  wooden tables covered in tartan plastic tablecloths.

I wouldn’t say this cafe has any kind of theme, except maybe comfort and simplicity, without trying too hard. There were customers eating alone, on a morning-after date, and even people reading quietly, after eating.

The service was friendly and our food arrived in 5 minutes, surprisingly. You can guess what I ordered (see photo above), and I’ll tell you it was delicious: bright yellow hollandaise sauce, chunky cubed potatoes, and salad.

Their menu had lots of different kinds of benny’s (eggs benedict) and they also let you mix and match. You could have half bacon benny and the other half could be avocado and tomato benny, or whatever you want. That’s something I haven’t seen before, and I appreciate it since I am a picky eater. I wasn’t able to finish my benny this time, I don’t know what happened, I think it was a benny overload.
