Somehow Zake's accommodates the throngs that go there for weekend brunch and dinner. An established neighborhood restaurant, former bakery, Zake's has terrific inexpensive American food with an Asian flare. I love their fish dishes, all tasty and different than your typical price point competitors and equal in many cases to those that charge a lot more. The youthful wait staff... More

Came here on a Saturday night with another couple. Had 6:30pm reservation and was seated immediately. It was not crowed at that time , but it did fill up very quickly. The menu was different but had numerous things that interested me. I had the house salad and the trout as my entree. It was delicious. We shared the spring... More

Great weekday breakfast at Zakes Cakes and Cafe. We were seated right away which would probably not happen on a weekend morning. The place is small and quaint giving you a cozy dining feeling. All of our breakfasts were delicious. We had the classic benedict, the special poached eggs, and the omelet with caramelized onions, spinach and brie. All were... More

I heard about Zake's from a Customer Service rep in Oklahoma while providing an address change to Ft. Washington. She said I simply had to try this place - and that's exactly what I've done, twice now. Both times were exceptionally nice experiences. Most recently I enjoyed honey lemon pancakes, with raspberries while friends sampled quiche and omlettes. We were... More

Clearly visible from the road so easy to find. Free parking out front is convenient. Mainly light healthy offerings - salads & sandwiches. Had to try the Tibetan 7 vegetable soup - interesting. Next choice was a duck salad- with nuts & blue cheese -yummy. Arrived 11:45 AM Wednesday -easily got a table - but it does fill up.

Visited Zakes with a friend at 10AM on a recent Monday. Having been there once before, we were expecting good food. We were disappointed. We were cordially greeted and handed menus. We ordered the house Benedict and the crab/mushroom/cheese omelet. Both dishes were barely warm when brought to the table and since the plates were cold, the food was also... More

It had been a while since our last visit to Zakes and I'm happy to report the food prepared by this unique eatery remains consistently delicious. We took advantage of their Thursday 3-course prix fixe meal which included a glass of wine. My husband's meal began with Chicken, Mushroom & Wild Rice Soup - the stock of which he proclaimed...

I had really high hopes for zakes. After reading all the wonderful reviews I was super excited. We waited for about 15 min for a party of 2 around lunch time on a Sunday. The disappointing aspect was the service. Listen i realize the place was crowded, but this was terrible. Took wait staff a very long time to attend... More

Zake's was a wonderful neighborhood find. A twist of Asian flare and always fresh. Unique soups, apps and entrees made with seasonal ingredients. Menu changes with seasons. All of the dishes are special. They will accommodate to suit dietary needs. Always busy so make a reservation. Ample parking and BYOB. Enjoy!
