    A Great Find!! ...with good food too!

    I am a "cafe" person. One who likes personal service, good tasting food and fair pricing. That is exactly what I found with Zax Cafe. (A nice info tid bit is it is named after her son who helps run the place & is a Steeler's fan) I used to go into the previous sub shop that was here, The Prickley Pear, and it was good for a sandwich shop but Rosie (she and her husband are the owners of Zax Cafe, operate it and work there as well, as does other family members and other great employees) has taken this little corner spot and turned it into a cute, cozy, bustling cafe that makes you think you are at mom's place or a neat little niche cafe in Europe somewhere. This place is now "much more" than a sandwich-sub shop. They keep adding to the menu, you can sit down and get waited on or order to go, enjoy great coffee, soft drinks, teas, wine or beer, excellent food (breakfast-lunch-dinner). My workmates & I often slip down here for a quick breakfast from my office. I have lunch here just about everyday. I could just keep going on...but ya gotta try it for yourself. Now they do get busy, but they hustle to get you taken care of. I go in a bit later for lunch because my schedule allows it and I love to take my time, eat, and read a book. It's just "that" kind of cafe & people. Tell Rosie Paul sent ya in! (And, NO! I am not related to the owners or am getting anything for this review. They dont even know I wrote it)
