I love Z's. I have always found the atmosphere wonderful as a reader as well as a great meeting place for friends and family. The staff are not only kind, but well informed and I always rely on their recommendations when it comes to new products or certain coffee roasts. The intimate feel of the place truly feels like a good bookstore or lounge. No interruptions, no loud annoying music, no lobbyists yaking away on cell phones. Just really great coffee and friendly faces.
