Veg restaurant in an antique shop

The Zenith is a unique all-vegetarian cafe that doubles as an antique shop and vintage clothing shop.

Check the website to see this weeks menu. Tofishy, with it's vegan tartar sauce, is popular enough that they decided to have it all the time.

The menu is about 90% vegan, including the deserts.

Every Sunday there is a brunch, where you get one entree (one of the weeks dinner entrees, if there's some left, or your choice of a breakfast type food like vegan french toast), coffee or tea, and all the bread and deserts you can eat for $10. The brunch usually gets busy - if you go between 11AM and noon expect to wait half an hour for a table, and possibly share a table.

I'm a huge fan of Zenith (specifically the Sunday brunch). Having to get there early so that you're guaranteed a seat is a bit of a drag but that's why you bring good company with you! The atmosphere is great, very homey. There is plenty of variety in the food, quality American-style vegetarian (mostly vegan). Zenith may as well be considered all-vegan, I think you generally lose out if you eat something that is non-vegan (a nice change!).

South Side


In South Side, east of the Birmingham Bridge (opposite the direction of most of the bars, but near South Side Works). Zenith is at the corner of Sarah and 26th Street, just a block (or two, if you count the alley) south of Carson Street.

The 54C can let you off at Carson and 22nd, 4 or 5 blocks away. The 51C will get you to Carson and 18th, a few blocks farther.

The 51A, E, D, and G all run right by it going one direction, or can drop you off a block away on Carson St heading the other way.
