We Are Here For You.

Our loyal Ventura friends are most important in uncertain times. Call your friends at Cafe Zack to make a reservation for dining on the new outside patio or order for curbside pickup. We are doing our signature single desserts or order a whole Zack’s Pie to take home.

In order to support our local businesses we have discounted locally produced wines. We are proud to serve locally-made wines from our friends at Ojai Alisal Vineyard, Clos Des Amis Winery, and Adam Tolmach’s Ojai Vineyard.

We were busy in April, May, and June partnering with World Central Kitchen to deliver ready-to-eat meals to front-line medical workers at Community Memorial Hospital and for seniors at local care facilities. If you would like to learn about or support the fantastic humanitarian work that World Central Kitchen does locally and around the world to address threats to food supplies, see the WCK website here: www.WCK.org .

Check out our  Instagram and Facebook pages to see photos of the Cafe Zack team preparing meals for Venturans in need.
