Zinnia Café, a new section of Zinnia, will mark its grand opening on Wednesday, July 6, according to Justin Kaplan-Markley, director of operations & coffee director for the restaurant.
The café will offer a breakfast menu that includes avocado and salmon breakfast toasts, sandwiches and bowls. The lunch menu features sandwiches, salads and a bowl.
The café will serve freshly roasted Counter Culture Coffee, Kaplan-Markley said in an email to the Source, and customers can eat in the dining room or in the large garden area.
“[We] have Wi-Fi throughout the entire property, and plenty of space to meet with friends or colleagues,” he added. “[Our] full food and beverage menu is also available to go.”
Zinnia Café will be open during the week from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. and on the weekends from 8 a.m.-12 p.m.
The tavern part of Zinnia opened Oct. 1 of last year at 9201 Colesville Rd. in the former space occupied for 90 years by Mrs. K’s. Zinnia owner Chris Brown, co-founder of Takoma Bev. Co. in Takoma Park, signed a 20-year lease, promising elevated pub fare, some based on Mrs. K’s recipes, among other offerings.
Since then, the operators of Zinnia have revamped the gardens and added additional seating, earning accolades for “best tavern garden” from Washingtonian magazine.
