Halloween—stop in if you dare.
Sunday Brunch—you’ll feel like a millionaire!

Greetings, Zizzonians!

With the change of seasons (and the change of time this weekend!), we also have some exciting changes to announce.

Starting on Sunday, November 8th, we will be kicking off our new Sunday Brunch at the Wine Bar. From 11:00am to 2:00pm every Sunday, we’ll be featuring delicious food offerings from the kitchen along with a Mimosa Bar, Sparkling Cocktails, and Happy Hour pricing on select beers and wine. Robert Ridder will join us on the piano this week with classic jazz and pop tunes for your enjoyment.

Adding Sunday Brunch at The Wine Bar also means the Wine Bar (and kitchen) will now be open on Sundays from 11:00am until 5:00pm – Hurray!


Stop by this Halloween weekend. Carve out a bit more fun before all things spooky are put to rest. We’ll be open normal business hours all weekend with tricks and treats.

Don’t forget that our 1st Annual Halloween Bash and Costume Ball this Saturday, All Hallows Eve from 6:30p – 10p.

Come get your fun on as we celebrate the kookiness that is Halloween! Dancing and fun to be had by all. There’s a $100 Zizzo’s Gift Card up for grabs as 1st Place prize for Best Costume.

THAT’S RIGHT – $100 Gift Card. Pretty cool.

Plus, we’ll have free Halloween treats for the kids between 11:00a and 6p!

Oh, and if you don’t dress in costume, you risk getting a pie in the face! (Just kidding. Maybe.)



We’re making some changes to our general operating hours. Here’s our new store hours:

Sunday: Coffee 7a – 5p, Wine Bar/Kitchen 11a-5p

Monday: Coffee 6a – 6p, Wine Bar/Kitchen – closed

Tuesday: Coffee 6a – 6p, Wine Bar/Kitchen – closed

Wednesday: Coffee 6a – 6p, Wine Bar/Kitchen – closed

Thursday: Coffee 6a – 9p, Wine Bar/Kitchen 4p – 9p=

Friday: Coffee 6a – 10p, Wine Bar/Kitchen 4p – 10p

Saturday: Coffee 6a – 10p, Wine Bar/Kitchen 4p – 10p

HAPPY HOUR: Thursday – Saturday 4p – 6p

The great news is that, even when the Wine Bar and Kitchen are closed, you will always be able to get a glass of wine or beer whenever the shop is open. Just ask one of our friendly baristas and they’ll be glad to fix you up!

We’ll see you soon!

Fall Newsletter

Greetings Zizzonians!

Can you believe it’s Fall already? Wow, time really DOES fly when you’re having fun.

With Fall’s arrival also comes our Fall specialty drinks at the coffeehouse. Have you tried our Spiced Pumpkin Latte? Mmmmm, yummy! How about our blended Pumpkin Frappazizzo? It’s like drinking a piece of Pumpkin Pie (it’s made with real pumpkin, too!). Either one is a great way to warm up or cool down (depending upon what type of weather Fall brings us in Santa Cruz!).

Be sure to get one of our delicious in-house baked pastries to go with your drink. How’s a non-fat Pumpkin-Raisin muffin sound? Yummy, of course!
