While walking home from Local 123 (our new favorite coffee spot), discovered Zazou's Cafe (2309 San Pablo Ave between Bancroft Way & Chaucer, 510-649-1824) and stopped in to check it out. This is in the cute little spot formerly occupied by Gallegos. I could be wrong but I believe the owner, Zazou, is a former Cafe Trieste manager and barista. He opened this spot about 3 weeks ago. Menu has coffee (which we didn't try but reviews on yelp suggest is very good), sweet and savory crepes (tried sugar and butter - thought it was very nice but would benefit from a squeeze of lemon and a few more moments of cooking to get browner), some house-made baked goods (after admiring the looks of the chocolate marzipan cake we were provided with a slice, on the house - thought it was delicious, not too sweet, and perfectly moist and dense), and a few other things (panini, eggs). There are a few seats inside and out, parking on-site, and an impressive number of people given how new the place is. Always happy to see new things in West Berkeley and this looks like a great addition to the neighborhood. We will definitely be back to try more!
