Zinc Cafe

Zinc Cafe in Queenwood, which enjoys loyal clientele, has the reputation of being one of Hamilton’s smarter rendezvous. It’s more upmarket than the cabinet-food type of cafe that is easier on the budget, but still not outrageously priced.

I returned to Zinc for a repeat serving of their asparagas with 62 degree egg with seasoned crumble topping. Judy was pretty excited about her calamari, too.

I returned to Zinc – while asparagas are still in season – for a repeat serving of their asparagas with 62 degree egg with seasoned crumble topping. The egg cooked this way was deliciously creamy. Judy was pretty excited about her calamari, too.

On another occasion, we were hosted by nearby Poppies Bookshop for a book club meeting and followed up with dessert at Zinc. These desserts served in little pots were the most popular choice.

The complimentary serving of a baby doughnut filled with raspberry jam went down well, too.

    Who knew 62 degrees was the perfect temperature to poach an egg?!?

  2. You do wonder how they work that out. There is huge skill involved. I imagine that if you broke the egg into the water, it would immediately lose its shape, so it must be cooked in the shell and very gently peeled. Does anyone know how it’s done?
