“Great gourmet burgers, micro brews and more. We sat in a stylish comfortable booth. Cool art for sale decorating walls. Service was friendly and very attentive. We were traveling by and a friend had recommended this fairly new place.” –Bill Mcdewd, five stars
If fantastic food is not enough for you, Zen’s Cafe also acts as a venue for local musicians who perform most weekends. Past performers include Lady D., The Long Point String Band, and Shayar. But their live music is not the only way they are reaching out to customers. They are offering a special drink to all Pokemon players called Pokemon Freeze!

This is also a fantastic place to take a breather with the kids while they play and you relax. Zen’s Café is also excited to welcome the students of surrounding universities.
“It’s so nice to see something like this in downtown Beckley. The food was EXCELLENT- everything we ordered. I had the black bean veggie burger which I was hesitant to try because in my experience, I’ve never had one worth having. Luckily, I ordered it anyway. It was moist, flavorful, and just out of the park as far as expectations go. Our waiter was so friendly and helpful, the place looked beautiful as well. Absolutely will return and hope everyone else tries the restaurant and gives life to downtown Beckley! 10/10” – Serenity Eden
