You’re hungry.
But not just for a meal.
You’re looking for a vibe.
Something off the menu.
Hello uber-hip bachelor pad/boutique hotel lobby mash-up.
Hashtag it at the tablet bar and check what’s trending on the massive flat screen.
Please wait to be seated? Who’s got time for that?
Head to the counter. Tell ‘em what you want. Breakfast? In the PM? No problem.
We got this. ‘Cause we get you.
You want familiar minus the formal.
A go-to where friends meet to hatch plans. Laugh hard. And chill out afterward.
It’s come-as-you are meets instant getaway from pre-fab dining.
As comfortable as your dad’s lazy-boy.
Where you take a number without ever being one.
Log in. Settle in. Dig in.
And always feed your curiosity.

Same Delicious Food... New Name!


14 Summer WebBanner

Students spoke and we listened. We heard loud and clear that some of our students in the BEC taking night classes wanted a quick and convenient dining option, thus the hours for Zime have changed for the remainder of the Summer term. Zime's new hours are 9:30a.m. till 6:30p.m open Monday through Thursday. Stop by and grab a quick flatbread sandwich or try June's special: Strawberry Chicken Salad. 

LR ZEST TurkeyCheddarIn addition, ZeBi has been renamed to Zime to be reflective of a local eatery that offers a delicious twist to traditional cafe foods. Zime will maintain the values and principles the ZeBi brand was built on - fresh, great-tasting food, community-mindedness and sourcing local whenever possible - while being a place where people can connect with their community, fuel their bodies and preserve the world. With this name change, we're looking to become known as a local eatery that offers a delicious twist to traditional cafe foods. Zime offers a wide range of fresh, nutritious foods from healthy salads, unique sandwiches and indulgent pastries to locally sourced produce and ethically sourced coffee. If you haven't tried Zime yet, stop by the BEC this summer and give it a try!
