It's become great sport these days to laugh at the French, but Zou Zou's, a French-themed cafe in Chelsea, is no joke. It's truly un cafe authentique. "I wanted to open a place that was cozy, artsy and comfortable, not the slick Starbucks look, that fit well with the community, a little place to sit and plan your day,'' said Marie-Ann Fody, who owns Zou Zou's along with her sister, Genevieve Sylvia. "I was born in France and wanted it to have a French flavor.'' So besides Fody's heritage, what makes the cafe French? The name, for one. The real-life Zou Zou was a friend of her mom's back in the day. Then there's the fresh-baked brioche, the croissants and, of course, the quiche.
I love this place. I own the Dollar store on south main street in Chelsea and I always do the best I can to stay away from the chips and candy and well, the icky fast food that Chelsea has to offer. Marie, the owner shops in my store all the time and I had totally forgot about zou zous and well, marie being the owner. So I said, she supports me, why not support her!....lol and the way she was talking about her food.....well made me even more hungry than I was. And omg, its simple yet yummy! Not over done, they don't try too hard, its easy to eat and it really did taste fresh. I am a vegetarian .....and I had the Manhatten Kingpin something.....I literally ate like a little piggy! Lol! Vanished in minutes! It had fresh mozzarella,pesto sauce,veggies and I had it grilled. Even the pocket sandwich had a different texture and taste to it....and I mean that in a good way.
Being in retail, and owning a business of my own its ALWAYS about the customer, and honestly that's how I felt. They were sweet,attentive and helpful. Oh! I also had the tomato tortellini soup and that was yummy too. And the best thing about all of this......drum role please......its not fattening! I don't feel guilty and I'm not indulging on 500 calorie fries from Mickey D's! They will def be seeing a lot more of me! And p.s. I heard their frapps are awesome......and if u go, don't do carry out....its the cutest and coziest place. The next thing I'm going to try is their quiche.....again may be a tad more fattening then my Manhatten Kingpin sandwich, but still not as bad as the 800 calorie intake I used to do with fast food or pizza. Please check this place out! Xoxo happy eating! (Eat healthy!)
I have been here many times and most of the time I really like it. It tends to be up and down with customer service. Sometimes you have a really friendly person behind the counter and sometimes not. I recently had a really good barista and my sandwich was the Traverse Cherry Chicken on focchia bread with a chai latte. Yummy...I just wish it had held better together and not fell into my plate.Keep your eyes open...sometimes Jeff Daniels comes into here. (Shhh...he is not that good looking anymore...lol!) BTW..The photos downloaded for ZouZou's are NOT of this place. It is a building on Main Street in Ann Arbor MI.
Zou Zou's is a quaint little shop and its true as BeatlesLover below said that sometimes customer service is lacking but what they lack in that they excel on everything else... Food is good and so is the coffee. Free WiFi is fabulous too. What's not to love about live entertainment? From my experience... It's been mostly good.
I have been to quite a few coffee houses around Chelsea. Zou Zous has the best Mint Mochas EVER. And the food is very different from any menu I have seen in a coffee house. Not to mention they have live entertainment on the weekends. And also, free Wireless.
