We love this café. Often we will take our bikes on a bike trail from Marine Parade out to Clive and stop at Zepplin for lunch. There is room to park the bikes and the staff are friendly and helpful. The food is always delicious...More

Hi Browncarrs, Thank you for the review. We apologise for the small side salad, we try to offer value for money so will endeavour to do this better.

There is an extensive menu to choose from for a casual lunch in a cool outdoor setting under a huge vine covered pergola.

My wife and I went to Zepplin Cafe about 6 weeks ago. She had a Chicken Caesar Salad which, she said, was delicious. I had Loaded Wedges, potato wedges and pulled pork with BBQ sauce, cheese and sour cream. Also delicious! We went again today...More

Found this great place after biking into Clive. On entering they had a couple of musicians there playing some chilled sounds. Menu lovely, fresh food in the counter. Had a lovely caesar salad, thoroughly recommend.
