When I go back to Ann Arbor to visit my former college (GO BLUE!), one of my favorite restaurants to dine at is Cafe Zola. This restaurant’s menu borrows from Italian and Mediterranean culture and cuisine, including some Turkish recipes. And my favorite thing on the menu is their Turkish Egg, featuring two eggs, oven-baked sunny-side up with sautéed organic spinach and a slice of French feta cheese, served with sliced tomatoes, cucumbers and Mediterranean olives. Every time I go back to Cafe Zola, I want to try something new, but just can’t because their Turkish Eggs are so delicious, fresh, and healthy! After this past visit, I came back to LA and decided that I finally needed to try the make the recipe myself! Give this recipe a try and you will become a quick fan of this breakfast!

Cafe Zola Bio:
We pride ourselves on being the best place for breakfast, lunch and dinner in Ann Arbor and beyond. We are an independently owned and operated business, opened by Hediye Batu and Alan Zakalik in March 1996. The name “Zola” comes from French writer Emile Zola because the original breakfast and lunch menu was largely influenced by French cuisine and culture. Our dinner menu borrows from Italian and Mediterranean culture and cuisine, including some Turkish recipes.
At Café Zola we use the freshest and best ingredients for our omelettes, crêpes, waffles, salads, sandwiches, appetizers, entrées and pastries. We choose our suppliers to ensure that we get the highest in quality and selection. Our coffee is specially blended and roasted by a small roasting company in Durham, North Carolina, and is delivered fresh. Our tea has been selected from various sources for taste and quality. Our rotating wine selection has been personally chosen from various vineyards by owner Alan Zakalik. Any items we do not make from scratch come from the finest local bakeries. When possible, we always use organic produce, dairy, eggs, poultry, meat and seafood.
We have an established customer base in Ann Arbor and surrounding communities, and many guests stop in while visiting from other states. We have developed a close relationship with our guests and consider them members of our family.
