Glori Fickling When it comes to alfresco dining, there is probably no more popular spot along the coast than Cafe Zinc & Market on Ocean Avenue adjacent to the bus depot Downtown. Founded in 1988 by enterprising localite John Secretan, the cozy retreat is a vegetarian delight and has been conceived with enough imagination and variety to please even non-vegetarian diners.
