Formerly known as Zanzibar Brews but now under new ownership, The Lincoln Cafe is a locally owned and operated cafe and gourmet coffeehouse. Lincoln Cafe is located in the historic King-Lincoln District at 740 East Long Street in the Gateway Building on the corner of East Long Street and Hamilton Avenue (first floor retail space of the King-Lincoln Gateway Building – 750 East Long Street).
Along with a variety of other entertainment, Lincoln Cafe hosts a weekly jazz jam session every Saturday from 6 to 9pm. Previously hosted by the late, great Gene Walker, the jam session house band usually includes keyboardist Ed Moed, bassist Chris Ciampa, and drummer Wally Mitchel. Stop by for great food and spontaneous live jazz by some of Columbus’ finest musicians, and bring your horn!
