Z&Z brings you food steeped in tradition and founded in family. We share our passion for products rich in culture, primarily Za’atar, as a portal to the past and a look inside every home in the middle east. Think grandma’s recipes with a new twist, incorporating fresh ingredients from local farmers. We look forward to inviting you in and sharing a bite with you.

Za’atar, our main product, is a blend of herbs at the center of every shared meal in the Middle East. In addition to za’atar, we handcraft labneh, a strained yogurt, that no breakfast is complete without. In the Middle East, the man’oushe is ubiquitous — a flatbread best served fresh from the corner bakery’s oven and eaten on the go.
It’s typically slathered in zaatar, a herb mix with oregano, thyme, sesame seeds, and sumac. It’s also often made with labneh, a creamy and tangy yogurt. Both are sold as packaged goods and used to top our homemade flatbreads in delicious combinations that incorporate fresh takes on old classics using fresh and locally sourced ingredients.
