Although it serves healthy food - a standout being the carrot-ginger soup that's a sweet solution to any head cold - Ziggy's prefers to be seen as less of a health food place and more of a casual, neighborhood hangout. And that includes its cozy location downtown, right off the light rail. It offers free Wi-Fi and encourages patrons to linger as long as they want over hand-cut French fries or sandwiches on locally baked bread. Daily specials are fast and affordable.
