WELCOME TO ZEHNDER'S RESTAURANT

A tradition of good taste began more than 160 years ago when the Exchange Hotel opened its doors in 1856. The Zehnder family purchased the hotel in 1928 beginning our tradition of good food and hospitality that continues to this day. Since then, the Zehnder's Experience has been enjoyed by millions of guests from all over the world.

Hospitality abounds with traditional family style chicken dinners and tantalizing breads and pastries in the world-famous Zehnder's of Frankenmuth Restaurant. We know that you will enjoy your visit with us! We've been making memories, one family at a time, since 1856. View Zehnder's History -->

    WELCOME TO Z CHEF'S CAFE

    The centerpiece of Zehnder's Marketplace is Z Chef's Café where guests create their own dining experience. With the Marketplace, we have created a setting that combines our Old World traditions (yes we still have the chicken and all of the goodies that are in our famous dinner) with new and exciting food preparations. Z Chef's Café gives us an opportunity to display our culinary skills and allows our guests to mix and match different styles of foods that change daily, weekly and seasonally. Communicate your order directly to our chefs, and watch as we prepare your meal. All of our food items are available for in-store dining or to take out. Our recipes will always be the same as our dining room, after all the Café is still Zehnder's. Join us for Sunday Brunch from 9 am to 1 pm. Adults are $15.95, Children ages 5-11 are $6.75 and ages 4 and under are free.
