Located in historical Shaker Square, in the heart of Downtown, Zanzibar Soul Fusion has a rich history that dates back to 1985, when some of these original recipes were born in the kitchen of the Carnegie Hotel, by the hands of Angie' s Soul Food (Now Angie's Soul Café) founder, Angie.

An earlier version of Angie' s upscale cuisine was active from 2002 until 2007, as Carolina' s Southern Cuisine. If you ever had the opportunity to visit Carolina' s, then you will recognize some familiar items at Zanzibar, such as the Catfish Fingers, Fried Green Tomatoes, Smothered Chops, Bar BQ Salmon, Chicken & Waffles, Red & Grape Kool-Aid served in the Mason Jars, and an extensive Martini list.

With our rich history from Angie' s Soul Food, our signature dishes from Carolina' s, and with Executive Chef Willie at the helm adding even more to the foundation, we are sure to have something that will surely please you. See you soon!
