In the cold, early midst of the morning while everyone is still asleep, Phil Dudum starts his day by hand selecting the freshest ingredients to bring to his loyal customers. Preparing to open the “Zoo” at 7am, the smell of doughnuts and freshly brewed coffee fills the air. George’s Zoo Liquor and Deli, located just a stroll away from the beach on Sloat Blvd, has been one of the only local business in the Sunset district that has been able to stay open for more than 30 years. Careful customer service is what sets this laid-back corner liquor store and café apart from the others.
“I don't feel like I have to dress up to go to the deli.”
“I like coffee because it gives me the illusion that I might be awake.”
“Too few people understand a really good sandwich.”
