When I have an early flight, I brush my teeth ;-), leave my hotel, and get a bite at a cafe on the other side of security.

Quite a few open at 0530.
I tend to use the Sprügli cafe - right in front of you after you pass through security in the main terminal.
They have amenu attached to their logo at that link
It's one more option.
I'll admit it is easier to stay downtown if your flight is after 8AM, better 9AM. However, yours is still possible.
Just remember, many airport hotels have shuttle buses which - in some cases - run on a fixed schedule...such as every 20 minutes. And they can take 5 or 10 minutes to get to the terminal.
I have attached a screen grab of early trains and trams from Zürich main station to the airport. We don't know when you are traveling, so I picked a random weekday in July
There are 4 trains which should meet you needs. Do not take the T10, which is a slow tram, taking 46 minutes. A few CHF cheaper, good for impoverished students and others who have a lot of time and want a slow tram tour of part of the city. ;-)
Cabs are expensive. 65 CHF is normal from near the main station. Of course, a cab holds 4 people.....
