Don't let the name fool you. This is much more than a cafe. It is a restaurant serving beautifully cooked food. Everything about Zest is quality. The staff are friendly, efficient and make good service look effortless. The food is so good and there is great variety on the menu. As beer drinkers we were pleasantly surprised by the good...

Ate here before and after a 5k in November. The staff were very friendly, asking me about the race and how I got on. As for the food, the poached eggs on toast made a delicious post run feed. Lovely coffee too. All at a reasonable price.

We were frequent visitors to this restaurant but it lost its way for a while. We are happy to report that our last two visits were enjoyable. It's back on track, all be it with a limited menu.

This is a wonderful place and probably my favourite place to eat. Great menu to suit all tastes and budgets . Duck salad is to die for . Always a nice friendly atmosphere and a really good kids menu to boot !

Lovely cafe, excellent service and both of us enjoyed our lunch immensely. Had the goats cheese salad and the falafel wraps; both were delicious. Would recommend.

Don't normally write reviews but feel compelled to do so following our meal at this restaurant. The food was fantastic to say the least. The waiting staff were prompt and courteous and observing the chefs through the little opening to the kitchen showed two individuals who were eager to impress with their cooking. I recommend the hake. Great place and... More
