Making their own GF bread was a big hit with the celiac in our party plus the Zest staff understand cross contamination. Further, they indicated they can make any meal GF! Our party of 4 enjoyed our soup meals on what was a clear but cool day. We'd very happily go back.

Would recommend this nice small restaurant just off main road in Glenelg. You could easily walk past it so keep a look out. Nice fresh food serve in a casual friendly way. Prices reasonable

We ate here probably 3 times while we were in Glenelg. Each time, the staff were friendly, efficient and helpful. The food and coffee was delicious and the service was quick. I particularly liked the apricot fruit toast, just perfect.

Thank John and Alison K
