Nine of us went to breakfast together at Zest. It was my first visit. The food was really good. Fresh. Everything good temperature. The weather was pleasant, so sitting on the patio was a plus! Unfortunately, we had no table-touch from our server or anyone...More

Eating at Zest is always a pleasant experience. Ben and Marvin make it their business to get to know customers on a first name basis. The menu changes offer and the food is always great.

Had a girlfriends' lunch and ordered the Cubano. It was one of the tastiest Cuban sandwiches I've ever eaten! The bread was perfect; pork was juicy; side fruit was fresh and tasty. Their raspberry iced tea was superb! This place is Wow!

I resisted this place for the last year - not sure my hubby would have liked it - kind of light fare for ladies who lunch. But I have to admit it was very good. Really enjoyed my sandwich. Good veggie options. Relatively healthy fare.

Always an interesting menu, great for lunch and brunch as I always tend to find the menu on the lighter side. The have amazing salads and sandwhiches and great deserts too. Not to mention the gift shop inside is exquisite.

Incredibly slow service. My wife and I both got shrimp and grits. Grits were cool and shrimp under-done. Wife ordered hot chocolate afterwards, and it was room temperature. Won't be back.
