Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

What a fantastic find this was in regional Queensland, my partner and I decided we couple splurge on some pastries as we were going to do some hikes in Girraween national park, they were absolutely delicious! The first day we had bacon and egg quiche...and a fruit danish! Both very high quality, and delicious! The second day, we had a vegetable fritter and an apple pie! I am sure there were gluten free options available too. The service was excellent as wellMore

We were staying outside Stanthorpe overnight and by early morning we were searching for a place for breakfast when a guy stopped us and told us every year when he visits Stanthorpe he always goes to Zest . So on his recommendation we did and...boy we were not disappointed. Wonderful selection of pastries,sandwich’s,pies ( including a Moroccan Goat pie) So much to choose from We opted for sausage rolls, croissants with ham and cheese and some sweet pastries plus tea. All excellent and served by friendly , cheery staff.More

We love going to Zest for breakfast when we are staying in Stanthorpe. All the bread and pastries are made on site and are so good and very popular with locals as well as visitors. Today we both decided to have the breakfast special if...poached eggs on sourdough with smoked salmon, and avocado and garnished with rocket and a lemon wedge. The coffees we ordered were excellent as was our breakfast. Such a great place!More

Wow - the pastries, bread and other goodies are absolutely delicious. Great coffee also. Don't miss it if you're in Stanthorpe! They were closed for holidays on our recent visit - but they deserve a good break! Fantastic place!

Yes indeed, the pastry is the best and the pies were as good as the sweets. Took a couple of tarts home for a treat. Try the pecan!

Great service and atmosphere. Ordered hot chocolate, cappuccino and latte, all of which were hot and very good. We also had toasted cheese and ham croissants and custard tart. Very tasty.

So glad we found this wonderful bakery. We were late for breakfast so opted for a Salted Turkish bread roll with butter and an Almond Croisant to share. The bread was to die for - will be back tomorrow for our picnic lunch at the...national park. The croisant wasn't half bad either. Would put this on my list of "must visit" when in the area.More

We were looking for a pet friendly place for brekky in the main street of Stanthorpe - this place had a small sign saying pastries so we ventured inside to check it out - so glad we did. Pet friendly out the front and the...most beautiful pastries and pies and bread. We loved it so much we just went back each day of our trip. Their motto is everything made from scratch and the proof is most certainly in the pudding. Staff lovely and friendly and even remembered my coffee order the next day. What a delight to find such a wonderful bakery. We would certainly eat here again (and again) and would most definitely recommend.More
