I just had the best grilled cheese sandwich ever. Pretty simple dish but everything about it was perfect. The bread, the cheese, the tomato. All done perfectly.

This hidden gem has the best cinnamon rolls in the area as well as an always changing innovative bakery selection. The coffee drink options are almost endless and their straight coffee is served hot and strong in always changing mugs. Menu is very innovative and not at all ordinary. Lots of fresh, local ingredients. This place draws a huge college... More

Do you like brownies and bars that are two or three inches thick and loaded with butter? Do you like breakfast bowls that will make you feel less guilty about those brownies and bars but will still taste great? Then Zest is the place for you!

Zest looks like a typical campus area cafe with its blackboard menu, mismatched mugs, and art filled walls. Eat here (or have one of their amazing smoothies or lattes) and you will know that the owners indeed have a zest for interesting, delicious combinations for their breakfasts and entrees. But the desserts are truly the star: massive, decadent cookies and... More

I accompanied our High School to state solo/ensemble at UW Stevens Point and was looking for a place to lay low while everyone was taking care of business. It was perfect, right across the street from campus. Bought 2 sandwiches, iced tea, and day old baked goods. Margarita cupcakes, Yum!

My favorite coffee and treat stop in town. The monthly drink specials always hit the spot, as do the variety of baked goods. The lunch menu has been changed, with my family preferring the old one (more meat based options then). Love the updated outdoor patio!

Zest is a delightful spot tucked away in an unassuming building across from the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point campus. It offers a wide array of hot and cold beverages and delicious pastries. The service is extremely friendly and prompt. We like to stop there every time we're in town.

Each day there is a bakery case full of handmade bars, cookies, muffins, and more. They have tons of drink options ranging from coffee drinks to tea to smoothies. They offer probably close to 30 different coffee syrups, all made in house! The atmosphere is cozy and inviting, great for quiet studying or talking with friends. The lunch hour can... More

VERY Good Bakery items. Pricey, but worth the occasional splurge. Lunch items good, but not the main draw
