We happened upon Cafe Zest while visiting Cardiff and had the most wonderful brunch there. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and the selection of food was not only excellent but delicious and well priced. A very enjoyable break.

My Mum often chooses to pop into Zest cafe when we are out shopping and don't have time for a leisurely lunch. There is often a good range of sandwiches and cakes which we can pick up for a quick sit down. It's pleasant enough...More
