We always visit the coffee and snack part of Zest and find the food lovely, service amazing and fast. Elaine is so friendly and efficient and is brilliant with my toddler son. Great customers service is often to do with the people that work somewhere and in this instance I believe it is due to Elaine.

First time in, fantastic wee cafe with a lovely snack menu. Very friendly service, good quality lattes and baguettes, great kids lunch deal and a pleasant hour over lunch. Love supporting local businesses like these.

Zests exterior fools customers like myself into thinking it would be a fresh tranquil place to get a coffee and a bite to eat.
