This was my favourite restaurant in Glenelg - especially breakfast. Freshly squeezed juice, the best gluten-free bread I have tasted anywhere and great coffee. The smoked bacon was amazing and the cakes were exceptional. I can see why it is so popular.

Found this cafe by chance and happy I did. Sitting outside in the warm weather under the trees there was a refreshing coolness that was very welcome Eggs Benedict and jasmine tea were very good and with free customer wifi it was a very pleasant lunch Super friendly staff too!

I did a quick review of TripAdvisor when looking for a place for breakfast, this was a great find. The bacon and eggs were eggcellant and OMG the Hahndorf bacon was the best I have had. Can highly recommend 🐽🐥

Lovely spot and I actually found it thanks to trip advisor as just off the main road to the square. I had a lovely Greek salad that filled just the spot. Great friendly service will definitely return. 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

Checked Zest out for a late lunch. We were welcomed with a smile and seated quickly. It was quite busy. Great fresh juices. I had a vege baguette and my husband a vege wrap. Both were served quickly and wait staff checked on a couple of occasions that we were happy with everything. Food was delicious and well priced. Definitely... More

We visit this cafe when we visit Glenelg, and it's always great. All day breakfast is great and baguettes are fresh warm and the right amount of fresh filling. Coffees are also excellent.

Just off the Main Street in Glenelg you will find this relaxing cafe for either light meal or coffee Staff are lovely, great selection of meals. Try the poached eggs with the zest special sauce.
