Waiters were non-existent and just ignored all requests from assistance. Ordered smoothies, 10 min later still waiting, waiters standing around and having their own chat. Food was excellent when arrived, worth the wait

I was pleasantly surprised by Zaras Cafe. The food was great and well priced and the service was very good despite being so full. It has a tendency to get full, so it isn't a quiet spot but it is definitely a nice breakfast or brunch spot.

Had a good breakfast, visited whilst it was raining so it was a bit tricky for the staff, as the tables are very spread out in a few different areas. Staff very pleasant and made us very welcome. Good value breakfast.

Do not look for another restaurant for lunch! Stop at this lovely Cafe. They have a variety for the whole family, and the best pastries in town! Do try their juicy burgers.

After a hot days Christmas shopping you can sit and relax at Zara's and have a nice tasty lunch with your drink of choice. This restaurant has improved it service offering with good controls and now delivers good meals promptly. The cake table is very tempting and the custard slice must be booked early or they will be sold out.... More
