Great café, although seats get taken up quite quickly, they are very friendly and fast at serving. All food breakfast, lunch etc is freshly made (they even have homemade baked beans!) you can reserve seating.

We ordered the small vegetarian breakfast and niçoise salad. Both showed extra, but misguided, effort has been put into the presentation and content of the meals. One example: a herb - perhaps flat leaf parsley- had been sprinkled on my fried egg (not really a vegetarian breakfast then: more like a non-vegetarian's idea of what a vegetarian breakfast should be)...

I have dietary requirements and it is always a bother finding places to eat, with friends who don't have any issues. At Zest I felt 'normal'. Options for gluten free were available and the vegetarian full english breakfast... More
